It’s July so it’s officially Summer and we are also halfway through the year! Here are my top picks for films coming out this month.
The Beguiled – July 14th
Sofia Coppola’s latest film is a star-studded affair with Hollywood heavyweights such as Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, Colin Farrell and Elle Fanning. The film is set during the American Civil War at an all Girl’s Boarding School. From the trailer, it looks like things go down hill pretty quickly and become all a little crazy and disturbing. As a fan of Coppola’s work, there was never a doubt in my mind that I wouldn’t be excited to see her next film. Also, something else of note is that Coppola won the Best Director Award for this film at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival.
Dunkirk – July 21st
In my opinion, every Great Director has made a war movie. Kubrick did Full Metal Jacket, Francis Ford Coppola and Apocalypse Now, Terrence Mallick Thin Red Line and Steven Speilberg’s Saving Private Ryan..the list could go on. Now it’s Nolan’s turn and from the trailer, it looks like Dunkirk is going to be quite a harrowing but beautifully shot (all on film rather than digital) entry into War cinema. And now to lower the tone Tom Hardy makes quite the dashing pilot 😉
