MARY POPPINS RETURNS (2018): New Trailer From Emily Blunt, Meryl Streep, Colin Firth, Lin-Manuel Miranda…

Director Rob Marshall’s Mary Poppins Returns is set in 1930s depression-era London. In the follow-up to the 1964 family movie, both Jane and Michael Banks are grown up and Michael has three children. After the family suffer a terrible loss, Mary Poppins turns up to show them the joy and wonder that’s been missing from their lives.

Emily Blunt, Meryl Streep, Colin Firth, Lin-Manuel Miranda and Emily Mortimer star…

For a moment I thought this teaser trailer wasn’t going to show Blunt as Poppins at all. I’m looking forward to seeing what she does with the role. Her accent sounds a little unlike what I expected but it’s early days yet.

So far, I’m absolutely loving the coats in this trailer, especially that green beauty at 1:04!

Mary Poppins Returns Release Dates: December 21st, 2018 (UK); December 25th, 2018 (US)…

FLORENCE FOSTER JENKINS (2016): The Thing I Liked…

Florence Foster Jenkins (2016), Meryl Streep.

Florence Foster Jenkins, the story of a New York heiress who dreamed of becoming an opera singer, despite having a terrible singing voice is a movie I found to be just OK.

Starring Hugh Grant, Simon Helberg, ‘acting queen’ Meryl Streep and directed by Stephen Frears, I enjoyed the little moments of humour and I appreciated the film as a sweet story of one man’s complicated love for his wife and friend, particularly the lengths he and a number of her friends went to to ‘take care of her’.

It goes without saying that Streep performed well as Jenkins. Helberg and Grant were good too. Ordinarily, I personally can’t imagine myself gladly helping to delude a talentless person I care about into thinking that they were actually talented. Watching Florence Foster Jenkins has ensured that I’d take a little more time to consider it. Even though it all reeks heavily of the most cringe worthy moments in talent shows such as X-Factor and American Idol.

As always, watch it if you’re curious enough.

Teaser Trailer

Full Trailer

I already like the sound of this movie because it seems like an underdog story and it’s directed by Stephen Frears, the man behind The Queen (2006) and High Fidelity (1998).

‘The lady is a lesson in courage and that’s why we love her’ _A quote I love.

Hugh grant, Simon Helberg of The Big Bang Theory (CBS), Neve Gachev and Rebecca Ferguson make up some of the key supporting cast.

Florence Foster Jenkins Release Dates: May 6th, 2016 (UK); November 25th, 2016 (GER)…

IT’S COMPLICATED (2009): Good Lighthearted Fun Starring Meryl Streep & Alec Baldwin

It’s Complicated is a well cast comedy/ romance starring Alec Baldwin and Meryl Streep.

Written and directed by Nancy Meyers, the film follows a divorced couple who reignite their relationship even though one of them has remarried.

The couple’s complicated situation which also includes three grown up children presents a great opportunity for both comedy and drama; something Meyers took great advantage of – evident in the way the subject matter is handled.

For me, what makes It’s complicated work is Streep and Baldwin’s great onscreen chemistry. The supporting cast which includes Steve Martin, John Krasinski, Zoe Kazan, Lake Bell, Hunter Parrish and Caitlin FitzGerald certainly doesn’t hurt either.

I’m a big fan of Baldwin, thanks in large part to his great work as Jack Donaghy in 30 Rock. As for Meryl Streep, I feel like, to love film is to love her, so there really was no way I would have not watched the film.

Tune in for the subject matter and some good light hearted fun – should you be wanting that sort of thing.

Happy It’s Complicated 🙂

PRIME (2005): Beautiful Romance, Plus A Note To Follow Your Heart & Listen To Your Head

Starring Bryan Greenberg, Uma Thurman and Meryl Streep, Prime is ideal if you’re curious about its main subject, the relationship between a divorced woman in her late thirties and her younger 23 year-old boyfriend.

The Ben Younger written and directed film is a drama / romantic comedy that features several moments that realistically depict a romantic relationship between the two main characters

Greenberg and Thurman share great chemistry and both deliver good performances. However, Meryl Streep’s role as the long suffering Jewish mother is one of my favourite highlights.

For me, besides the beautiful romance, the film works as a reminder to always follow your heart in love and career, but do so whilst never completely ignoring your head; especially where love is concerned. The musical score is also notable.

Happy Prime 🙂
