Jessica Brown-Findlay is the winsome heroine in the 1916 portion of the story, and it’s nice to see Eva Marie Saint in a lovely cameo, but I shudder to think what Valentine’s date night will be like for couples who choose to see "Winter’s Tale."

Sometimes one can admire a film without truly liking it; that’s how I feel about the ambitious British remake of Brighton Rock. Graham Greene’s 1938 novel, first filmed in the late 1940s, has been cleverly reworked to take place in 1964, at the time of the “mods and rockers” riots in Brighton, signifying a time of change in England. That is just one of many clever moves by writer-director Rowan Joffe, who is able to explore some of the seamier aspects of the novel that censorship (and matters of taste) made impossible in 1947.
