Film of the Month – June 2016
Due to Euro 2016 and holiday’s, we’ve seen less films this month, but here are the best ones we got round to checking out….
A welcome return from Shane Black, ‘The Nice Guys‘ is a sharp and witty buddy comedy about a pair of mismatched detectives trying to solve a convoluted case in 1970s LA. Very funny with brilliant chemistry between Gosling and Crowe, this is Shane Black at his finest.
A retelling of three Italian folktales reminiscent of the Grimm Brothers, ‘Tale of Tales‘ is bold, enigmatic and visually stunning filmmaking with the performances and writing to match.
Following what can now be called the John Carney template, ‘Sing Street‘ is an unashamedly sentimental tale of a teenager in 1980s Dublin who forms a band to win a girl’s heart. Taking in key musical touchstones from the era mixed in with excellent original material, ‘Sing Street‘ is beautifully charming and it’ll leave you with a huge smile on your face. This is our film of the month.
