The end of the year is coming closer and we all know what that means: cinema times. There’s nothing better than hiding from the cold inside a cosy cinema (Amsterdam has some amazing ones) and a good film. The film world knows exactly that this is what our plans are for the coming months and is, therefore, releasing some real blockbusters and feel good films. Here are our 5 favourites, which we’ve certainly marked on our calendars and advise you to do the same.
All the Money in the World | This film is making headlines as we speak because of the replacement of Kevin Spacey in the film but apart from that, we agree that this film deserves its publicity. What a killer cast and what a story, perfect for probably any occasion; a film date or just a family day out. When the grandson of the world’s richest man is kidnapped tension rises as family members have some very different opinions on the case.
In cinemas 5 January 2018
The Post | Steven Spielberg, he has done it all and this time he’s in for a killer cast ánd true story. The Post tells the story of The Washington Post’s first female publisher (Meryl Streep) and editor (Tom Hanks) who fight to publish the Pentagon Papers. Certainly a lot less boring than a history class.
In cinemas 19 January 2018
Battle of the Sexes | Hollywood loves to throw in some true story content but we can’t say we mind. This film tells the true story of the 1973 tennis match between world’s first successful female tennis player Billie Jean King and hustler Bobby Riggs. Some call it a feminist film but it’s just history and certainly very inspiring. Again with an amazing (and unrecognizable) cast: Emma Stone and Steve Carell.
In cinemas 24 November
Wonder | The heartbreaking story a boy who suffers from facial differences and has to go to a real school for the very first time. This kid will steal your heart straightaway but as he explains himself best: “You can’t blend in when you were born to stand out.” We believe that this film will leave you with some beautiful life lessons. As if anything else is possible with Julia Roberts as your mum.
In cinemas 1 December
Lady Bird | A young girl going on an adventure to find her ‘role in life’. We know, there are countless films like this but trust us, this one is different. We think the talented Saoirse Ronan has a lot to do with that but her difficult relationship with her mum sounds surprisingly familiar to probably all teenage selves in the world.
