Tom à la ferme | France| Canada
Genre
The organizers of film festival "Spektrs" are offering an exclusive chance (five screenings only!) to see the film "Tom at the Farm" by the promising director Xavier Dolan! The young Canadian director Xavier Dolan has been called both a wonder child and a terror child (enfant terrible) frequently enough – regardless of which of those is more true, the word "child" definitely applies because Dolan is only 25 years old, which is practically nothing for a director. Nevertheless, Dolan’s films could never be called childish. The psychological thriller with an American taste "Tom at the Farm" promises intrigues, tension, and provocations. Tom, a young advertising copywriter, travels to the country for a funeral. There, he's shocked to find out no one knows who he is, nor who he was to the deceased, whose brother soon sets the rules of a twisted game. In order to protect the family's name and grieving mother, Tom now has to play the peacekeeper in a household whose obscure past bodes even greater darkness for his "trip" to the farm.

Genre
Welcome to Hollywood, the place where dreamers come to dream and where the number of stars for a square meter is greater than in the night sky. But people living here do not always resemble the movie characters they so eagerly portray on the screen. In the extravagant villas in Beverly Hills you may find people with a guilty conscious and shady past, like a famous psychotherapist and star adviser, or his aging client and pretentious actress, or even a young millionaire who got to the top too fast and is now suffering from the consequences. Here you can find romantics whose dreams did not come true. In some cases the twinkle of hope is still visible in their eyes, while for others it was replaced by the darkness of desperation. Hollywood promises luck and happiness to those who are yet to come, but those who lived here for a while begin to see past the blindfold of dreams and smell the reality. They would say "Welcome to Hollywood, land of passion haunted by ghosts of the past, land of lust and blood".

Genre
Directed and produced by Tim Burton, "Big eyes" is based on the true story of Walter Keane (Christoph Waltz), who was one of the most successful painters of the 1950s and early 1960s. The artist earned staggering notoriety by revolutionizing the commercialization and accessibility of popular art with his enigmatic paintings of waifs with big eyes. The truth would eventually be discovered though: Keane's art was actually not created by him at all, but by his wife, Margaret (Amy Adams). The Keanes, it seemed, had been living a lie that had grown to gigantic proportions. "Big eyes" centers on Margaret's awakening as an artist, the phenomenal success of her paintings, and her tumultuous relationship with her husband, who was catapulted to international fame while taking credit for her work.
