Ismael’s Ghosts

Twenty-one years ago, she ran away — and 21 years later, Carlotta is back from the void. But Ismael has been busy rebuilding a life for himself with Sylvia and working on his next movie. As Ismael’s trials and tribulations unfurl, so too do those of his film’s protagonist — the idle, funny and reckless diplomat Ivan Dédalus.

The one-liners fly as fast as political fortunes fall in this uproarious, wickedly irreverent satire from Armando Iannucci (Veep, In the Loop). Moscow, 1953: when tyrannical dictator Joseph Stalin drops dead, his parasitic cronies square off in a frantic power struggle to be the next Soviet leader. Among the contenders are the dweeby Georgy Malenkov (Jeffrey Tambor), the wily Nikita Khrushchev (Steve Buscemi), and the sadistic secret police chief Lavrentiy Beria (Simon Russell Beale). But as they bumble, brawl, and backstab their way to the top, just who is running the government? Combining palace intrigue with rapid-fire farce, this audacious comedy is a bitingly funny takedown of bureaucratic dysfunction performed to the hilt by a sparkling ensemble cast.

Comedy, R, 1 hr. 47 min., 2018.

What happens when you lose the foundation of your family? In the wake of a husband and father’s death, the family members he leaves behind find themselves adrift-and in danger of drifting apart-as they each try to find meaning in a world without the man who held them together. Mother Suzanne (Andie MacDowell) tentatively seeks companionship-but her attempts at dating only drive a wedge between her and older son Nicholas (Chris O’Dowd), whose own relationship with his girlfriend is disintegrating. Meanwhile, younger son Chris (James Adomian) deals with grief in his own complicated-and increasingly worrying-way. What plays out between the trio is a beautifully observed, powerfully emotional journey that speaks to the strength of family ties.

Drama, Not rated, 1 hr. 31 min., 2017
