Film: Lady Macbeth

lady_macbeth_still_1

I had such an interesting evening at the Dublin Film Festival tonight listening to William Oldroyd talk about the inspiration behind the wonderful direction and cinematography of his first feature film Lady Macbeth. The film itself is fantastic and the performances by Florence Pugh and Naomi Ackie are inspiring. On my list for this weekend? Devouring everything I can find written by Alice Birch and getting in some walks in nature…

Room. 

I was so nervous about seeing this because I loved the book so much but there was no need to worry. A fantastic adaptation so perfectly brought to screen by Lenny Abrahamson. Brie Larson breaks your heart, Jacob Tremblay puts it back together. None of it possible without the words from Emma Donoghue. This movie deserves all the attention it’s receiving, and more.

Movies. 

I recently saw both Southpaw and Man from U.N.C.L.E. 

The former is such a great individual performance from Jake Gyllenhaal. Another one to add to the long list of great films he’s been a part of recently (Nightcrawler for one). 

The latter was completely different to Kurt Sutter’s gritty boxing tale but so very enjoyable. And the clothes… 

 

I also rarely come out of a film hoping that there will be a sequel!

Next movie on the to-watch list…. Paper Towns.
