A Per­fect Day

(Spain) Span­ish di­rec­tor Fer­nando León de Ara­noa’s first English film cen­ters on a group of aid work­ers (Beni­cio del Toro, Tim Rob­bins and Mélanie Thierry) who have to re­trieve a corpse from a well at the end of the Yu­goslav Wars. A darkly whim­si­cal film with strong per­for­mances from Del Toro and Rob­bins, though it’s marred by its 2D fe­male char­ac­ters. Opens Jun 2.

Out of the mouths of babes come sober­ing con­cerns, fears and dreams about the fu­ture of the city. Opens Jun 2.
