The boundaries of faith and sexuality are explored in Disobedience, a new drama / romance that stars Rachel Weisz, Rachel McAdams and Alessandro Nivola.

Directed and co-written by Sebastián Lelio, Weisz plays a a woman who returns to the community that shunned her for her attraction to a childhood friend…

I generally enjoy the work of the stars of this movie and I can’t wait to see everything come together well creatively. I also like that Disobedience is set in England. If I’m hearing correctly, Rachel MacAdams appears to be speaking in a British accent.

Anton Lesser, Nicholas Woodeson and Alexis Zegerman also star.

Disobedience Release Dates: April 27th, 2018 (US); August 24th, 2018 (UK)…

THE MERCY (2017): New Trailer From Colin Firth, Rachel Weisz…

The Mercy is the story of Yachtsman Donald Crowhurst, whose disastrous attempt to win the 1968 Golden Globe Race ends up with him creating an outrageous account of traveling the world alone by sea…

I’ll be watching to learn more about the kind of ‘madness’ that drives one to leave their wife and young children behind, to go a on a dangerous solo adventure with a 50/ 50 chance of survival. Particularly an adventure that doesn’t appear to be of benefit to the family left behind.

I of course also want to know about how far Crowhurst took the lies he started telling about his progress.

The Mercy Release Dates: 2017 (US); February 9th, 2018 (US)…

THE LIGHT BETWEEN OCEANS (2016): The Thing I Liked…

The Light Between Oceans is directed by Derek Cianfrance and based on M.L. Stedman’s novel about a couple raising the baby they rescued from a drifting rowing boat. The performances from Rachel Weisz, Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander are all good.

For me, The Light Between Oceans is a beautiful romance. Though definitely heartbreaking and featuring a number of morally questionable acts, the idea of the love between the lead characters as portrayed by Fassbender and Vikander is beautiful.

On account of the repercussions that resulted out of the questionable acts in this movie, by the end I was well and truly reminded of the importance of properly thinking through the options we allow ourselves to be coerced into choosing. Especially when the blindness of love and an all-consuming desperation are thrown into the mix. This, for me is a highlight of this film. I also very much enjoyed Vikander’s character’s forwardness in regards to her love life. Refreshing is one word for it.

On balance, I can’t say that I was able to enjoy The Light Between Oceans as much as I could have and that’s partly because the trailer revealed too much, which in turn contributed to the end result being quite unexciting. I suppose what I may never know is just how much more thrilling I may have found this movie had I never seen the trailer.

Watch it if you absolutely must. Just don’t misremember that I said you absolutely should.

Movies are, when done well a beautiful amalgamation of all the arts; music, photography, design, dialogue, all of it. Starring Sam Claflin, Rachel Weisz and Holliday Grainger, the trailer for My Cousin Rachel looks like a very promising cocktail of all the above. Featuring great use of Ursine Vulpine‘s cover of Chris Isaac’s ‘Wicked Game’ and imagery so engaging that I was forced to sit up and pay attention, I very badly want this movie to be good. So good that it lives up to the expectations of all those who read and loved the best-selling Daphne du Maurier novel on which it’s based. If you haven’t already seen the trailer, work your way through the following beautiful images and there it shall be at the end…

My Cousin Rachel, the latest movie from Rachel Weisz, Sam Claflin, Holliday Grainger and Iain Glen is based on the best selling novel by Daphne Du Maurier. It’s a story of a an Englishman intent on revenge on his cousin Rachel but matters get complicated as he finds himself falling under her spell…

How could I not tune in with such a reliable cast and such promising cinematography. The beautiful song in this trailer is a version of Chris Isaac’s brilliant ‘Wicked Game.’ I believe this version is by Ursine Vulpine ft Annaca. Good choice trailer maker!

COMPLETE UNKNOWN: New Trailer From Rachel Weisz, Michael Shannon, Kathy Bates

In Complete Unknown which stars Michael Shannon, Rachel Weisz and Kathy Bates, Weisz’s character is a woman who likes to regularly change her identity and start over…

Based on what I’ve seen so far, the character  played by Weisz already kind of annoys me – I’m guessing because of her perceived selfishness. Nevertheless, that doesn’t mean I don’t want to understand her.

Complete Unknown Release Dates: August 26th, 2016 (US)…

DENIAL (2016): New Trailer From Rachel Weisz & Timothy Spall

An acclaimed historian fighting in court to defend historical truth, this is the subject of director Mick Jackson’s latest film, Denial.  Based on a true story, Timothy Spall plays David Irving (a renowned holocaust denier) opposite Rachel Weisz’s Deborah E. Lipstadt…

The subject matter is certainly very interesting to me but  I’ll also watch because Rachel Weisz is yet to disappoint me. Of course, Mr Spall, Andrew Scott and Tom Wilkinson aren’t bad either. Lastly,  who doesn’t love the idea of a good courtroom drama?

Denial Release Dates: September 30th, 2016 (US); February 3rd, 2016 (UK)…

Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander’s latest movie is based on a best selling book by M.L. Stedman. Director Derek Cianfrance’s film is about a couple who raise a baby they found adrift  on a rowboat…

A heartbreaking tale and streams of tears are guaranteed. I’ll tune in anyway because of  Fassbender’s performance.

Of course it would have been great if  this trailer hadn’t given away so much already. What to do, what to do…

The Light Between Oceans Release Dates: September 2nd 2016 (US); January 6th, 2017 (UK)…
