Cork fest unreels over weekend
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.corkfilmfest.org
