Based on the autobiography by twins Alex and Marcus Lewis. Tell Me Who I Am is the story of what Marcus did at 18 years of age, when he was faced with an ethical dilemma. The dilemma being whether he should tell his twin brother the horrific truth about his life after losing most of his memory in the wake of a motorcycle accident, or decide to make up a whole new idilic one.

A result of director Ed Perkins’s working with the Lewis brothers Tell Me Who I Am promises an extraordinary story of love, memory, trauma, personal responsibility…

I need to know how Marcus came to the conclusion that lying to his brother was the best option. Misguided good intentions – and perhaps guilt had a little something to do with it.

Marcus was only 18 when he told the lie, Only if he hadn’t waited decades to spill the truth. This should be interesting.

New comedy / crime / drama Judy & Punch is the latest from Mia Wasikowska, Damon Herriman and Benedict Hardie.

Written / directed by Mirrah Foulkes and set in a town called Seaside, puppeteers Judy and Punch are trying to resurrect their marionette show. The show is a hit due to Judy’s superior puppeteering, but Punch’s driving ambition and love of whisky lead to an inevitable tragedy that Judy must avenge…

A long time ago, I vaguely recall hearing more than once that the story behind Punch and Judy, the famous traditional 16th century puppet show, featuring Mr. Punch and his wife Judy is actually darker than people realise. I guess it’s time to find out precisely why.

I’m looking forward to the humour among the darkness and of course, Judy’s sweet, sweet vengeance.

Eddie Baroo, Tom Budge, Virginia Gay, Amy Christian, Kiruna Stamell, Don Bridges, Michael M. Foster and Daisy Axon also star.

Judy & Punch Release Dates: November 15th, 2019 (UK)

The Turning is  the new Floria Sigismondi directed modern retelling of Henry Jame’s The Turn Of The Screw.

Starring Mackenzie Davis , Finn Wolfhard and Brooklyn Prince, The Turning is the story of a young governess who’s hired to take care of two young children after the deaths of the children’s parents…

I want to see this one to find out just how amused I’ll be when I see that regardless of all the seemingly blatant early signs pointing to things being nowhere near right in that house, Davis’s character decides to remain.

Also, I was really quite ready for this movie to be released just in time for Halloween; but no.

Did I already say that I’m over the moon that Sam Mendes is back? He’s already directed at least two of my all time favourite movies And now a film about two young British soldiers (Dean-Charles Chapman and George McKay) tasked with a seemingly impossible mission.

Additional key cast includes Benedict Cumberbatch, Richard Madden, Mark Strong, Colin Firth, Andrew Scott…

I’m excited for this story of sibling love and a desperate race against time. I can’t wait for all the beautiful shots that are synonymous with Mendes films .

It’s highly likely I’ll be hugely moved. I mean… I may or may not have already let a few tears escape while watching this trailer.

Clint Eastwood’s latest drama Richard Jewell tells the true story of Richard Jewell, an American security guard who heroically saved thousands of lives from an exploding bomb at the 1996 Olympic games in Atlanta, USA.

Starring Paul Walter Hauser, Jon Hamm, Olivia Wilde, Sam Rockwell and Kathy Bates, Eastwood’s film is about the unjust vilification of Jewell by journalists and the press, who falsely reported that he was a terrorist…

What a wonderfully edited trailer. I remember enjoying Hauser’s work in I Tonya (2017) and it looks like he’s truly great in this movie.

Now I can’t wait to find out how things turned out for Jewell.

One more thing… YEAH! Another Eastwood movie! Just had to let that out.

Nina Arianda, Ian Gomez, Deja Dee, Randy Havens, Wayne Duvall, Beth Keener, Mike Pniewski and Mitchell Hoog also star.

Standing Up For Sunny is a comedy / drama / romance about Travis, an isolated guy with cerebral palsy who’s railroaded into helping an unassertive comedienne.

Directed by Steven Vidler, what Travis didn’t expect was to find love and acceptance through stand up comedy

This reminds me a little bit of Ode To Joy (2019). I’m therefore in for the story of acceptance, love and of course, the comedy.

Felix Williamson, Megan Smart, Kathleen O’Dwyer, Philippa Northeast, Jade Ryan, Samantha Skelton, Izaak Love, Rachael Leahcar, Dirk Nagel, Bronte Kellam-Pearson and Akram Joseph also star.
