Small Crimes (M18)
Starring Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Molly Parker
Directed by EL Katz
Vacillating between a brooding thriller and a black comedy, this uneven film stars Game of Thrones’ Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as an ex-cop who has trouble keeping his nose clean after serving a six-year sentence.
There are some touching moments where the ex-jailbird tries to reconnect with his estranged family (Robert Forster and Jacki Weaver as his parents), but the circumstances surrounding his predicament are convoluted and confusing. (**1/2)
