What is the best, little-known Clive Owen film? It's not Closer or Croupier; those highly praised films showed us that no one does compassionate, conflicted intensity better than Owen -- a quality that made him a natural for Shadow Dancer as an MI-5 agent who becomes disillusioned with his job.

James Marsh may be best known as the director of the Oscar-winning documentary Man on Wire, about Philippe Petit's tightrope walk between the Twin Towers, and Andrea Riseborough as the star who actually burnished her reputation by playing Wallis Simpson in Madonna's otherwise critically reviled W.E.

Madonna could not have had a more enthusiastic and welcoming audience for W.E. than I was when I walked into the screening room. I’m fascinated by the inexhaustible Wallis Simpson story. We may never understand the psycho-sexual-political drama that led Edward VIII to abdicate so he could marry his twice-divorced American honey, but we can be pretty sure neither one of them schemed to end up as the exiled Duke and Duchess of Windsor.
