Great Expectations (Grandes esperanzas)

Standfirst: 

Laura Stephens catches a preview of the latest adaptation of Dickens’ classic novel

Marsh country, Kent. An oppressive grey sky casts a dullness over the watery cattle-filled landscape. A young boy, aged 11 or so, runs along the riverside path and into a cemetery, coming to rest at his parents’ grave. A dirty, long-haired, bearded man shackled with jangling chains creeps up on the youngster and threatens to kill him if he doesn’t do as he’s told.

Gambit (Un plan perfecto)

Standfirst: 

Laura Stephens previews the Coen Brothers’ latest movie, released tomorrow, Fri, 15 Feb

Hollywood remakes of 1960s heist films aren’t uncommon―think The Italian Job, Ocean’s Eleven and The Thomas Crown Affair. The idea is that they should enhance a much-loved classic with something new and modern, be it in the script or the special effects.
