Film Review: Life Itself

Rating:

Written and directed by Dan Fogelman, Life Itself sees a young New York couple (Oscar Isaac and Olivia Wilde) go from college romance to marriage and parenthood, as the unexpected twists of their journey create reverberations that echo over continents and lifetimes. A multi-generational saga set in New York and Carmona, Spain – focusing on Vincent (Antonio Banderas), Javier (Sergio Peris-Mencheta), Isabel (Laia Costa) and Rodrigo (Alex Monner) – the film is a celebration of the human condition laced with humour, poignancy and love.

Film Review: Bird Box

Rating:

Directed by Susanne Bier and based on the 2014 novel of the same name by Josh Malerman, Bird Box sees an ominous unseen presence spread across the world, as it drives most of society to commit suicide. Pregnant Malorie (Sandra Bullock) finds safety with others – including Tom (Trevante Rhodes), Douglas (John Malkovich), Greg (BD Wong), Cheryl (Jacki Weaver), and Olympia (Danielle Macdonald).
