Outsiders abound in this week’s new movie releases, including The Shape of Water and The Other Side of Hope
Matthew Lickona 3 p.m., Dec. 8
Multi-character Irish stew, heavy on the working-class and criminal-class elements. It boasts, if that's the word, an antsy camera, an anemic image, a gaudy narrative, impenetrable accents, and across-the-board competent performances (Colin Farrell, Colm Meaney, Cillian Murphy, Shirley Henderson). Kelly Macdonald supplements competence with comeliness. Directed by John Crowley. 2004.
