With such horrible weather lately, a trip to the cinema is the perfect way to get cozy while pretending to be social!
If you’re looking for a good film to settle down to this week, you’re in luck as there’s a great range of flicks to choose from.
Horror, comedy and fantasy all get a look in – here are our top picks…
Hugh Grant might be eternally typecast as the floppy-haired cheeky chappy, but he’s always a sure thing for a good rom-com. This film, about an award-winning screenwriter who is forced to take a teaching job in a small town after his 15 minutes of fame runs out, is a light-hearted comedy that won’t ask too much of you on a rainy Tuesday evening! Hugh stars along with Marisa Tomei and Allison Janney.
This Victorian-era period drama was written by Emma Thompson and stars Dakota Fanning as Effie, a young girl trying to get out of an unhappy marriage. The story of Effie Gray has been told many times in films, plays and even an opera – this modern reboot looks like a good option for a girly evening!
Susan Sarandon stars as the tough-minded detective Hazel in this mystery drama. Hazel’s one of the best in the business, but her personal life has suffered as a result. Things kick off when a series of gruesome murders happen in her small Canadian town. The complex plot sounds like it’ll make for an exciting couple of hours!
The Maze Runner
This fantasy thriller is based on the 2009 young adult book of the same name. Think Hunger Games but more terrifying! Thomas, played by Dylan O’Brien, wakes up in a post-apocalyptic world with a gang of other boys – but with no memory of how he ended up there. Expect lots of dark and chilling moments.
Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day
This is a kid’s film, no mistake about that, but the fun cast means you might get some enjoyment out of it too – no shame! Steve Carrell and Jannifer Garner star as the parents of Alexander. The little boy’s day starts off awfully, but nobody has much sympathy until their own days start to go wrong too. Don’t expect any Oscar-winning performances but there’s sure to be a few laughs!
