Kathy Kay reviews the newly released independent films

Why not start off December with some major counter programming with a titch of juxtaposition thrown in for good measure.  For your does of dealing with loneliness catch Things to Come with the compelling Isabelle Huppert and Hello, My Name is Doris with the perky Sally Field. Both actors pull off major coups and take control of their roles that go beyond the stereotypical – not what I was expecting.

And it seems music is in the air.

There is Oasis: Supersonic for those who love this British band’s music you’ll also get a great look at their cheeky ways and madness. Also up, The Tales of Hoffman, a sumptuous version by The Royal Opera And if you are not into introspection this month and want a whole lot of family fun then know that Singa-longa Sound of Music is making a return to The Vic – ‘doe a dear, a female dear, ray a drop of….’ – oh you know.
