It’s half term and the only other film on wide release contains strong language, sex and drug references, and brief nudity so you’re lucky that this is actually a fun watch that you can enjoy as well as your tiny person(s).
The Hangover Part III
Speaking of strong language, sex and drug references, and brief nudity… It says a lot about this franchise that I still can’t figure out if I’ve seen Part II or not. Something about a monkey?
Something in the Air (limited release)
French film set in the late 60s about young Europeans wanting to continue a revolution. Not the French revolution mind, you want Les Misérables for that.
The King of Marvin Gardens (limited re-release)
Jack Nicholson stars in a story of two brothers and a misjudged get-rich-quick scheme. First released in 1972.
Benjamin Britten: Peace and Conflict (limited release)
Docudrama about the schooling of English composer Benjamin Britten. Narrated by John Hurt who you last saw blowing your mind in a children’s Sci-Fi show.
The Moth Diaries (limited release)
Lily Cole stars in this British horror set in a girl’s boarding school. Girls can be horrible to each other at the best of times without a supernatural element messing with things.
Grave of the Fireflies (limited re-release)
It has been 25 years since the original release of Grave of the Fireflies, on the same day as My Neighbour Totoro, making both films the same age as me. “A tragic film covering a young boy and his little sister’s struggle to survive in Japan during World War II.”
My Neighbour Totoro (limited re-release)
It has been 25 years since the original release of My Neighbour Totoro, on the same day as Grave of the Fireflies, making both films the same age as me. “When two girls move to the country to be near their ailing mother, they have adventures with the wonderous forest spirits who live nearby.”
