LFF 2015 Previews Part ii:
The Easy Picks
Not stand out gala screenings but we reckon these are no-brainers anyway.
Youth (Paolo Sorrentino)
it's not exaggeration to say that La Grande Bellezza was one of our favourite movies of 2013 and it's one we keep returning to, so the trailer for this easily fast tracked this to being one of our most anticipated movies of the Festival. Sorrentino has an astonishing ability to marry breathtaking images, awe inspiring sound and a wonderful script into a pure experience. He also has Michael Cane, Rachael Weisz and Harvey Keitel.....

Adapted from Emma Donoghue's bestseller by the author and starring the awesome Brie Larson (Short Term 12), this looks tense...
