THE BATTLE OF THE SEXES

THE BATTLE OF THE SEXES – Directed by Jonathon Dayton (LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE). Starring Emma Stone, Steve Carell, Bill Pullman, Andrea Riseborough, Austin Stowell, Sarah Silverman, Alan Cumming.

This true, throwback tale from 1973 is amazingly well-suited for our times and perfectly timed for our nation -right now– and needs to be told. 29-year-old Billie Jean King (Stone) is at the top of her game as the world’s #1 female tennis player and […]

KINGSMAN: THE GOLDEN CIRCLE

KINGSMAN: THE GOLDEN CIRCLE

Director: Matthew Vaughan, Cast: Taron Egerton, Julianne Moore, Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Colin Firth, Jeff Bridges. Classified MA 15+

The sequel to 2014’s Kingsman: The Secret Service, Kingsman: Golden Circle is an action/spy/comedy film that borders on the edge of farcical. At over 2 hours long, I’ve heard this likened to watching a kid in a toystore… race in, grab everything and fall down in exhaustion. It’s got thrills, spills […]

VICTORIA & ABDUL  

 

VICTORIA & ABDUL  Director: Stephen Frears (Philomena, The Queen, Dangerous Liasions, High Fidelity), starring Judy Dench, Ali Fazal, Olivia Williams, Adeel Ahktar, Eddie Izzard, Simon Callow. 

This film surprised and delighted me.

KILLING GROUND

KILLING GROUNDCast: Aaron Pedersen, Ian Meadows, Harriet Dyer, Director: Damien Power

2017/AUST/90min/Classified MA

Killing Ground starts out almost as a cliche…it’s New Year’s eve and a young couple decide to go camping. They find a remote spot, pitch their tent and then things go downhill from there.

What sets this apart is a very cleverly constructed narrative using different timeframes. Another family has also pitched their tent and it is their fate that plays […]
