Hotel Artemis

A secret hospital exclusively for criminals. What could go wrong?

Hotel Artemis is a cyberpunk thriller film set in 2028 about an agoraphobic nurse (Jodie Foster) and her complicated business: running a criminals-only, luxury hospital in the abandoned hotel. Two brothers get involved in a botched bank heist where one gets shot. Waikiki (Sterling K. Brown) takes his brother, Honolulu (Brian Tyree Henry), to Hotel Artemis for treatment, but something very valuable is taken during the heist and the owner comes to claim it back.

Bearing in mind that this is Foster’s first feature film in close to half a decade, she pulls off the role of the seemingly organised nurse who’s deathly afraid of going outside. Writer and director Drew Pierce set the story to have many twists and executed them brilliantly, as he did with Iron Man 3. The film features four actors who played roles in the Marvel Comic Universe: Sterling K. Brown (The Black Panther), Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy), Kenneth Choi (Captain America: The First Avenger), and Jeffrey Goldblum (Thor Ragnarok). – Bryan Turner

* Hotel Artemis is available on DVD from most entertainment retail outlets. It is supplied by Ster Kinekor Home Entertainment.

Table Manners reminded me that when one loses everything, finding hope is the best thing one can do. The film shows how healthy relationships and support helps one get through tough times. For Megan, the housewife and main character of the film, the path to understanding begins with realising that she is enough and all she needs is her family, food and love. Life’s 3 courses made easy.

The film also shows how one can use technology therapeutically. When Megan starts to post her meals on her blog, it provides her with a platform to showcase her passion for food. This, in combination with her support network, helps her process the events that happen around her.

SAFTA Award-winning writer Nkuli Sibeko has crafted a brilliant story about how Megan copes with hardship, and about the importance of a support network, whether it be physical or virtual. Director Leli Maki has represented this emotive story in ways that feel raw and very real. The movie is a must-see for South Africans. – Bryan Turner

Table Manners is distributed by Ster-Kinekor Home Entertainment.
