New This Week!

ENTERTAINMENT There's only one feature film out this week but it's a good one. The Deep Blue Sea is an adaptation of Terence Ratigan's 1952 play set in post World War II England. It stars Rachel Weisz as a woman trapped in a passionless marriage who becomes involved with former RAF pilot Tom Hiddleston.

SERIES The Boss leads the new tv series releases this week. It stars Kelsey Grammar as Chicago Mayor Tom Kane, who rules the city with an iron fist. Also this week, the new Masterpiece Mystery movie Endeavor tells the story of the early years of Inspector Morse as he investigates the disappearance of a schoolgirl in Oxford. Finally, series 5 of  Inspector Lewis also arrives on this side of the pond.

SUBTITLED The Israeli film Footnote is a dark comedy that tells the story of father and son Talmudic scholars, with the child as the more celebrated of the two. When the father is accidentally given an award intended for the son the committee that presented the award expects the son to break the news to the father, creating a moral dilemma.
