THE CHILD­HOOD OF A LEADER ★★★★

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - SEVEN DAYS | FILM -

Di­rected by Brady Cor­bet Star­ring Tom Sweet, Berenice Bejo, Liam Cun­ning­ham, Stacy Martin, Yolande Moreau, Robert Pat­tin­son, Jaques Boudet Cor­bet, an in­ter­est­ing ac­tor, makes his fea­ture de­but with a sin­gu­lar in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the early life of a fas­cist leader. Cun­ning­ham plays a US diplo­mat work­ing on the treaty ne­go­ti­a­tions fol­low­ing the se­cond World War. Bejo is his ha­rassed wife. Sweet is the young boy mak­ing their life hell. Here is a beau­ti­ful, per­plex­ing - fu­ri­ously flawed - nod to post-war Euro­pean art-house cinema that prof­its im­mea­sur­ably from a loud, an­gu­lar score by Scott Walker. Club, lim­ited re­lease, 115 min DC
