On screen this week: 'Another Year,' 'Company Men,' 'No Strings Attached'
Here's what Post critics had to say about this week's releases:
Another Year (PG-13) "As a double portrait of loneliness and intimacy, "Another Year" allows viewers to occupy both psychic spaces, nesting into the warm comforts of a long-lived-in home and then, on a dime, seeing it through the searching eyes of the marginalized figures that, over the course of 11 films, Leigh has so often championed." -- Ann Hornaday
The Company Men (R) "Writer-director John Wells uses the timely big-picture scenario to dive into the details with a trio of character studies, chronicling how the pressures of downsizing affect three men and their families." -- Stephanie Merry
The Way Back (PG-13) "An uplifting, complicated work of art from a director whose ability to tell intimate stories on a big historical canvas is unmatched in Hollywood." -- Dan Kois
Kalamity (R) "More skillfully directed than written, "Kalamity" is competent yet never startling, either artistically or viscerally." -- Mark Jenkins
No Strings Attached (R) "[Natalie Portman] sells the material, projecting an intelligence that makes us mostly buy some of the 'Three's Company'-style shenanigans that dominate the proceedings." -- Jen Chaney
