Written / directed by Melissa Miller Costanzo, All These Small Moments tells the story of a teenage boy’s tumultuous adolescence and how it’s further complicated after he becomes infatuated with a woman he sees on the bus.
Molly Ringwald, Jemima Kirke, Harley Quinn Smith and Brendan Meyer are among the key cast…
It’s the ever intriguing dynamics of the dysfunctional family and the consequences for the children caught in the middle – this is the main reason for my interest in this movie.
Additional cast includes Brian d’Arcy James, Roscoe Orman, David Joseph Craig, Salena Qureshi and Jazzy Williams.
Thomas Jane, Molly Parker and Neal McDonough are the stars of 1922, another Stephen King book-to-movie adaptation. Set in 1922, Jane plays a simple yet proud rancher who conspires to murder his wife for financial gain and convinces his teenage son to participate…
I want to watch this one, especially to see the teenage son’s emotional journey. All I have to do before then is get over my intense dislike of the vilest of rodents; particularly since you would have noticed, they feature quite prominently. If they weren’t already enough put me on edge, the music in this trailer also plays its part.
Directed by Zak Hilditch; Kaitlyn Bernard, Dylan Schmid, Nikolai Witschl and Roan Curtis also star.
Directed and co-written by Tom McCarthy, Spotlight, simply and effectively tells the true story of the Boston Globe’s uncovering of a huge child molestation scandal within the local Catholic Archdiocese. This is a moving story that deals with the abuse of societies most vulnerable and one that rightly shook the entire Catholic Church to its core.
The main focus of McCarthy’s movie is the work of the Globe’s Spotlight team and the people they encounter as a result. It’s through their hard work that we get to learn about what happened once they dedicated themselves to the child molestation case; the obstacles they encountered and what it took to get the truth to print. All of this comes together nicely to create a good mix of tense, suspenseful and dramatic moments.
I’m sure I’m not alone in thinking that Journalists as a group can be quite the irritant at the best of times. But then I encounter a bunch as passionate and dedicated to a worthy cause as the Boston Globe’s Spotlight team and I’m reminded afresh that the heart of the journalist is almost always in the right place.
Being a winner of Best Picture at the 2016 Academy Awards is one reason I had to watch Spotlight. The others include the important story and the excellent cast attached. There’s Stanley Tucci, Rachel McAdams, Michael Keaton, John Slattery and of course, Mark Ruffalo, an actor who always seems to make great choices. – To put it another way, Spotlight is worthy of your attention. Watch it because it’s good.
