Synopsis

Mr. Watts, is the last Englishman remaining in a tropical village in Bougainville during its civil war in the 1990s. He begins to teach the local children by reading them Great Expectations, by Charles Dickens. Matilda, an imaginative young girl, is transported into the story of the novel, believing that Dickens’ character Pip is her friend. Matilda’s “Pip” world is an extraordinary fusion of Dickens’ Victorian London with the environment and people she knows on the island. This wildly imaginative hybrid place is set alongside the film’s unflinching portrayal of the horrors of war. Matilda’s passion for storytelling brings terror to the village when Pip’s identity is misunderstood by the invading army. Ultimately, her courage and imagination must sustain her if she is to survive

The Theory of Everything poster
There are a ton of limited releases coming out this week, including The Theory of Everything, which many people think will be an Awards Season contender. There are also a couple of foreign-language films worth checking out, Why Don't You Play in Hell and The Way He Looks. And finally, there are a trio of documentaries, Actress, Death Metal Angola, and National Gallery. Unfortunately, there are also a lot of films earning mixed or weaker reviews, so hopefully the good films don't get squeezed out.
