Version papier du livre.
Isobel Kerr , Alex Kerr. When Isobel and Alex came home from school to find their abusive father had brutally murdered their mother, their world was thrown into chaos. Plunged into a care system that neglected them, Isobel and Alex had only each other to rely on.
Isobel and Alex's mother used to do everything with them. The two end up in debt and on the road to an infamous poker game in New Orleans. Like poker? Like Bloodline? Like Reynolds? Like movies at all?
Watch this one. Mohawk Ted Geoghegan continues to carve out a career as an unpredictable genre filmmaker by taking a sharp turn from his excellent We Are Still Here to this period action-horror film set early in the 19th century, right after the end of the War of Kaniehtiio Horn stars as a Mohawk woman named Oak, who is caught between her people and the British soldiers who are killing them. She has two lovers, a Mohawk warrior and a British soldier; the former ignites the drama when he sets fire to an American encampment.
The surviving soldiers move to hunt down Oak and her people as Mohawk transforms into a chase movie, anchored by a physical performance from Horn and a captivating one from the villainous Ezra Buzzington. The comedian plays Curtis, a single father who moves to Germany with his son, Morris, played by the wonderful Markees Christmas. It also features one of the most genuine father-son relationships in years, culminating in an emotional scene between the two that will bring tears to your eyes.
The former star of Master of None and Saturday Night Live plays Emily Martin, a young woman who returns to her hometown after the death of her cat, which gives the film its title. Not only is Wells sweet and funny, she has a strong voice as a writer-director, imbuing with honesty and heart a film that could have felt like hundreds of other fest hits. She may become a major independent filmmaker.
Watch this before she does. What unfolds is an episodic look at childhood through the kids who live there. Generally, we encourage viewers to watch foreign films subtitled, but the English dub here is very engaging and includes voice work by Nick Offerman, Amy Sedaris, and Will Forte. Think of this as The Raid on Steroids. Imagine a kung-fu movie in which people have knives and axes and other sharp objects instead of just their fists of fury.
A closing chapter to an unofficial trilogy that includes Antichrist and Melancholia , this daring drama stars Charlotte Gainsbourg as a nymphomaniac, someone who requires more, and more daring, sex than the average person.

Say what you will about what too many people wrote off as an arty dirty movie, but Nymphomaniac is one of the most ambitious movies you could watch on Netflix. The two play a couple whose therapist Ted Danson suggests they take a retreat to find themselves as partners again. Trust us on this one — this is a smart, well-acted character piece that merges relationship drama with sci-fi concepts in a way that makes both genres feel fresh again.
Outside In The consistent Lynn Shelton co-wrote this drama with star Jay Duplass, and it marks the best work to date of either one. The Transparent star plays Chris, a year-old just released from prison after spending more than half his life behind bars. This is a nuanced, graceful character piece about two people with very different life experiences who find themselves drawn to each other. Porto The wonderful Anton Yelchin was building a career that felt as if it could go on for decades when he passed away at far too young an age.
His death gives his role in this, one of his final films, added poignancy, although Porto would be a strong drama even if he were still with us.

The unforgettable result plays out more like a memory than a traditional narrative. The irascible Kevin Corrigan stars as Danny, one of those schlubs who suddenly finds himself wealthy and has no idea what to do with his money or his time. Why not get a personal trainer? This decision brings him into the lives of a local gym owner named Trevor Guy Pearce and his best employee, Kat Cobie Smulders. Roll Red Roll In August , a teenage girl in Steubenville, Ohio, was raped and then photographed by a group of teenage boys.
The case came to light slowly, first through social-media posts by their peers and then through some investigative journalism by bloggers. It turned out that some of the criminals were members of the very popular local high-school football team, a circumstance that influenced the way the case was investigated and reported to the public.
There are a lot of true crime docs on Netflix but few that look at the impact of crime on an entire city the way this one attempts to. Slow West This is not your typical Western. Kodi Smit-McPhee stars as a Scotsman who travels to the Old West to find the woman he loves but ends up crossing paths with a bounty hunter, played by the great Michael Fassbender. The pair is stalked by a much more villainous hunter named Victor, played by the also great Ben Mendelsohn.

Sep 23, Cassandra rated it liked it. I loved this book! I thought it was going to focus more on the dad and his influence. That being said this was very gripping.

Jan 01, Kel rated it it was ok. I feel for the people involved and admire the way they are pursuing their lives despite their tragedies but assessment of the book itself was that I found it a rather slow and boring read. I have read plenty of books of similar content and this one just did not really draw me in.

To view it, click here. All the more moving as it is a true story. Apr 08, Joss rated it it was amazing. A non-fiction heart-wrenching story of how two young children managed to survive the UK Legal system after their father murdered their mother- causing them to live as a Department of Human Services "number". I found this to be a shocking story about how the government bureaucracy treats our "system children", the gaps in foster care and the potential crisis towards support mental, emotional, financial for children in the system.
As a potential foster parent rules are ver A non-fiction heart-wrenching story of how two young children managed to survive the UK Legal system after their father murdered their mother- causing them to live as a Department of Human Services "number". As a potential foster parent rules are very different here in Australia than the UK , my heart ached for the young Isobel and Alex, especially about with the huge challenges that consistently appeared with every corner they turned. Any other person who would have experienced what they did, would surely have led to a breakdown or being "beaten" but it was inspirational to read about Isobel and Alex's ultimate triumph over everything that was sent their way- including the injustice of the prison time of their father, with their dogged determination.

I just hope with books like this, it will shed some light on what actually happens to children in the department of human services. Children are only victim of the circumstances that occurred and we adults should be doing all we can to protect, nurture and support them. In the face of adversity, the Kerr children managed to beat the expectations of the human services system and if I ever get to meet either of them, it would be an honour to shake their hand.
