January is here and so a new year has begun and with it 2017 brings us a very promising year for films, this month I’m hoping to check out a couple films that look to be awards season contenders so hopefully they will nothing less that brilliant.
Silence – January 1st
This film looks really quite amazing on all fronts, the cinematography shown in the trailer is utterly beautiful, the subject matter looks to be quite harrowing and an essential story of the persecution Japanese Christians faced after Shimabara Rebellion during a time called Kakure Kirishitan (Hidden Christians). As it’s awards season I would be very surprised not to see this film get some nominations.
La La Land – January 13th
Okay so I must admit I’m not someone that usually enjoys musicals but La La Land has won me over because it I’m intrigued about the storyline which looks to about a really beautiful love story and about two people struggling in a competitive world trying to make their dreams come true. Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling have starred in so many films together so it goes without saying that their chemistry together will be believable so I’m hoping I don’t find the musical element too jarring!!
