TIFF: The Quietude

Nathaniel R reporting from the Toronto International Film Festival

Martina Gusman (Carancho) and Oscar nominee Bérénice Bejo (The Artist) are exceedingly well cast as loving sisters reunited when their wealthy father has a stroke in this sexy family melodrama from Argentina.The sisters are tight despite years of separation but they have dramatically different relationships with their mother (a commanding turn from Graciela Borges) who clearly favors one and disdains the other.Despite the capable and supremely sexy cast (Edgar Ramirez and Joaquín Furriel are the male love interests for the sisters...and,well,whowouldn'tbe interested?) and a few witty visual moments and firecracker scenes,the movie is a mixed bag.The character arcs don't fully land given the erratic quality of the screenplay.

And I'm not one to normally harp on "the male gaze,"a triggering complaint now so frequently overused it's beginning to lose  meaning,but here we have a textbook example...

TIFF Discovery: A Shirley Henderson Master Class and a Wild Argentinian Family

bySean Donovan

Tribeca 2017: Nobody's Watching

We've still got some Tribeca reviews to catch up on,so here'sJason Adamsagain.

I know you're going to be shocked to hear this about someone who writes on the internet for a living,but I'm a bit of the solitary type.'A loner,a rebel,' inPee-weeparlance.I was an only child,a gay only child,and never learned how to make friends all that well,so I spent a majority of my teenage years wandering.I grew up in a small town but one big enough to wander,and when I moved to New York City after college I carried the habit with me.And New York rewards the hell out of such instincts;there's nowhere more comfortable for solitary wandering than in the middle of a great big oblivious crowd...
