On this edition of the Cinema Clash: Five films based on true stories – and one animated dud. Tune in for the lowdown on: THE NUT JOB 2, not based on actual events as far as we can tell; THE GLASS CASTLE, a well-acted but divisive dysfunctional-family drama adapted from a best-selling memoir; WIND RIVER, a chilling but engaging crime thriller about a young woman’s death on a remote Native American reservation; THE FENCER, a Finnish feel-good sports story about the triumph of spirit over oppression in Soviet-occupied Estonia; A TAXI DRIVER, a compelling drama that follows a German journalist and a down-on-his-luck cabbie from Seoul as they venture into Gwangju, South Korea during a brutal military crackdown; and MENASHE, a Yiddish film about a hapless widower battling cultural traditions to retain custody of his son.
