Black Sea

Kevin Macdonald has tested his visionary skills in a variety of genres, from The Last King of Scotland and State of Play to Marley, the documentary dedicated to the legendary Reggae performer, but in each case he brings a gritty sense of character and place that is second to none. So Black Sea arrives with real tension and anticipation. The story revolves around a submarine captain (Jude Law) who, eager to please his former bosses, signs on for a assignment with questionable backers involving a search mission in the Black Sea for a submarine suspected to be filled with lost gold. With strong support likely from Scoot McNairy and Ben Mendelsohn, expect Black Sea to probe unfathomable depths. (Opens Friday at Esquire Theatre) (R) Not screened in time for review
