Hidden Figures (1169) Short URL Moonlight (763) RottenTomatoes: 7.6/10IMDB: 7.9/10Which one would you go see first? MoonlightFencesHidden FiguresVote Source: Zero Media/YouTubeWhat we knowA movie version of August Wilson’s Pulitzer-prize winning play, starring Viola Davis and Denzel Washington. Washington plays a man who appears to be honourable on the outside, but who has his dark side.What the critics say“Washington’s movie – almost music free, completely dutiful to Wilson’s work – lies somewhere between the stabs at cinema in John Wells’s August: Osage County and the full embrace of the stage that has made live-streamed plays so popular lately. (But just remember: those have intervals. Fences does not.)” – The Guardian“The acting is all superb. At the moment Troy’s selfishness is fully revealed, Viola Davis delivers a monologue of tearful, scalding, nose-running agony that shows you one woman’s entire reality breaking down.” – Variety PLANNING ON HEADING out to the cinema this weekend?There are a few new movies out, but which is a must-watch, and are there any you should avoid?We take a look.Moonlight Source: A24/YouTubeWhat we knowDirector and writer Barry Jenkins uses his own experience as a gay black man to make this film based on the play In Moonlight Black Boys Look Blue. Starring the much-touted Mahershala Ali.What the critics say“Like all great films, Moonlight is both specific and sweeping. It’s a story about identity—an intelligent, challenging work that wants viewers to reflect on assumptions they might make about the characters.” – The Atlantic“Based on the play “In Moonlight Black Boys Look Blue” by Tarell Alvin McCraney, “Moonlight” is both a disarmingly, at times almost unbearably personal film and an urgent social document, a hard look at American reality and a poem written in light, music and vivid human faces.” – New York Times 38 Comments Poll Results: What’s it rated?

An earlier film might have insisted on personifying prejudice via one or two unrepentant bad guys, but Figures emphasizes how racism can spread by the simple process of complacent people following orders.” – AV Club Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article https://jrnl.ie/3243007 Thursday 16 Feb 2017, 8:30 PMlast_img
