    Venice Review: Laurent Cantet’s ‘Return To Ithaca’ A Mild But Insightful Look At Cuba's Castro Generation

    A noble, though not entirely successful attempt to glimpse behind the veil of a society that if not quite closed, is at least shuttered to outsiders, Laurent Cantet’s talky “Return to Ithaca” is a film whose educational value outweighs its dramatic heft. And for many viewers, that will be off-puttin...

    TIFF Capsule Review: 'Foxfire: Confessions of a Girl Gang'

    The latest film from French auteur Laurent Cantet (the Palme d’Or-winning “The Class”) is set in an impeccably evoked small town in the U.S. of the 1950s, but the story set there involving the titular girl gang, which clocks in at a hefty 143 minutes, is dramatically repetitive and somewhat inert. For his adaptation of the Joyce Carol Oates novel, Cantet decided to work again with young, non-professional actors as in “The Class,” but to diminishing returns here. His lead, Raven Adamson, who plays the most daring of the girls and their de-facto leader, Legs, is appropriately spunky, but she’s surrounded b...
