Another keen interest of mine is film and TV, I actually studied TV and film production at university, well for a year and a half before deciding to leave for full time work. Each month I have decided to share with you films that you should watch out for! With the help of IMDB and youtube I have pulled together a list of films to watch out for in January.
Welcome to Marwen – A Steve Carell Film
A victim of a brutal attack finds a unique and beautiful therapeutic outlet to help him through his recovery process.
The Favourite – featuring Olivia Coleman, Emma Stone & Rachel Weiz
In early 18th century England, a frail Queen Anne occupies the throne and her close friend, Lady Sarah, governs the country in her stead. When a new servant, Abigail, arrives, her charm endears her to Sarah.
Colette – featuring Keira Knightly and Dominic West
Colette is pushed by her husband to write novels under his name. Upon their success, she fights to make her talents known, challenging gender norms.- A powerful film, I highly recommend checking the trailer our, I’m super excited for Colette.
The upside – featuring Brian Cranston, Kevin Hart and Nicole Kidman.
A comedic look at the relationship between a wealthy man with quadriplegia and an unemployed man with a criminal record who’s hired to help him.
Looks like a real feel good film based on a true story, the trailer shows the films has some real funny and emotional moments.
Ollie & Stan – Featuring Steve Coogan & John C Reilly.
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.
The trailer for Ollie & Stan gave me goose bumps all the way through, set to be a film not to miss!
Mary Queen of Scots – Feat Margot Robbie & Saoirse Ronan.
Mary Queen of Scots explores the turbulent life of the charismatic Mary Stuart. Queen of France at 16 and widowed at 18, Mary defies pressure to remarry. Instead, she returns to her native Scotland to reclaim her rightful throne. But Scotland and England fall under the rule of the compelling Elizabeth I. Each young Queen beholds her “sister” in fear and fascination. Rivals in power and in love, and female regents in a masculine world, the two must decide how to play the game of marriage versus independence. Determined to rule as much more than a figurehead, Mary asserts her claim to the English throne, threatening Elizabeth’s sovereignty. Betrayal, rebellion, and conspiracies within each court imperil both thrones – and change the course of history Written by Focus Features
In honesty, I’m a huge lover of the tudors but I’m not sure how i feel about this, it’s too “Hollywood” if that’s such a thing.
Second Act – featuring Jennifer Lopez & Vanessa Hudgens
A big box store worker reinvents her life and her life-story and shows Madison Avenue what street smarts can do.
Looks like a classic slap stick humour film about reinvention, doesn’t come across as a five star for me but hey it’s J Lo
A dogs way home – ft Bryce Dallas Howard, Barry Watson and Ashley Judd.
One for the family! A dog travels 400 miles in search of her owner. The trailer pulled on my heart strings!!!
