83 year old Edie believes that it is never too late - packing an old camping bag, leaving her life behind and embarking on an adventure she never got to have - climbing the imposing Mount Suilven in Scotland.
A true crime movie about a crew of retired crooks who pull off a major heist in London's jewelry district. What starts off as their last criminal hurrah, quickly turns into a brutal nightmare due to greed. Based on infamous true events.
Juliet, Naked is the story of Annie (the long-suffering girlfriend of Duncan) and her unlikely transatlantic romance with once revered, now faded, singer-songwriter, Tucker Crowe, who also happens to be the subject of Duncan's musical obsession.
On the eve of retirement a middle class, judgmental snob discovers her husband has been having an affair with her best friend and is forced into exile with her bohemian sister who lives on an impoverished inner-city council estate.
What an absolutely delightful film! If you want to see a feel-good movie of note, this is a very good choice - especially if you're middle-aged! Rob Brydon was excellent as Eric, a middle-aged man who's monotonous life is falling apart, and accidentally stumbles upon a way to feel good about himself again, and to escape from reality. This new life is beautifully filmed in contrast to his ordinary existence. The film features stunning imagery during his 'escape from reality' moments - especially the underwater scenes.
This is a beautiful, funny, uplifting film that will resonate with me for years to come, and one that I'm bound to watch again and again. The film also has a great soundtrack and score. LOVED it!
