White Awake by Daniel Hill, Free for CAPC Members
White Awake brings us back again and again, gently but inexorably, to the truths that we’re so unwilling to face, steadily prying our hands from our eyes.
Wade and Kevin play catch-up this episode, reviewing two foreign releases from earlier in the year. Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne’s procedural The Unknown Girl, about a young doctor playing detective in order to make up for a serious mistake, is first up. Will this film join the ranks of The Kid with a Bike; Two Days, One Night; and L’Enfant as one of the Dardennes’ finest? The guys then turn their attention to the latest family drama from Hirokazu Kore-eda, After the Storm.
