Film show: 'Atlantique' weaves a tale of love, family obligation and supernatural intrigue

Film critic Lisa Nesselson speaks to Haxie Meyers-Belkin about this week's new releases, including "Atlantique" by young Franco-Senegalese star Mati Diop, a story of thwarted young love and the lure of elsewhere - with a dash of magic thrown in for good measure. But first, they discuss "Alice and the Mayor", a touching look into the dysfunctional workings of the corridors of power at the Lyon town hall.


We end with a look at the Dinard Film Festival in Brittany, where "The Keeper" tells the unlikely story of a German WWII prisoner of war in England who beats the odds to become a celebrated goalie for Manchester City.
