Their Finest trailer

Ahead of an April 7th release date, a brand new trailer has just been released for the Lone Scherfig-helmed World War II-set romatic dramedy THEIR FINEST, having caused a serious stir at various festivals including BFI and Sundance.

Penned by Gaby Chiappe,  Their Finest is an adaptation of Lissa Evans’ Orange Prize longlisted novel of the same name, starring Gemma Arterton as Catrin Cole who finds herself hired by the British Ministry of Information as a “slop” scriptwriter charged with bringing “a woman’s touch” to morale-boosting propaganda films. Her natural flair quickly gets her noticed by dashing movie producer Buckley (Sam Claflin) whose path would never have crossed hers in peacetime. As bombs are dropping all around them, Catrin, Buckley and a colorful crew work furiously to make a film that will warm the hearts of the nation. Although Catrin’s artist husband looks down on her job, she quickly discovers there is as much camaraderie, laughter and passion behind the camera as there is onscreen.

Their Finest also stars an extensive ensemble cast including the likes of Bill Nighy, Jack Huston, Rachael Stirling, Richard E. Grant, Helen McCrory, Jeremy Irons and Eddie Marsan. The film opens in theaters this coming April 7th, 2017 and we’ll leave you with the official trailer below…

As bombs are dropping all around them, Catrin, Buckley and a colorful crew work furiously to make a film that will warm the hearts of the nation.

Review: WE GO ON is a Truly Human and Poignant Parable

we-go-on-review-shudder-horror

Do you remember what it was like to be child? The days going by with nothing but time, support and no fears. It is pleasant when you close your eyes and remember as well as create scenarios that reflect innocence that you have experienced. It’s a powerful set of moments that make you feel warm, confident and free from anything that may hurt you. In the same breath, it is the same memories and feelings that can cultivate fear, anxiety and angst with everything in the world around you. This is one of the prime themes for the film We Go On from filmmakers Jesse Holland and Andy Mitton.

TABOO BUSTERS – Films that dared go where no-one had gone before

15

Debut director Emiliano Rocha Minter’s WE ARE THE FLESH is an extraordinary and unsettling film experience about a young brother and sister roaming an apocalyptic city, who take refuge in the dilapidated lair of a strange hermit, who takes them on a sexually-charged, nightmarish journey into an other-worldy dimension. The film, just this week released by Arrow Video, is certainly not for the prudish or faint-hearted, featuring explicit sex and grotesque set pieces, building to a finale of demonically depraved proportions, making WE ARE THE FLESH extreme art cinema at its boldest and most taboo-bustingly bizarre.

REVIEW: The LEGO Batman Movie

Lego Batman Review
