Filmhouse Recommends is our daily pick of three films from the 2015 Edinburgh International Film Festival that we think our audiences will particularly enjoy. Check back each day during the Festival for tomorrow's recommendations!

 

In Person: Seamus McGarvey in Conversation
with Haskell Wexler (17:30, Filmhouse 1)

With a list of iconic credits including The Loved One, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, In the Heat of the Night, The Thomas Crown Affair, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Bound for Glory, Coming Home, Matewan and Blaze - not to mention his own Medium Cool - Haskell Wexler is indisputably one of the most important cinematographers of all time. His in-person interview with EIFF patron (and fellow cinematographer) Seamus McGarvey promises to be a truly unmissable event.

The Chambermaid Lynn (18:20, Cineworld)

Lynn (in a finely-honed performance by Vicky Krieps) longs for intimacy but is afraid of human contact - but this all changes when she meets the hotel's residing dominatrix, Chiara (Lena Lauzemis), who slowly teaches Lynn to let herself get closer to people. Reminiscent of the recent The Duke of Burgundy, the film becomes a beautifully choreographed and ambiguous pas de deux between the two characters as their relationship shifts and develops.

 

Tu Dors Nicole (20:35, Cineworld)

During a particularly hot Québécoise summer, Nicole has her parents' house to herself. But the arrivals and departures of family and friends - including Nicole's persistent 10-year-old suitor, Martin, possessed of a voice beyond his years - lead to a series of quirky and oddball events in this delightful comedy, which features gently slow-burning humour, and some truly elegant black-and-white cinematography from Sara Mishara.
