New this week: On Air, Mt Zion and Step Up to the Plate.
On Air
On Air


ON AIR
French drama with Karin Viard as radio agony aunt by night, coping with personal agony by day. An occasionally eyebrow-raising character study of loneliness. 3/5

MT ZION
Creditable acting and directing debuts for Stan Walker and Tearepa Kahi respectively, but could be tighter and clearer in the telling. Watch for a showstopping moment at the end. 3/5

SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK
Bipolar son comes home; family, friends and strangers struggle to adjust. Shouty and deliberately uncomfortable. Not my favourite David O Russell. 3/5

THE MAGISTRATE
John Lithgow shines in this amusing pop-up music box of a Pinero farce. 3/5

STEP UP TO THE PLATE
Returning for a short season, Paul Lacoste’s lovely, contemplative study of chef Michel Bras passing the baton to son Sébastien. 4/5
