New drama/thriller The Secrets We Keep is about a young woman’s revenge for the heinous war crimes she believes her neighbour committed against her 15 years ago.

Set in post-WWII America and co-witten/directed by Yuval Adler; Noomi Rapace, Chris Messina, Joel Kinnaman and Amy Seimetz star.

The 40s/50s aesthetic is calling to me. Mostly though, I’m intrigued by the dynamic between Rapace and Messina’s characters. Particularly as the latter tries to decide how best to proceed after just finding out what his wife is capable of.

Lucy Faust, Kadrolsha Ona Carole, Victoria Hill, David Maldonado, Jeff Pope, Ritchie Montgomery, Ed Amatrudo and Frank Monteleone also star.

The Secrets We Keep Release Dates: September 16th, 2020 (US)…

Happy Film Loving

Ben Affleck is director, producer and star of Live By Night, a new crime drama about the dealings of a group of people involved in organised crime during the United States prohibition era. Based on the novel by Dennis Lehane; Zoe Saldana, Scott Eastwood, Elle Fanning and Chris Messina are just some of the talented cast…

Johnny Depp’s Public Enemies (2009) came to mind as I watched this trailer. Which will be the better movie, I wonder…

Live By Night Release Dates: January 13th 2017 (US & UK)…

Happy Film Loving 🙂

JULIE & JULIA (2009): In The Name Of Passion And A Love Of Food

When you sit down to watch Julie and Julia, I highly recommend having a few of your favourite foods with you. I say this because you will find yourself with at least one or two serious  cravings.

Based on the life of American Chef, Julia Child, and Writer Julie Powell, meet two ladies with a shared passion for food, cooking and feeding the people they love.

Besides the joy of a well executed drama about two women who quite literally come alive whilst indulging in their favourite pass time, Julie & Julia will likely inspire you to dedicate more time pursuing your own passions.

To look at it another way, should the task of silencing doubters be a  hobby of yours, or one you wouldn’t mind taking up, then look no further to see it done with such admirable aplomb.

If you’re still unsure, I have two words. Meryl Streep.

Happy Julie & Julia 🙂
