Open Roads: New Italian Cinema 2017

The annual festival offers a rich and wide-ranging cross section of new Italian films.

Handsome Devil

This coming-out tale, exploring the quagmire of sexual politics in an all-boys private school, is a welcome anomaly. It’s not preoccupied with sex.

Like Crazy

Italy casts its golden spell over this ebullient and exhausting take on Thelma & Louise.

Wakefield

This savage journey of self-discovery is that rarest thing nowadays: a film for adults.

Radio Dreams

A delightfully droll and deadpan meditation on exile and belonging that focuses on a small Iranian radio station in San Francisco.

The Wedding Plan

A romcom where finding a soul mate is a test of faith

Agnès Varda and Jean-Luc Godard | Cannes 2017

Two seminal figures from the French New Wave come roaring back to Cannes (in one form or another).

Letters From Baghdad

An effective and fascinating portrait of Gertrude Bell, who helped establish the borders of Iraq and would aid in the formation of its government.

The Beguiled | Cannes 2017

Besotted, bothered, and bewildered are the Southern belles of Miss Farnsworth’s Seminary for Young Ladies.
