AT THE MOVIES # 730 MORE THAN EXPECTED
Simon Morris reviews three films that walk the fine line between what audiences say they want and the boringly predictable.
Tag is a yet another comedy about childhood friends staying together – in this case the true story of several middle-aged men who play Tag once a year. Stars Jon Hamm, Isla Fisher and Jeremy Renner.
From France, Double lover is a cryptic thriller about twins, doubles and delusion. Directed by Francois Ozon (Potiche, Frantz).
And another French film, C’est la vie is about an ornate society wedding constantly on the verge of disaster. Directed by Olivier Nakache and Eric Toledano (The Intouchables).
