Top Films for May



It’s a new month, which means a whole new set of films to be excited about. Here’s what I’m looking forward to watching:

Far From the Madding Crowd

I love Carey Mulligan so naturally I’m going to see this adaptation of Thomas Hardy’s novel. She is the feisty Bathsheba who is pursued by three vastly different suitors (played by Matthias Schoenaerts, Michael Sheen and Tom Sturridge) – but who will she pick? Released: 1st May

The Age of Adaline

Blake Lively stars as Adaline in this romantic fantasy about a woman who mysteriously stops aging after she is involved in a car accident at the age of 29. She soon realises immortality is not very fun when she starts outliving her loved ones. Released: 8th May




I’m not a massive horror fan but this seems like a clever idea because it is told solely through a laptop screen. During one web chat a girl and her friends are terrorised by an online presence who claims to be the girl who killed herself last year after the group posted an online video shaming her. Freaky stuff! Released: 1st May

Top Five

I have seen this and it’s bloody hilarious. Chris Rock stars, writes and directs in this comedy about a stand-up comedian/actor who is trying to become known for serious movies without much success. I enjoyed this so much. Released: 8th May



Pitch Perfect 2

I have been excited for this sequel for AGES. Becca (Anna Kendrick), Fat Amy (Rebel Wilson) and co. are back as the Barden Bellas, who must enter into an international a capella competition after Amy ruins their reputation. It is essentially the same as the first but on a bigger scale and I am absolutely fine with that. Released: 15th May

Tomorrowland – A World Beyond

I’m really intrigued by this new Disney offering because you don’t REALLY know what Tomorrowland is about (but it is based on an area of Disneyland). The synopsis is pretty vague and all we know it is a place “somewhere in time and space” where their actions directly affect the world. It stars George Clooney and relative newcomer Britt Robertson. Released: 22nd May
