The Long Ranger – The Social Network’s (2010) Armie Hammer stars as the titular man of the law, accompanied by native American compadre Tonto (Johnny Depp). Difficult to see how this will play out in this country as Westerns are a very American genre, but reviews have so far been mostly negative and it hasn’t struck a big chord with the public stateside. The official site is here, the film will be showing all over the UK.

Looking for Hortense – French drama with Kristin Scott Thomas attempting to persuade her husband to get his civil servant father to intervene in the case of an illegal immigrant who is due to be expelled.
