Song One (Kate Barker-Froyland, 2014). Anne Hathaway in a micro-musical, with a grungy folksinger and a brother in a coma. Jonathan Demme produced. (full review 1/23).
Beloved Sisters (Dominik Graf, 2014). Near-three-hour German costume drama, with a structural device that suggests Graf is a big fan of Two English Girls. Which is something in his favor. The late-18th-century story’s about Schiller and his wife and her worldly sister, with the strong suggestion that he enjoyed both women a great deal. Then he wrote the Ode to Joy – I kid. (full review 1/23)
