THE TRUTH ABOUT EMANUEL:

KATE SAYS:

The Truth About Emanuel is a dark & quirky film, although it seems that efforts have been made to present the uncomfortable aspects of the story as tidily as possible for a mainstream audience.

Alfred Molina is particularly good as bereaved husband Dennis, moving on with his own life while remaining emotionally supportive of and close to his daughter, Emanuel, played by Kaya Scodelario who takes the lead with exceptional capability – further contributing to Gregorini’s talent for casting and directing young women, as she did so well with her previous feature Tanner Hall (co-written and co-directed with Tatiana von Furstenberg). And there are great supporting turns from Frances O’Connor (Janice) and Jimmi Simpson (Arthur) – names maybe unfamiliar, yet you’ll recognise both of them. The casting of Jessica Biel – who delivers a fine performance – may have hoped to attract wider distribution, however I imagine that anyone watching films for Biel might be expecting something more conventional, so unlikely to appreciate the general tone of Emanuel.

At times the pacing of The Truth About Emanuel might be a bit slow for some audience members. However, the film’s cinematographer, Polly Morgan, helps to create some captivating and memorable visuals; some of the sets are quite stylised and the costumes appear very carefully considered.

I could understand the perception that The Truth About Emanuel occasionally tries a bit too hard and almost trips over it’s own cleverness. Then again, maybe there were layers and symbolism that passed my by.

If you’re attracted or intrigued by the trailer then the film will certainly keep you engaged… Ultimately, it’s the visuals and performances, rather than the narrative, that left a lasting impression with me.

THE TWO FACES OF JANUARY:

The Two Faces of January is based on a Patricia Highsmith novel. It must, therefore, be worth a pop.

“Quite possibly the most conventional and conservative comedy featuring two straight dudes engaged in a dildo swordfight you’ll see all year.” – Matthew Lickona, San Diego Reader
