La La Land

Rejoice! La La Land is finally in Argentine cinemas. With 14 Oscar nominations and a record-breaking 7 Golden Globe Awards, the adorable love-story of Mia and Sebastian, played by Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling is a modern-day musically-infused version of the classic tale of struggling musician and actress trying to find fame in L.A. Director Chazelle’s nostalgic spin has transformed it into the must-see musical of the year, as two young hopefuls struggle to reconcile their ambitions with their budding romance.

LIVE BY NIGHT

Following up on from box office successes ‘Argo’, and ‘Gone Baby Gone’, Ben Affleck returns to his directing role in the highly anticipated “Live By Night” which hits theaters this week. An adaptation of Dennis Lehane’s novel of the same name, the film is set during the Prohibition-era, with Affleck himself playing Joe Coughlin, son of respected Boston police chief (Brendan Gleeson). After returning from war, a disillusioned Coughlin soon finds himself in charge of an underground gangster organization in Tampa, Florida; romancing mobsters’ girlfriends (Sienna Miller), and charming his way out of perilous situations, the film is never short of excitement. Elle Fanning, Zoe Saldana, and Chris Cooper also star in this stylishly directed thriller.

A MONSTER CALLS

Spanish director JA Bayona tells the emotional tale of young boy Conor (Lewis MacDougall) struggling to come to terms with his mother’s illness as well as fending off bullies at school. In somewhat of a role reversal, Liam Neeson plays the empathetic monster, paying nightly visits to Conor in an attempt to aid him through his anxiety; while Sigourney Weaver appears as the domineering grandma. Boasting amazing visual effects, and an heart-wrenching performance from 12 year-old MacDougall, the film explores a host of complex issues.
