Cork fest un­reels over week­end

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

If you’re in shoot­ing dis­tance of the River Lee, don’t for­get that the Corona Cork Film Fes­ti­val con­tin­ues un­til Sun­day and that a great many su­perb films are still to screen. Tonight, Lon­don River, the new drama by Rachid Bouchareb, di­rec­tor of Days of Glory, un­spools in the Opera House. Later in the evening, Harry Brown, a crack­ing re­venge thriller star­ring Michael Caine, will be blood­y­ing up the au­di­to­rium.

Other high­lights in­clude, on Satur­day, Sam­son and Delilah, a slice of Aus­tralian nat­u­ral­ism, and, clos­ing the fes­ti­val on Sun­day, John Hill­coat’s un­re­lent­ingly som­bre adap­ta­tion of Cor­mac McCarthy’s The Road. www.cork­film­
