Tribeca Film Festival: Sunday's Illness Movie Review

Tribeca Film Festival: Sunday's Illness Movie Review
Sunday Will Never Be the Same
A young lady walks uphill in a forest on a cold, dank day. We don't know who she is or where she is going. When she reaches a large, odd rock formation, she peers into it. Cut to a grandest of estates, where the immaculately dressed Anabel (Susi Sánchez) walks on the marbled floor. Anabel is the picture of filthy-rich upper-class. She almost takes a tumble, signifying that maybe everything isn't as perfect as it might appear. The illusion of perfection has taken a hit.

The young lady is Chiara (Bárbara Lennie) and we soon find out why she appeared in the first scene. Anabel and her husband Bernabé (Miguel Ángel Solá) are philanthropists who are hosting a charity event in their home. Chiara is a waitress at the event and it turns out that she is the long ago abandoned daughter of Anabel.

Anabel and her people are worried about why Chiara is there, and the following day the two women sit down with Anabel's lawyers to find out what Chiara wants. They offer her oodles of money to disappear, but Chiara isn't interested in the money. She wants to spend 10 days alone with her mother at Chiara's house. She will then agree to renounce any claims to her mother's money. Despite the fears of the attorneys, Anabel agrees.

The two ladies go back to the house they once shared as a family. It's a nice enough chalet near the Spanish border that is far less flashy than Anabel's current house. Anabel as braced herself for an onslaught of questions and abuse from her daughter. She receives neither. Rather, Chiara mostly keeps to herself, sometimes even leaving her mother home alone while she spends the night, elsewhere. This behavior further flusters Anabel.

It's only near the end that the game is revealed and it's different in tone than you might expect. What makes it all work quite well, are the performances by the two leads and the assured direction of Ramón Salazar. The last major scene is a bit questionable, but everything that preceded it makes it somewhat believable. "Sunday's Illness" is a vibrantly healthy couple of hours.

Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) Review

A mid-range phone with triple rear cameras is a rare thing, especially at under £300 but the Galaxy A7 isn't an instant winner. Find out why in our full review.
Should I Buy The Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018)? The Galaxy A7 is a decent choice for a mid-range phone if you're looking to spend less than £300. Highlights include an excellent screen, nice design and cameras you'd wouldn't expect to find.

Huawei Mate 20 X Review

The Huawei Mate 20 X is an obscenely large smartphone but it has many of the features of the Mate 20 Pro for less. Here’s our full review of the huge premium slab
Should I Buy The Huawei Mate 20 X?
With a bigger screen, bigger battery and smaller notch than the Mate 20 Pro, the Huawei Mate 20 X also has the same camera set up and adds a headphone jack. If you want the most screen possible, it might be for you. 
You lose the curved display, wireless charging, full water resistance and secure Face ID but for many that won’t matter if a huge display, outstanding camera and great performance are top of your list. If you want a normal size phone, get the Mate 20 Pro.

Samsung Galaxy S9 vs Samsung Galaxy S10e

Samsung's Galaxy S range has been updated and here we compare the S10e - the new 'lite' model - to last years' Galaxy S9 to help you decide which phone is best for you.
Should I Buy The Samsung Galaxy S10e Or Samsung Galaxy S9?
The S10e could be the sleeper hit of this year. It doesn’t have the embedded fingerprint sensor of the S10 and S10 Plus or their triple cameras, but it comes with the same processors, new screen design, ultra-wide camera, and all in a compact and comfortable format with a smaller price-tag.
That being said, the S9 is still an excellent device, and its new, lower price makes it a definite bargain.
