This week brings us lots of films to choose from for our weekly trip to the cinema. In fact, we might have to double up on cinema outings! Check out the latest offerings from the big screen:
This one sounds interesting – it focuses on Jonas, a young man living a very plain life in a world of conformity. When he starts spending time with The Giver, however, things get messy. The Giver holds all the memories of the community, and when Jonas discovers the truth about this communities past, Jonas realises he has to escape his world to protect himself and the people he loves most. Exciting!
Magic In The Moonlight
This is a romantic comedy (woohoo!) starring Emma Stone (even better!) and Colin Firth (ah sure he’s grand). It’s about a famous illusionist who is actually a rather unpleasant Englishman named Stanley. He goes to visit a family in the French Riviera who have been taken in by a clairvoyant Sophie (Emma Watson). One of the sons of the family wants Stanley to help prove that Sophie is a fraud, but can he do it? We’ll be the first in the queue for this one!
A Walk Among The Tombstones
Liam Neeson strikes again. Here, he plays Matt Scudder, a private investigator who is a recovering alcoholic hired by a drug kingpin to find out who kidnapped and murdered his wife. In his attempts to find the criminals, he comes close to becoming a bit of a monster himself. We imagine this is a typical Liam Neeson film, a good watch, but kind of predictable. Still, nothing wrong with a film being predictably good!
Wish I Was Here
At last, we get to see the film from Zach Braff that caused such controversy because it was crowd funded. It’s about a struggling actor who is also a father and husband trying to find himself as he home schools his kids as he can’t pay for their private education any more. We’d give anything by Zach Braff a fair chance – Scrubs entertained us for a good many years after all, so we have high hopes for this one!
