You can fool some people some of the time, but that's not enough

The Brothers Bloom (12A)

Rian Johnson's conmen drama starts off very jauntily as the tale of two brothers, one named Stephen (Mark Ruffalo), the other – bafflingly, given the title – named Bloom (Adrien Brody), both clad in the dark suits, white shirts and hats of the silent-comedy era.

Rian Johnson: How I went from Brick to Brothers Bloom

Californian writer and film director Rian Johnson achieved critical acclaim in 2005 for a low budget neo-noir murder mystery movie inspired by Dashiell Hammett detective novels called ‘Brick.’ His second film, ‘Brothers Bloom,’ which hits cinemas in the UK tomorrow, is an intense departure from the edginess and careful stylisation of Johnson’s debut. It is instead a light-hearted conman movie, filled with slapstick capers and cons within cons, which might miss the mark for early converts to Johnson’s initial Wes Anderson-alike style, but which possesses a kooky, if self-aware, charm.

Agora (12A)

Hypatia of Alexandria was a historical figure, a neoplatonist philosopher of the fourth century who was torn apart by a Christian mob because of her supposed influence on the local Roman governor at a time of religious conflict.
