My Brother Is An Only Child Review


Good
Scripted by Stefano Rulli and Sandro Petraglia, the duo behind 2005's commendable The Best of Youth, Italian director Daniele Luchetti's awkwardly-titled My Brother Is an Only Child starts off in a very odd place before being coaxed back to familiar environs.

Artemisia Review


OK
Truish tale of Artemisia Gentileschi, widely regarded as the first serious woman painter. Fighting discrimination and a dated morality, our heroine struggles to paintwhile society says no. There's also a romance with an older guy which leads to a rather drawn-out inquest, plus a bit of a Sylvia Plath mentality about the whole thing. Ultimately, there's not a terrible lot of insight into Artemisia, but the look into 1600s Italian mores is quite telling.
