Episode 446 of 725 episodes

Long before director Cary Fukunaga made a name for himself with 'Jane Eyre' and HBO's 'True Detective,' he began work on a film about child soldiers in Africa. More than a decade later, 'Beasts of No Nation' is out on Netflix. Then, David Edelstein reviews 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens.' Also, Andrew Haigh's new film '45 Years' is about a married couple whose relationship is thrown into crisis just before their 45th anniversary party. Haigh also directed 'Weekend' and is the executive producer of the HBO series 'Looking.'
