The Happy Prince

In the role of his career and his directing debut, Rupert Everett shines brightly as the troubled literary genius, Oscar Wilde during his final years.

Louise Keller, Urban Cinefile

Galveston

There's a sadness that permeates throughout this gritty tale about a hitman heading for Galveston in search of redemption.

Louise Keller, Urban Cinefile

Hotel Mumbai

The power of this film resides in how visceral it makes the story. Not just in terms of the violence, but the true intensity of the story. It's an exhaustive experience.

DVD/STREAMING

Adam Patterson, Film Pulse
