Now that the buzz of the Golden Globes is over and we’ve finished worshiping Meryl Streep’s life-time acceptance speech; we can settle in to get ready for the next night of all nights, The Oscars.
Rumors are buzzing about which films will make this year’s Oscar nominations and if the Golden Globes are anything to go by you don’t want to miss this summer’s must see films including La La Land, Jackie and Lion; all showing this month at Dendy Portside. With something for everyone, these summer flicks will have you laughing, crying and dreaming in the cinemas.
La La Land tugs on the nostalgia of old Hollywood movies whilst at the same time making you reflect inward on your own life journey. If a singing romantic comedy set in Los Angles the city of dreams isn’t making you go HELL YEAH, then maybe the combo of the ever so delicious Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling returning together on the big screen will get you across the line. Did I mention it stars Ryan Gosling? #megababe
Opening last week at Dendy Portside is Oscar Winner Natalie Portman’s latest film Jackie. As per usual, Portman smashes it as Jackie Kennedy in a haunting and intimate portrayal of one of histories greatest style icons and favourite first ladies. Even if you’re not really into historical films it is worth going just for all that oh-so-darling fashion!
For a simultaneously sombre yet uplifting film experience make sure you don’t miss the upcoming movie Lion. Starring Australian favourite and Oscar Winning Nicole Kidman and Slumdog Millionaire’s Dev Patel as the leads. Based on true events this harrowing and beautiful film will fill you with a renewed sense of hope, human connection and the infinite power of Google.
