Into the For­est: Home­grown dar­ling Pa­tri­cia Rozema ( I’ve Heard the Mer­maids Singing) di­rects Ellen Page and Evan Rachel Wood in this apoc­a­lyp­tic slice of sci-fi about two shel­tered sis­ters who must fight off dis­eases and biker gangs to en­sure their own sur­vival. Beeba Boys: Ac­claimed Cana­dian film­maker Deepa Me­hta for­goes her art-house in­cli­na­tions in this ride-or-die as­pi­ra­tional gang­ster drama about a fam­ily of charis­matic young Sikhs fight­ing a turf war on the West Coast. For real. Dheepan: Jac­ques Au­di­ard’s Palme d’Or win­ner tracks Sri Lankan refugees as they seek asy­lum in Paris. Lead ac­tor Antonythasan Je­suthasan is a for­mer Tamil Tiger child soldier him­self, adding gravitas to an un­doubt­edly wrench­ing im­mi­grant drama. Room: As a rule of thumb, we’ll blindly fol­low Brie Lar­son, a prodi­gious tal­ent who pours her heart into ev­ery­thing she does. That Room is di­rected by Frank helmer Lenny Abra­ham­son and based on the eponym­ous book by Cana­dian au­thor Emma Donoghue? Just ic­ing on the cake.
