Hannah Arendt was assigned by The New Yorker in 1961 to travel to Jerusalem and cover the trial of Adolph Eichmann, one of the architects of the Nazis’genocidal “Final Solution” during World War II. Following the testimony from concentration camp survivors and the pathetic self-exonerations of Eichmann, Arendt begins to formulate what would be her most lasting, and controversial, contribution to contemporary political thought: the “banality of evil”—evil not as diabolical intent but as unthinking, almost offhanded ignorance of the consequences of one’s actions.

Deep into a solo voyage in the Indian Ocean, an unnamed man (Robert Redford) wakes to find his 39-foot yacht taking on water after a collision with a shipping container left floating on the high seas. With his navigation equipment and radio disabled, the man sails unknowingly into the path of a violent storm. Despite his success in patching the breached hull, his mariner’s intuition, and a strength that belies his age, the man barely survives the tempest. Using only a sextant and nautical maps to chart his progress, he is forced to rely on ocean currents to carry him into a shipping lane in hopes of hailing a passing vessel. A gripping, visceral and powerfully moving tribute to ingenuity and resilience.

Determined to be positive despite the answers and obstacles that may lie ahead, the talkative Philomena shares stories from her past, savouring every moment on her journey to meet her child. While her quirks may test Sixmith’s patience, he will ultimately prove her biggest supporter. Stars Judi Dench and Steve Coogan.
