TFF2014 Day 3:"Human Capital," & "I Won't Come Back

IMAGINE reading the end of a novel first and the beginning last.

Knowing the end does not necessarily have to be a spoiler. A case in point is “Human Capital” starring Valeria Golino, Valeria Bruni-Tedeschi and Fabrizio Gifuni. It makes its international premiere today at the 13th Annual Tribeca Film Festival.

Paolo Virzì's film, based on the Stephen Amidon best-seller about an actual case, is further proof that all human life is not created equal. Someone dies but who should be/will be held accountable? Muddying the already murky waters, "Human Capital" is told from three different perspectives.

At the center of “I Won't Come Back” is an unlikely duo. A young woman (Polina Pushkaruk) and a girl (Victoria Lobacheva.) Leaving behind them painful episodes and in search of something better, they warily throw in together.

Ilmar Raag's, latest in its world premiere, is a buddy movie played out against the backdrop of an unforgiving Russian landscape. Hitchhiking adds another level of danger and derring-do.

Other films/events on today's TFF2014 schedule: “Ice Poison,” “Beneath the Harvest Sky,” “Life Partners” and “Loitering With Intent.” At the TFF2014 Drive-In is “Splash.” And also making a world premiere is “All About Ann: Governor Richards of the Lone Star State” (stay tuned for more about it ahead of its premiere on HBO on 28 April).
