That rarest of things: a genuine, unclassifiable original that seems to have come out of nowhere. It's set in a nowhere time and place, a sort of post-Katrina New Orleans-meets-Kevin Costner's Waterworld, where our six-year-old narrator observes her father's illness and her bayou community's plight with dreamy detachment. It's a film that takes great risks – bare-bones story, non-professional actors, prehistoric creatures, jerky camerawork – but it all pays off beautifully.
Ginger & Rosa (12A)
Two 1960s girlfriends come of age in very different ways in this outstanding drama, shadowed by anxieties over the nuclear family and the nuclear threat. Beautifully shot and powerfully acted, it sits neatly between Fish Tank and An Education.
