Here's more about this week's new films from Alice Black, our Head of Cinema: 

“Jane Campion makes a welcome return to our screens with an adaptation of Thomas Savage’s novel The Power of the Dog. Set in 1920s Montana, this enthralling revisionist western is pure Campion – marrying the sublime with the brutal, capturing a landscape and a people driven by the fantasy and folly of western expansion.

“Céline Sciamma (Portrait of a Lady on Fire) is back with Petite Maman, a gentle but moving mediation on childhood, family, love and loss. Her talent for working with young actors is on full display, and the extraordinary twin sisters who play the leads – Joséphine and Gabrielle Sanz – are naturals.

“Graham Swift’s Mothering Sunday also gets a big-screen adaptation with a screenplay by Alice Birch, directed by Eva Husson. This intimate, sensual portrait of an impossible romance across the class divide is set against a backdrop of grief, responsibility and fragile hope in the interwar years.

“And finally, Liz Garbus’ new documentary Becoming Cousteau dives into the epic life of the iconic ocean explorer who brought the wonders and fragility of the natural sea world to a global television audience.”
