Then a Year
Beautifully acted silent elegy for the lost joys of youth, and for a whole era that seems to have come to an end.
Wendy and Lucy
A topical and restrained roadmovie about the frail heroine Wendy who loses her dog on the way to Alaska and has nothing to fall back on.
Meek wants to lead colonists to Oregon, by using a shorter route. Hardships mount up quickly. A real Western yet very topical.
Beautiful, thoughtful western focusing on friendship rather than strife. And on the diversity of the American frontier around 1820.
A charming, witty, subtle film about the difficulty of establishing and maintaining an art career.
