Every summer, since 2006, a slice of the Cannes film festival has parachuted into Metropolis Cinema in the form of a reprise of the Semaine de la Critique (Critics' Week or SIC) program.The 2018 Critics' Week selection was praised for having an unusual number of strong works so, over ten days, film lovers bored with the superhero flicks and sequels in the multiplexes can look forward to a rich selection of 10 features and 13 shorts.As critics have noted, the movie combines comedy, musical, social drama and issue film – and does so with stylish, heartwarming panache.Fans of American actor Paul Dano will be able to sample "Wildlife," his feature-length directorial debut. The film tells the story of a boy watching his parents' marriage fall apart after his mum meets another man.
