The Dressmaker (Nov 2015) - it was good. Kate's accent is excellent. Good story. Beautifully shot and costumed, funny and quirky yet appropriately depressing in parts (it is an Australian film afterall). The only thing is the age thing; liam hemsworth is clearly too young to be playing a person that kate's character went to school with and since that it kind of key to the story it interferes with the viewing experience. 3.5 stars
Bridge of Spies (2015) directed by Steven Spielberg written by Ethan and Joel Coen. During the Cold War, the Soviet Union captures U.S. pilot Francis Gary Powers after shooting down his U-2 spy plane. With Tom Hanks and Mark Rylance (Wolf Hall).
