Shirley is a new biography / thriller about renowned horror writer Shirley Jackson.
Starring Elisabeth Moss, Michael Stuhlbarg and Logan Lerman, the story centres around the source of inspiration for Jackson’s next book; a young couple that Jackson and her husband invite into their home.
Directed by Josephine Decker; additional key cast includes Odessa Young and Steve Vinovich.
I’m watching because it’s Moss, Lerman, plus it’s a biography so I’m definitely expecting the truth to be stranger than fiction.
Ryan Spahn, Molly Fahey, Adelind Horan, Emily Decker, Ava Langford, Edward O’Blenis and Thomas Racek also star.
Lonely Elisa (Sally Hawkins) works in a hidden high-security government laboratory and is trapped in a life of silence and isolation. Her life is changed forever when she and co-worker Zelda (Octavia Spencer) discover a secret classified experiment.
Also starring Michael Shannon, Michael Stuhlbarg and Doug Jones, The Shape Of Water is an other-worldly fairy tale set against the backdrop of Cold War era America circa 1963…
Director Guillermo del Toro is all the reason I need to watch this one but I’ll add the cast and the intriguing ‘secret experiment’ to the list.
For some reason, when I read the words ‘high-security government laboratory’ and ‘secret classified experiment,’ Captain America – The First Avenger (2011) came to mind. Anyone else? Just me? Ok.
Exploring the life and music of celebrated jazz musician,Miles Davis; Miles Ahead is directed by and stars Don Cheadle…
I’m really liking the approach taken with this trailer, the style, editing and pace is very engaging. It also looks like Mr. Davis had quite the sense of humour. Something that must have been fun to be around. Except of course, if you’ve somehow wronged him in any way. Bring on the good, good music.
