Monday January 22th, 2018 *** Three Billboards *** Directed by Martin McDonagh*** interpreted by Frances McDormand, Woody Harrelson, Sam Rockwell

threebillboards

With  an obscure and intriguing  tittle like “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri “, directed by Martin McDonagh and with such stellar and quirky cast this is the type of film that truly inspires our curiosity… poised from the start to be an awards-season steamroller… It boasts a bevy of strong performances led by Frances McDormand, Sam Rockwell, and Woody Harrelson, and a sensational screenplay by McDonagh, who can turn profanity-laced insults into high art...Three Billboards is a film about a woman fed up with the world’s injustice in general and her own town’s specifically…something to see, think and discuss …

Phantom

Set in the glamour of 1950’s post-war London, renowned dressmaker Reynolds Woodcock (Daniel Day-Lewis) and his sister Cyril (Lesley Manville) are at the center of British fashion, dressing royalty, movie stars, heiresses, socialites, debutantes and dames with the distinct style of The House of Woodcock.

Once controlled and planned, he finds his carefully tailored life disrupted by love.

call_me_by_your_name

CALL ME BY YOUR NAME, the new film by Luca Guadagnino, is a sensual and transcendent tale of first love, based on the acclaimed novel by André Aciman. It’s the summer of 1983 in the north of Italy, and Elio Perlman (Timothée Chalamet), a precocious 17- year-old American-Italian, spends his days in his family’s 17th century villa transcribing and playing classical music, reading, and flirting with his friend Marzia (Esther Garrel). Elio enjoys a close relationship with his father (Michael Stuhlbarg), an eminent professor specializing in Greco-Roman culture, and his mother Annella (Amira Casar), a translator, who favor him with the fruits of high culture in a setting that overflows with natural delights. While Elio’s sophistication and intellectual gifts suggest he is already a fully-fledged adult, there is much that yet remains innocent and unformed about him, particularly about matters of the heart. One day, Oliver (Armie Hammer), a charming American scholar working on his doctorate, arrives as the annual summer intern tasked with helping Elio’s father. Amid the sun-drenched splendor of the setting, Elio and Oliver discover the heady beauty of awakening desire over the course of a summer that will alter their lives forever.
