I will stay here for the night ★★★★
(USA 1941) Professor of Linguistics (Gary Cooper) searches for slang experts at a newsstand, a sports auditorium, and a nightclub where he finds the swing of a gangster who uses the language fluently (Barbara Stanwyck). Howard Hawks ’screwball comedy is a balm for the film soul. (K7)

Steve Jobs ★★★★
(Britain / USA 2015) Screenwriter Aaron Sorkin and director Danny Boyle add a human twist and a lot of dialogue to the story of the controversial technology guru (Michael Fassbender). (K7)
