Cuddle up with your sweetheart, a box of chocolate and a good film this Valentine's Day weekend. Up to Date's indie, foreign and documentary film critics have a few ideas to fill your screen.

Cynthia Haines

Son of Saul, R

  • It has been nominated for best foreign film, and I would maybe put money on it (winning). This is (the director's) first feature film, which is absolutely incredible to realize. 

45 Years, R

  • Approaching their 45th anniversary, a couple confronts a secret from their past.

Oscar Shorts: Animated, Live Action and Documentary
Steve Walker

Son of Saul, R

  • A man in a World War II death camp stays alive by working for the Nazis to steer other prisoners to the gas chambers.

45 Years, R

  • Upon the crest of their titular anniversary, Tom Courtenay and Oscar-nominated Charlotte Rampling reevaluate a seemingly-solid marriage.

Spotlight, R

  • Smart and suspenseful account of how Boston Globe reporters painstakingly uncovered the trail of pedophile priests

Our critics also recommend the Kansas City Jewish Film Festival at the Jewish Community Center White Theater in Overland Park, Kansas, Feb. 12-17.
