This film starring Dakota Fanning, Jennifer Connelly and Ewan McGregor looks interesting. It’s set in 1968 as a hardworking man, who’s been a staple in his quaint community for years, watches his seemingly perfect middle class life fall apart as his daughter’s new radical political affiliation threatens to destroy their family.
There are tons of “best of” lists out there, but this one from Cleveland.com about the 40 best TV seasons since 2000 is pretty good. They nailed it with some great selections like Season 4 of “The Wire” as the top season overall (sorry to spoil the suspense!). Fans will quibble about the best season from that amazing series, but Season 4 is certainly worthy of that honor.
They also focused on some great opening seasons from shows that eventually lost their way, like “Lost,” “House of Cards,” “Boardwalk Empire” and “True Blood.” They could have added season one of “Sons of Anarchy” to that list.
Check out the list and you’ll get some great binge-watching ideas.
One of the most highly anticipated new movies of the year is Allied. Set in North Africa during WWII, this romantic period piece is based on the true story of a fighter in the French resistance, played by actress Marion Cotillard, who meets and falls in love with a British intelligence officer, played by actor Brad Pitt. The two meet while she is behind enemy lines, and are later reunited in London. The couple struggle with their feelings for one another, and what their relationship means, as the war intensifies.
Here’s a great shot of one of the aliens from the film resting between takes.
