1.- The Power of the Dog :

In 1920s Montana, a misanthropic rancher [ Benedict Cumberbatch ] meets a reedy, dreamy teenager [ Kodi Smit McPhee ] who arouses his contempt - and more.

Jane Campion's gorgeous, sinewy western, based on Thomas Savage's 1967 novel, is a movie as big as the open sky - but also one where emotions are distinctly visible, as fine and sharp as a blade of grass.

2.- The Souvenir Part II :

In English filmmaker Joanna Hogg's piercingly wistful semiautobiographical film, a young student in 1980s London [ Honor Swinton Byrne ], in a subtle, captivating performance ] tries to make sense of a hearbreaking personal tragedy as she completes her graduate film.

With that seemingly simple story, Hogg captures a thousand facets of what it's like to be young person eager to make a mark on the world - while also needing desperately to make sense of it all.

3.- The Disciple 

A singer with great drive and discipline [played, with searching openness, by Aditya Modak] strives to make a life for himself in the rarefied and decidedly unlucrative world of Indian classical music - only to be forced to recognize he's missing the essential spark of genius.

Director Chaitanya Tamhane's luminous, quietly affecting film examines what it means to pursue a dream of art so feverishly that living in the real world takes a backseat.
