"Just as Turner's expressive, enthralling work changed the nature of painting, Mr. Turner, anchored in the rock of Timothy Spall's astonishing, Cannes prize-winning performance, pushes hard against the strictures of conventional narrative and ends up pulling us into its world and capturing us completely." Kenneth Turran, Los Angeles Times.Eccentric British painter J.M.W.

"Why should you suffer through a 140-minute Russian film that is basically a contemporary remake of The Book of Job? Because it's a stupendous piece of work, that's why, and because it represents the kind of challenging, intimate filmmaking that transcends language and borders." Peter Travers, Rolling Stone.

A Russian fisherman fights back when a corrupt mayor tries to seize possession of his ancestral home.

140 minutes; Russian with English subtitles
