With futuristic sc-fi, British comedy horror and an LGBT coming-of-age story, October is set to be an eclectic month of cinema.
Blade Runner 2049
Thirty five years after the iconic original, Blade Runner is back! The acclaimed director Denis Villeneuve directs the much anticipated sequel to the sci-fi classic which sees Harrison Ford reprise his role as Rick Deckard.
I was lucky enough to watch horror-comedy Double Date back in June at the Edinburgh International Film Festival and it is great fun!
Check out my review here!
Timothy Spall, Emily Mortimer, Cillian Murphy, Patricia Clarkson, Bruno Ganz, Cherry Jones and Kristin Scott Thomas star in this one-location black and white British comedy. That cast alone is enough to make this worth your time.
Call me by your Name
This LGBT coming-of-age drama has been making waves on the festival circuit since it premiered at Sundance. Based on André Aciman’s novel of the same name, the movie stars Timothée Chalamet, Armie Hammer and Michael Stuhlbarg.
Director Reginald Hudin tells the true story of Marshall Thurgood, the first African-American Supreme Court Justice, zoning in one of his first cases. The movie will open this year’s Chicago International Film Festival. Keep an eye out for festival coverage set to be published towards the end of the month.
