Picturehouse Entertainment has exclusively released the trailer for Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne’s gripping drama ‘Tori and Lokita.’
A young boy (Tori) and an adolescent girl (Lokita) who have travelled alone from Africa to Belgium, pit their invincible friendship against the difficult conditions of their exile.
The film is a story of a beautiful and unfailing friendship amidst the struggle for survival. The young friends help each other navigate the Belgian immigration system and a criminal underworld, paying smugglers, finding jobs on the black market and sending money to their families. The plot is set within the framework of a thriller, the suspense pulling ever tighter and more intense.
Winner of the special 75th-anniversary prize at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, the film stars first-time actors Pablo Schils and Joely Mbundu in profoundly moving performances as two young migrants from Africa.
The film is to be released exclusively in cinemas on 2 December 2022. Here’s the trailer.

Anna and Adam, a young Parisian couple with Jewish origins, are about to travel to Poland for the first time. They are just married and technically speaking this will be their honeymoon. They will attend a ceremony in memory of the Jewish community in the village of Adam’s grandfather, which was destroyed 75 years ago. Adam is not really enthusiastic, but sees it as an occasion to spend some quality time with his wife, away from their baby boy. Anna, on the other hand, is both extremely anxious and overly excited about the trip to her grandmother’s country. She is hoping to reconnect with her roots and finally discover more about her own family’s history, which was always a mystery…
The trailer for Greta might make you rethink ever being kind to a stranger in New York City again. It follows the young Frances, played by Chloë Grace Moretz, who finds a lost purse on the subway and, instead of heeding the many MTA announcements that implore anyone in this situation to tell a police officer or an MTA employee, goes to this perfect stranger’s house (!!!!) to return it. The bag’s owner, Greta, played by Isabelle Huppert, is a seemingly lonely older woman who soon entices Frances into a close friendship that escalates quickly into full stalking and lots of broken dishes and probably murder. While you shouldn’t let this scare you away from enjoying New York City’s crumbling public transit, let this be a reminder that we do have procedures in place for abandoned bags on the subway: If you see something, say something.
