BFI LONDON FILM FESTIVAL
54th BFI London film Festival announced its full line up of screenings today. There is literally tons of great films but i've never been brilliant at just picking out the ones to watch! After a little pondering here a few of my top picks and simplified plot lines....
The focus is not on the story line, but more the unravelling of characters. Set in a crumbling lonely hotel on the devonshire coast, Carol explores through the eyes of the hotel maid a story of wry humour, drama and people. A brilliant cast, simple story line and beautifully located this film looks like a winner...i hope im right!
Directed by Carol Morley starring Maxine Peake, Marjorie Yates, Joe Dempsie.
Never Let me Go
Although i can't stand Keira Knightly and the endless films with long shots of her bloody pout!(note picture again!!!) i am a huge fan of Kazuo Ishiguro's novels and stories and have been looking forward to this. Its a beautiful tale of friendship and childhood memories. I do recommend you read the book first though!
Few others to check out....
WEST IS WEST
LITTLE WHITE LIES
THE SLEEPING BEAUTY
ITS A KIND OF FUNNY STORY
BASICALLY there are loads - if your unsure what to see - see their top picks, go with the category you like the best (i love the French films and new British cinema) and steer clear of any films that may be coming to the cinema anyway!
