Directedby Haifaa Al-Mansour; Elle Fanning, Maisie Williams, Bel Powley and Douglas Booth star…
I’m in for the story of a woman who overcame and gave us an example of how to turn heartbreak into something beautiful.
Additional supporting cast includes Jack Hickey, Joanne Froggatt, Stephen Dillane, Tom Sturridge and Ben Hardy.
Sollers Point centres around Keith, a small-time drug dealer under house arrest in a community scarred by unemployment, neglect and deeply entrenched segregation. Keith must push back against his surrounding limitations to try and find a way out of his own internal prison.
Directed by Matthew Porterfield; McCaul Lombardi, Jim Belushi, Zazie Beetz, Tom Guiry and Imani Hakim star…
After watching this trailer, I’m already desperate for Keith to succeed and not become a number in the recidivism statistic. With a stable support system like he seems to have, my fingers are firmly crossed.
Assuming that Keith does succeed, what will happen with the people he’s indebted to, the ones who made sure he made it out of prison alive? I will watch for answers and because this is a trailer – and I’m quite sure, a leading role well done.
Starring Emily Blunt, co-written / directed by, and starring John Krasinski, A Quiet Placeis a scary movie I wanted to see regardless of my characteristic of being ‘easily spooked into insomnia and nightmares.’
Set during a post apocalyptic future, Blunt and Krasinski are a couple with three children. In an effort to stay alive, the family are forced to live in silence because simply not doing so will mean they’re heard and subsequently become prey for mysterious creatures that hunt by sound.
I enjoyed this movie and was shocked, moved and impressed by the story, characters, performances plus the execution of the most memorable moments. A Quiet Place did a good job of showing the audience the general cleverness one would need in order to survive in a world where sound becomes deadly.
I absolutely want to believe that I’d survive living in silence; however there may be too much about me that is loud. A surprise sneeze attack among many other things would surely mean the end of me.
Besides making me an even bigger fan of Blunt and Krasinski, A Quiet Place made meappreciate my freedom to make sound. It reminded me of the the gargantuan challenge that is parenting. It also left me feeling even more empowered and powerful as a young woman, something I wasn’t expecting.
If I had to pick one thing that I wasn’t totally in love with about this movie, it would be the jarring move from silence to a seemingly super loud sound/ musical score.
Watch it because it’s good and A Quiet Place will likely not result in a single moment of sleeplessness. It didn’t for me.. yet!
Writer / director Michael Pearce’s Beast, is a new drama about a troubled young woman named Moll. Moll finds herself pulled between the control of her oppressive family and the allure of a secretive outsider.
The cast list includes Johnny Flynn, Jessie Buckley, Geraldine James, Charley Palmer Rothwell stars…
This one is quite the intriguing trailer. I’m in for the mystery – and my guess is that she’s guilty. If you read this and you know I’m right, kindly refrain from letting me know. Thanks!
I haven’t seen Flynn in a movie since Song One (2014) with Anne Hathaway which wasn’t bad.
Kodachrome is the story of an estranged father and son who are travelling to reach a Kansas photo lab before it closes its doors for good.
Directed by Mark Raso; the film’s stars include Ed Harris, Elizabeth Olsen, Jason Sudeikis, Bruce Greenwood…
I thoroughly enjoy looking at great photography. As such, I’d definitely be more interested in this story if I knew I’d get to see all of the photos that made Harris’s character a successful photographer. Since that’s quite unlikely, I could probably settle for the promising cinematography this trailer hints at. There’s also the beautiful bass in Harris’s voice.
Dennis Haysbert, Gethin Anthony, Amanda Brugel and Humberly González also star
