Ansel Elgort, Patricia Clarkson, Matt Bomer and Suki Waterhouse are the stars of new drama / sci-fi Jonathan.

Directed by Bill Oliver, the story follows Jonathan who leaves the office everyday at noon. He gets home and goes to sleep. Each morning when Jonathan wakes up, there’s a breakfast prepared for him along with a video telling him about the second part of his day…

I rather enjoyed the mysterious nature of the above synopsis. Upon seeing the trailer, I’m definitely quite intrigued and find myself thinking of cloning as a key theme. It could also be interesting if I were wrong – especially since I do enjoy a well executed story surprise.

Douglas Hodge, Souleymane Sy Savane, Ramses Torres and Jeff Kim also star.

Jonathan Release Dates: November 16th, 2018 (US)…

THE PARTY (2017): New Trailer From Kristin Scott Thomas, Timothy Spall, Emily Mortimer, Cillian Murphy, Patricia Clarkson…

The Party is a new drama / comedy that starts as a celebration and ends with blood on the floor. The film’s very talented cast includes Kristin Scott Thomas, Timothy Spall, Emily Mortimer, Cillian Murphy, Patricia Clarkson…

Watching this rather good trailer reminded me so much of how much I love this kind of film. The kind where adults are stuck in a relatively confined space and they’re forced to resolve any issues they may have with each other, usually resulting in brilliant comic moments. In case my description doesn’t paint a clear enough picture, watch Roman Polanski’s Carnage (2011), a film with great dialogue and a truly brilliant cast, not unlike this one.

Written and directed by Sally Potter; Bruno Ganz also stars.

The Party Release Dates: October 13th, 2017 (UK)…

ONE DAY (2011): Good Story & A Beautiful Musical Score

Starring Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess, One Day is the story of Dexter and Em, a pair we first meet on the day they spend a night together on the last day of college. We then get to see them many times more on the very same day in the years that follow.

Directed by Lone Sherfig and based on the best selling novel by David Nicholls, I liked One Day because it’s a charming, well told and universal story. One of male/ female friendships, unrequited love and incredibly bad timing at its core. Anne Hathaway’s British accent is very impressive and you’ll definitely notice the film’s well chosen soundtrack and musical score.

Watch One Day because it’s good and the themes featured are really worth being exposed to. Patricia Clarkson, Rafe Spall,Tom Mison and David Ajala make up more of the talented cast. There’s also a well cast little girl we see later in the movie that looks suspiciously like a young Cara Delevigne.

Happy Film Loving 🙂
