Top Films for March

mar1

It’s that time of the month again – here’s my rundown of top films to watch this month:

Chappie

I do like a sci-fi. Chappie is a droid who is programmed to think and feel for itself and must embark on a survival mission when humans try to take him down. Starring Hugh Jackman, Sigourney Weaver and Dev Patel. Released: 6th March

Still Alice

Who wouldn’t want to see this after all the awards Julianne Moore has won? We have been hearing about this drama throughout awards season and it is finally released over here. Moore plays a linguistic professor who deals with the diagnosis of early onset Alzheimer’s disease. It is beautiful and not as depressing as you would think. Review coming soon. Released: 6th March

Suite Francaise

Set during the German occupation in France, French villager Lucile (Michelle Williams) finds romance when German soldier Bruno (Matthias Schoenaerts) while she lives with her mother-in-law (Kristin Scott Thomas) awaiting the return of their husband/son. Their bond is tested when Lucile decides to help hide her pal who is wanted by the Germans. Released: 13th March

White Bird in a Blizzard

I love Shailene Woodley and I’m more excited to see this than Insurgent, her other offering this month. I wanted to see this drama at the London Film Festival but I couldn’t go, so I will definitely check it out. Woodley’s world is turned upside down when her mother disappears. Released: 6th March

The Divergent Series: Insurgent

This is the second in the Divergent franchise, which wasn’t so greatly received on its first outing but did well at the box office. Shailene Woodley returns as Tris Prior once more, a Divergent, which means she does not conform to her dystopian society’s rules. It continues from the first – with Tris and her allies on the run, trying to create a team of rebels willing to take down the evil society leaders. This was the weakest book of the trilogy and nothing in the trailer seemed familiar to me, so my hopes are very low. Released: 20th March

The Face of an Angel

I’m not gonna lie, the main reason I want to see this is because of Cara Delevingne. This is the model’s first leading acting role and I missed the chance to see it at the London Film Festival. She forms a journalist/documentary maker team with Daniel Bruhl and they chase the story of a murder and its prime suspect. It has been connected to the 2007 Meredith Kercher murder is Perugia, but director Michael Winterbottom says it isn’t true. Released: 27th

The Voices

I saw this last year at the Sundance London Film Festival and it was so, so bizarre but I loved it. Ryan Reynolds is a mentally ill factory worker who is off his medication and believes his dog and cat are talking to him. The evil cat encourages him to kill people and what ensues is a very dark, black comedy with lots of blood and laughs in equal measure. Co-starring Anna Kendrick and Gemma Arterton. Read review here. Released: 20th March
