Iris is a young woman who life it turned upside down after the death of her parents.  Now with the heavy obligation of looking after her terminally-ill brother, Iris struggles with finances and her very existence.

After a fateful meeting with her brother’s doctor, Iris is presented with an opportunity of a lifetime: attend a dinner party and compete in a contest to win the ultimate prize— full financial independence and a bump up to the top of the donor list for her dying brother.

When Iris arrives at the dinner, she meets the fellow contestants, all who seem to be just as desperate as her for fast cash.  As the meal continues, the guests start to feel uneasy about the true purpose of their gathering… which quickly turns frightening and horrific.

An interesting insight into the human condition and psyche.

Inside Out

Riley is a little girl who has to leave her beloved town and friends to move to San Francisco for her father’s new job.

As the stress of the move takes its toll on her, Riley experiences emotions she has never felt before, thanks to the little characters (her emotions) struggling to keep things together in her head.

Joy, voiced by Amy Poehler is as happy and upbeat as she sounds.  But when Sadness accidentally causes havoc at headquarters (Riley’s head), Joy and Sadness are propelled out into the unknown vortex of Riley’s brain and must find their way back before it’s too late.

The winning character that even outshone Joy’s constant ethereal glow was definitely Sadness (voiced by The Office’s Phyllis Smith).   Her pitiful loom and gloom was absolutely endearing and she is the underdog that even helps save the day.

A movie that both kids and parents will love and remember.

Trumbo

Bryan Cranston plays Dalton Trumbo, based on the famed screenwriter of the same name who was blacklisted from Hollywood due to his communist views.

With some exceptional supporting performances by Diane Lane, John Goodman and Elle Fanning, this is a story fellow screenwriters would appreciate, watching Trumbo’s strange neurotic habits to achieving the perfect script.

My Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (TV Series)

crazy-ex-girlfriend

When Rebecca moves across the country to be near her childhood sweetheart, she finds herself in the company of other eccentric characters, a bartender that pines for her, a colleague who lives vicariously through her and an emo-like neighbor who studies her.

Though her life-long crush, Josh is already in a relationship, Rebecca doesn’t let that stop her from vying for his attention.

This comedy is filled with hilarity and some pretty elaborate musical scenes in the vein of shows like ‘Glee’.

Thoroughly entertaining, with some pretty adorable characters that you will fall in love with in no time.

Cinderella (2015)

Cinderella 2015

Lily James, Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham Carter and Richard Madden star in this delightful remake of the classic fairy tale.

What makes this particular film shine (literally) is Cinderella’s beautiful blue gown (it contains over 10,000 Swarovski crystals) and the cute animation of her animal friends, namely the mice and the goose when turned into her carriage coachmen.

Cate Blanchett makes for a very fitting despicable evil stepmother and Helena Bonham Carter a very kooky fairy godmother.

Lily James and Richard Madden also score high points for making the lead characters equally empathetic.

Starring Taissa Farmiga, Malin AkermanNina Dobrev and Alexander Ludwig, ‘The Final Girls’ is a very amusing horror spoof with originality and flair.

Max (Farmiga) is a young, innocent teen who loses her wanna-be actress mother (Akerman) in a car crash.

After heavy persuasion, Max attends a special screening of an 80’s horror flick that starred her late mother.  When the cinema is accidentally set ablaze, Max and her friends escape through the cinema screen only to  be trapped within the movie itself.

With extremely funny gimmicks such as the “power of a flashback” and the never-ending repeating movie timeline, this horror-comedy is sure to entertain all.

Claire Robbins (played by Sarah Hay) is a young ballerina who moved to New York to get away from her troubled family life.

Upon being accepted into the American Ballet Company as the new “It Girl”, Claire discovers some dark truths, including that of the relentless company director Paul Grayson and her hostile roommate, Mia.

As the series unravels, we also learn about Claire’s sordid past, including a detrimental relationship with her brother while dealing with their heinous father.

‘Flesh and Bone’ goes where very few shows and movies rarely ever go and the results are spectacular.   The performances are incredibly brave and the flawed characters are so addictive to watch as they continue to spiral down their own respective dark rabbit holes.
