First up, we have a look at Anne Fontaine’s lavish-looking tragic-drama, Two Mothers. The film, based on the acclaimed novel by Doris Lessing, stars Robin Wright and Naomi Watts as two childhood best-friends who each fall for the others much younger son. The emotional devastation seen in the recent trailer suggests a possible early contender for next years Oscars. It hits cinemas in France in April (with different title of Perfect Mothers), but there is still no word on UK/Us dates.
Dead Man Down reunites original The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo director Niels Arden Oplev, with his female lead, Noomi Rapace in a revenge-fuelled thriller co-starring everyone’s favourite sweary Irishman, Colin Farrell. The supporting cast ain’t too shabby either with Dominic Cooper and Terrence Howard (in ruthless mobster mode), also included.
