Catrin Cole was a former secretary and has just been hired as a scriptwriter for propaganda films while the Blitz is going on around them in London.
Each month I have now decided to do a preview/up and coming post of the films that are going to be coming to the cinema. So here we go for April in 2017 and which films we can look to go and see, or avoid I guess. *Note this is for UK releases*
Probably not going to be the best month of the year at the cinema but I certainly have two films that I am really looking forward to. Yes, I know that does not sound like many at all but when you take a look at the better films this month has on offer then I am sure you will fully understand.
So take a look at what is coming to a cinema near you this month . . .
As you are probably already aware I totally love Bill Nighy! This character from Love Actually Billy Mack is just the best! Also hilarious that they released it probably as a song and music video! Honestly watch the film with cast commentary on its well worth it!
Feel free to judge me but I don’t really care! I certainly have some strange obsessions and fangirl moments over older men. I am hoping that with this post people will either agree, understand where I am coming from or just respect my total honesty in admitting my random obsessions. This has often resulted into buying a lot of older films and rushing out to see the latest release from that actor and generally just well loving them!
As the BFI London Film Festival starts tonight I thought it would be a good idea to put a post together to preview some of the films that will be making an appearance at the festival and the different Gala/UK Premiere’s happening over the next 11 days. It really is a fantastic event that takes over the many cinemas in Leicester Square with plenty of star acting power in attendance.
A big screen outing for the much loved 70’s TV series Dad’s Army. All about the English home guard protecting the coastlines and focused on keeping everyone safe.
Kim a former skateboarding champion is haunted by her mother’s death and while trying to help support her father takes a job as a Chalet Girl to make more money.
Sonny’s idea of the The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel has worked so well that they do not have many vacancies for rooms left, so he dreams of expanding to open a second hotel. Not everything goes to plan though and he must also try to focus on his up and coming wedding.
In 2014 I managed to go and see 15 musicals and plays on stage in both the North East (Sunderland Empire or Theatre Newcastle) as well as trips to London to see them in the West End. I also caught Monty Python and a concert of Elaine Paige. It has been an incredible year for going to see plenty of shows and live acting. I honestly didn’t realise I had seen so many until getting ready to do this blog post.
Along with seeing an absolute icon in Elaine Paige in her farewell concert, I also managed a last-minute trip to see the legend of Angela Lansbury on her return to the West End after 30 years in Blithe Spirit. But it doesn’t stop there, I got to meet one of my favourite actors Bill Nighy after the incredible Skylight and an added bonus of Carey Mulligan! What a day that was.
In the summer of 1984 the mining strikes were in full force. This film is based on the true story of a group based in London who decided that they would like to help the miners during this difficult time. They understood the clashes with police, Gays and Lesbians Support the Miners.
