An Irish Ranger who’s been fighting for the British Army abroad abandons his post to reunite with his family. Despite experiencing the horrors of war, he’s shocked by the destruction of the Great Famine in Ireland – his homeland and the brutalisation of his people and his family.
Directed by Lance Daly; Black 47 stars Hugo Weaving, James Frecheville, Freddie Fox, Stephen Rea…
This trailer reminds me a little of Tarantino’s The Hateful 8 (2015). The story and style are why I’m interested. I’m also in for a little bit of a history lesson.
Sarah Greene, Jim Broadbent, Barry Keoghan, Moe Dunford and Ciaran Grace also star.
Starring two of my favourite British Actors, Daniel Radcliffe and James McAvoy, this version of the Frankenstein tale should be interesting. Firstly because it’s from Igor’s perspective and second, it’s set before the Frankenstein we’re most familiar with today emerges.
Without further a do…
Directed by Paul Paul McGuigan of Lucky Number Slevin (2006), (a movie I recommend), bring on November 25th.
At first, the young men of The Riot Club don’t appear too dissimilar to any gathering of adult students enjoying the freedoms synonymous with university life. That is until a fateful dinner where things take a dramatically dark and villainous turn.
This is a movie about two first-year Oxford University students and their experience as part of The Riot Club, a secret society of wealthy, elitist, hedonistic and undeniably privileged individuals.
Directed by Lone Scherfig, the film features some of the best of Britain’s young acting talent. Names that include Sam Claflin, Holliday Grainger, Douglas Booth, Max Irons, etc.
Watch it for the story, an insight into the usually inaccessible world of a very small group of highly privileged university students, the cinematography and a reminder of just how punishing naivety can be.
