A charming, touching, absolutely delightful comedy-drama with a terrific Maggie Smith performance — and an equally fine turn from Alex Jennings.

A big screen adaptation of writer Alan Bennett’s iconic and celebrated memoir, directed by long-standing Bennett collaborator Nicholas Hytner.

The film tells the true story of the relationship between Alan Bennett and the singular Miss Shepherd, a woman of uncertain origins who ‘temporarily’ parked her van in Bennett’s London driveway and proceeded to live there for 15 years. Their unique story is funny, poignant and life-affirming. 

Maggie Smith was nominated for a BAFTA for Leading Actress, and a Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy.

A feel-good Cold War melodrama, Bridge of Spies is an absorbing true-life espionage tale very smoothly handled by old pros, Steven Spielburg, Tom Hanks and Britain’s own Mark Rylance, in his Oscar winning performance. 
 
You go into the film expecting a political drama about the cold war, and while indeed it is that, you may not be expecting to have so much fun, for Bridge of Spies is very humorous. The Coen brothers writing a movie Steven Spielberg would direct just sounds like a winning combination and it really is. Sealing the deal, are great performances by Tom Hanks and Mark Rylance.

I’ll See You in My Dreams would be worth watching even if Blythe Danner’s central performance was all it had going for it, but this thoughtful drama satisfies on multiple levels. It is a vibrant, funny, and heartfelt film, a widow and former songstress discovers that life can begin anew at any age. With the support of three loyal girlfriends (June Squibb, Rhea Perlman, and Mary Kay Place), Carol (Blythe Danner) decides to embrace the world, embarking on an unlikely friendship with her pool maintenance man (Martin Starr), pursuing a new love interest (Sam Elliott), and reconnecting with her daughter (Malin Akerman).
 
It gets an outstanding 93% on the Rotten Tomatoes Film review site.

Nominated for Best Film at this years Acadamy Awards, Carol is a truly striking cinematic achievement, artfully exploring themes that resonate still with powerful force today.

Shaped by Todd Haynes’ deft direction and powered by a strong cast led by Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara, Carol lives up to its groundbreaking source material.

In this adaptation of the novel “The Price of Salt” by Patricia Highsmith, Therese (Rooney Mara), a young department-store clerk in 1950s Manhattan, meets Carol (Cate Blanchett), a beautiful older woman stuck in a depressing marriage of convenience. As their bond deepens and they become romantically involved, Carol finds the strength to leave her husband (Kyle Chandler). Unfortunately, her spouse starts to raise questions about her fitness as a mother when he realizes that Carol’s relationships with her best friend Abby (Sarah Paulson) and Therese are more than just friendships.
