When you see Kate Winslet, Jodie Foster, Christoph Waltz and John C Reilly all on the same cast list you know that this is a movie that you have got to see.
And that is exactly the line-up we have got for Roman Polanski’s latest movie Carnage – which has been well received already on the festival circuit.
A showdown between two kids about eleven, in a local playground. Swollen lips, broken teeth…
Now the parents of the ‘victim’ have invited the parents of the ‘bully’ to their apartment to sort it out.
Cordial banter gradually develops a razor-sharp edge as all four parents reveal their laughable contradictions and grotesque prejudices. None of them will escape the ensuing carnage.
Carnage is released 3rd February.
