Consensus Comparison: Beloved Sisters January 10, 2015

I’m pleasantly surprised to see we have a strong lineup of movies for this January weekend. There’s a lot that sounds promising.

This week includes two films from three directors who have gained U.S. distribution for the first time: Beloved Sisters, by German TV veteran Dominik Graf; and La última película, co-directed by Filipino prodigy Raya Martin with the editor of Canada’s Cinema Scope, Mark Peranson. This week also brings the feature debut from American filmmaker Paul Harrill.
