Movies starring Olivia Colman

Confetti

Confetti is an excellent study of what happens when someone botches Christopher Guest's mockumentary format. A supposed satire of extravagant weddings and reality shows, Debbie Isitt's feature displays little in the way of wit or insight. It's lo...

Cuban Fury

Love and dance have been linked together for as long as there have been movies. Cuban Fury is the latest member of this proud tradition but it's not likely to cause many viewers to forget the classics (or even some of the not-so-classics) of the ge...

Empire of Light

Like Steven Spielberg with The Fabelmans, Sam Mendes has plundered his own memories of movie theaters to form the backdrop of Empire of Light. Mendes, however, lacks Spielberg’s deftness of touch. Although the scenes transpiring within the Empir...

Father, The

Favourite, The

With a sly wit and a dark edge, director Yorgos Lanthimos plunges into the murky waters of early 1700s British politics, where few positions were more enviable and less stable than being the queen’s favorite (or, in Brit-speak, “favourite...

Hyde Park on Hudson

Hyde Park on Hudson represents the odd marriage of an uninteresting, borderline-creepy "romance" and a peek behind the scenes of a notable but unsung historical event. 2012 has seen dramatizations of eras from the administrations of two of America'...

Iron Lady, The

If one was to judge the career of Margaret Thatcher, the U.K.'s Prime Minister from 1979 through 1990, based solely on this bio-pic, one might conclude that her tenure was unworthy of a cinematic account. Phyllida Lloyd's The Iron Lady presents Tha...

Lost Daughter, The

Although not much happens during the course of The Lost Daughter, the film’s tone exerts a powerful spell. A character study of a woman who’s neither as composed nor as affable as she initially seems, Maggie Gyllenhaal’s directorial debut ex...

Mothering Sunday

Something went wrong (or got lost) in the translation of Graham Swift’s novella to the movie adaptation, directed by Eva Husson from a screenplay by Alice Birch. There’s no debating that the finished product looks gorgeous, with all credit due...

Murder on the Orient Express

Like most Agatha Christie stories, Murder on the Orient Express is all about the “whodunnit?” Once that question has been answered, there’s little reason to revisit the story. Christie never cared much about character development and her ...
