East End Film Festival: Bruno and Earlene Go to Vegas

Bruno & Earlene Go to Vegas focuses primarily on two misguided individuals colliding together in the most unusual of circumstances having been spurned in the past for two wildly varying reasons.

Me and You Review

Bernardo Bertolucci returned to Cannes Film Festival last year with his first film since 2003's The Dreamers; Me and You. The film is a relatively low-key affair, set in few locations and apart from a few scenes at the start and at the end, is pretty much a two hander between half siblings, Olivia (Tea Falco) and Lorenzo (Jacopo Olmo Antinori). This may be a far cry from the 1972 Last Tango in Paris, but there is more to this heartfelt reflection than initially meets the eye.

Director Dominga Sotomayor’s debut film tells the story of a family on a road trip in rural Chile, on their way to check out a plot of land that belongs to the father.
