New Releases: The Housemaid and Mumbai Diaries

Under review this week are Im Sang-soo's engaging remake of the 1960 Korean classic The Housemaid and Mumbai Diaries, Kiran Rao's ultimately mediocre, if thematically intriguing multi-character piece. Also up, a re-post of my take on Peter Weir's The Way Back, which I reviewed for Slant Magazine during the film's brief December Oscar-qualifying run and which now opens in earnest.
