Anya Taylor-Joy, Bill Nighy, Miranda Hart and Josh O’Connor are the stars of the new adaptation of Jane Austen’s classic novel, Emma.

Directed by Autumn de Wilde, Emma is a satire of social class and the pain of growing up. Before finding the love that’s been there all along, young, clever, handsome and rich Emma Woodhouse (Taylor-Joy) must adventure through misguided matches and romantic missteps…

The humour, beautiful costumes, general cleverness and sunshine definitely have my attention.

Mia Goth, Callum Turner, Chloe Pirrie, Rupert Graves, Johnny Flynn, Tanya Reynolds, Amber Anderson, Jill Buchanan, Kevin Daigneault and Aisling Turner also star.

Emma Release Dates: February 14th, 2020 (UK); February 21st, 2020 (US)…

THEIR FINEST (2017): New Trailer From Sam Claflin, Gemma Aterton, Bill Nighy…

Sam Claflin, Gemma Aterton and Bill Nighy are the stars of Their Finest, a Lone Schefig directed drama / comedy / romance set during World War II. The story focuses on a British film crew tasked with making a propaganda film after the Blitzkrieg to help boost morale…

I’ll be tuning in for the comedy and to witness the extent of the sexism of those times. I’m not quite in the mood for the romance just now, no doubt that’s going to change, I’m certain of it.

Their Finest Release Dates: March 24th, 2017 (US); April 21st, 2017 (UK)…

THE SECOND BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL (2015): What Twilight Years Ought To Be Like

In the first movie, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, retired brits take residence at a hotel in India, one they thought would be quite luxurious but soon enough, they realise just how far out of reach luxury really is at the The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. Still, they decide to stick around and that’s when the fun begins.

Most of your favourite characters played by Bill Nighy, Judi Dench, Maggie Smith and Celia Imrie return in director John Madden’s sequel to the 2011 hit.

The sequel centres around young Sonny’s (Dev Patel) dream of acquiring a second hotel. As was the case in the original film, it’s the characters played by the older cast members that are the most entertaining. Particularly Muriel, portrayed by celebrated British actress, Maggie Smith.

Dev Patel’s young and enthusiastic Sonny might get a tad grating at times, but overall, like the original, The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is a touching and fun 2 hours. It also happens to be a great reminder of what getting older can and probably should be like.

Though I prefer the original film, this sequel is fun. Richard Gere and Tamsin Greig play two mysterious characters and of course, Maggie Smith remains in true scene stealing form. My favourite moment being the ‘incident with the tea’ at the very beginning.

Happy The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel 🙂
