We didn’t see as many films in September as usual, but that’s not to say there wasn’t some excellent ones hidden in there. Here’s our three favourites!
3. 45 Years
The stunning ‘45 Years‘ presents a happy elderly couple who receive a piece of news that forces them to reevaluate their relationship. Phenomenal lead performances from Tom Courtenay and Charlotte Rampling bring this superbly written drama to life.
An Estonian anti-war parable, ‘Tangerines‘ is infused with an immense sense of tragedy from the outset as a couple of men stay behind in their village to package and sell tangerines as war wages around them. A powerful and moving tale.
1. Me and Earl and the Dying Girl
A film to make you laugh and cry, ‘Me and Earl and the Dying Girl‘ rises above other coming of age films with an affecting story and excellent direction to tell a winningly unique story.
