  2. Studio: Roadside Attractions [Lionsgate]
    Director: Anton Corbijn
    Screenwriter: Andrew Bovell
    Starring: Philip Seymour Hoffman, Rachel McAdams, Robin Wright, Willem Dafoe, Daniel Brühl
    Genre: Action, Thriller

    Plot Summary:

    A Most Wanted Man is based on master story-teller John le Carré’s worldwide bestselling book. Anton Corbijn [The American] directs this modern day thriller, with Academy Award-winning actor Philip Seymour Hoffman, Rachel McAdams, Robin Wright and two-time Academy Award nominee Willem Dafoe toplining an ensemble cast.

    Hamburg, Germany: 2012. A mysterious, tortured and near-dead half-Chechen, half-Russian man on the run [Grigoriy Dobrygin] arrives in the city’s Islamic community desperate for help and looking to recover his late Russian father’s ill-gotten fortune.

    Nothing about this young man seems to add up; is he a victim or a thief or, worse still, an extremist intent on destruction? Drawn into this web of intrigue are a banker [Dafoe] and a young female lawyer [McAdams], who is determined to defend the defenceless. All the while, they are being watched by the brilliant, roguish chief of a covert German spy unit [Hoffman], who fights to put the pieces together as the clock ticks.

    In an adrenaline laced and heart-rending escalation of tension and collision, it’s not long before he becomes everyone’s most wanted man. A Most Wanted Man, a cerebral tale of intrigue in the vein of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, is also contemporary and deeply human, touching themes in love, rivalry and politics we live with every day...

    Starring: Helen Mirren, Manish Dayal, Om Puri, Charlotte Le Bon
    Genre: Comedy, Drama

    Plot Summary:

    In The Hundred-Foot Journey, Hassan Kadam [Manish Dayal] is a culinary ingénue with the gastronomic equivalent of perfect pitch.

    Displaced from their native India, the Kadam family, led by Papa [Om Puri], settles in the quaint village of Saint-Antonin-Noble-Val in the south of France. Filled with charm, it is both picturesque and elegant - the ideal place to settle down and open an Indian restaurant, the Maison Mumbai.

    That is, until the chilly chef proprietress of Le Saule Pleureur, a Michelin starred, classical French restaurant run by Madame Mallory [Helen Mirren], gets wind of it.

    Her icy protests against the new Indian restaurant a hundred feet from her own escalate to all out war between the two establishments - until Hassan's passion for French haute cuisine and for Mme Mallory's enchanting sous chef, Marguerite [Charlotte Le Bon], combine with his mysteriously delicious talent to weave magic between their two cultures and imbue Saint-Antonin with the flavors of life that even Mme. Mallory cannot ignore.

    At first Mme Mallory's culinary rival, she eventually recognises Hassan's gift as a chef and takes him under her wing...
