Top films for November

It’s the start of November which means it’s once again time to look ahead to the cinema releases I’m most excited about. We’re being well and truly spoiled this bumper month!

Brittany Runs a Marathon

I’ve been gushing about this on social media and there’s a reason why – it’s awesome! It’s so heartwarming, uplifting and motivating. It might sound like it’s just a film about an overweight girl (played by Jillian Bell) getting thinner but there’s so much more to it than that. You can read my review here. In cinemas now

The Irishman

The runtime of three and half hours doesn’t exactly thrill me but from what I hear it’s worth it. I was gutted to miss this at the London Film Festival and I can’t wait to see what everyone’s raving about. Martin Scorsese‘s crime epic stars Robert De Niro as Frank ‘The Irishman’ Sheeran, who recounts his time working as a mob hitman and his involvement in the disappearance of union leader Jimmy Hoffa (Al Pacino). Released in cinemas 8th November, on Netflix 27th November

Last Christmas

I didn’t really think the world needed a film based on Wham!’s song Last Christmas but here we are – with a Christmas romcom that looks set to rival Love Actually and The Holiday. My hopes are high! This one stars Emilia Clarke as Kate, whose life takes an unexpected turn when she meets Tom (Henry Golding). It also features the songs of Wham!/George Michael! Released 15th November

Marriage Story

If you read my Venice Film Festival review (here), you will know that I loved Marriage Story. It is a heartbreaking yet really quite funny story about the divorce of Nicole (Scarlett Johansson) and Charlie (Adam Driver). These two have never been better and will probably get awards nominations and Noah Baumbach‘s script is so well-observed and realistic. Released in cinemas 15th November, on Netflix 6th December

Frozen 2

I am huge fan of Frozen so I am thrilled to be reunited with Anna, Elsa and Olaf (Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel and Josh Gad) again and watch them go on a journey to discover the origin of Elsa’s powers. But I’m also slightly nervous that it won’t live up to expectations. I’m feeling positive about it though and very much hyped! Released 22nd November

Charlie’s Angels

This could be an absolute flop but I’m willing to check it out because I love Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott showed real promise in Aladdin and Ella Balinska seems super cool in the trailer. If it’s anything like the films starring Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore and Lucy Liu then I’ll be happy. Please be good! Released 29th November

Knives Out

Rian Johnson has created a modern, star-studded whodunnit in the vein of Agatha Christie and it is great. Private detective Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig) is hired to investigate the death of novelist Harlan Thrombey (Christopher Plummer). The cast is an embarrassment of riches, with the likes of Toni Collette, Jamie Lee Curtis, Michael Shannon and Chris Evans as potential suspects. Definitely worth checking out. You can read my review here. In cinemas 29th November
