Stan & Ollie
Synopsis (provided by IMDb.com): Laurel and Hardy, the world’s most famous comedy duo, attempt to reignite their film careers as they embark on what becomes their swan song – a grueling theatre tour of post-war Britain.
My rating: 9/10
Notes: This film completely flew under the radar and I have no idea why! John C. Reilly and Steve Coogan’s performances were fantastic. They had fantastic chemistry. Also, I loved the back-and-forth between their wives, Ida (Nina Arianda) and Lucille (Shirley Henderson). This film had a lot of heart and it’s definitely one of my favorite films I’ve seen this year.
Synopsis (provided by IMDb.com): After a daughter witnesses her father having an affair, she begins a chain reaction that could tear her family apart.
My rating: 8.5/10
Notes: This was a wonderful film! It had beautiful cinematography, and such a tragic story. Mozelle (Debbi Morgan) easily became one of my favorite characters. It perfectly showed the butterfly effect and how one’s decisions ripple out and affect others in its path. I definitely recommend Eve’s Bayou!
Synopsis (provided by IMDb.com): In 1885 New Mexico, a frontier medicine woman forms an uneasy alliance with her estranged father when her daughter is kidnapped by an Apache brujo.
My rating: 8/10
Notes: I love a good western and The Missing is definitely a great one. I loved Cate Blanchett’s performance, and Tommy Lee Jones, as always, was wonderful. It was very intense and stressful. The storyline was very reminiscent of Bone Tomahawk. If you’re a fan of westerns, I think this one should be watched at least once!
