In new drama/biography The Dig, Carey Mulligan is a wealthy widow who hires an amateur archaeologist (Ralph Fiennes) to excavate the burial mounds on her estate, when they make a historic discovery, all while WWII is looming.
Directed by Simon Stone; additional key cast includes Lily James and Johnny Flynn.
I’m not particularly into archeology but the cast is good; James (My favourite Cinderella (2015) and Mulligan who’s simply great in everything.
Ken Stott, Ben Chaplin, Monica Dolan, Arsher Ali, Joe Hurst, Chris Wilson, Eileen Davies, Grant Crookes, Jane Fowler, James Dryden and Ellie Piercy also star.
Directed and co-written by Paul Dano, Wildlife, set in 1960s Montana is the story of a sixteen year-old boy who witnesses his parents’ marriage falling apart after his mother finds another man.
The Excellent cast includes Jake Gyllenhaal, Carey Mulligan, Bill Camp, Ed Oxenbould…
I’m always happy to see Gyllenhaal on a cast list; so much so in fact that I was a little disappointed to not hear his voice at all in this trailer. Nevertheless, this looks pretty good and Mulligan is great.
I of course couldn’t help but think of Revolutionary Road (2008) as this trailer played.Blame the general look, feel and arguments.
Garrett Hedlund, Carey Mulligan, Mary J. Blige and Jason Mitchell are the stars of director, Dee Rees’s latest, Mudbound. Hedlund and Mitchell play two men who are back home from World War II to work on a farm in rural Mississippi. The men struggle to deal with racism and adjusting to life after war…
My guess would be that PTSD is more or less the same for war veterans now – as it was back then. I can’t wait to find out in this movie. The beautiful friendship and how Rees handles the challenges both men face are additional reasons I’ll be watching. Also, Garrett Hedlund starring in a promising movie… I’ve looked forward to this day. I really have. I’ve also been hearing the name ‘Dee Rees’ for a few weeks now. It’s time I found out why.
Lastly, Carey Mulligan is back! Yeah! – for she’s one of my favourites.
