AT THE MOVIES #691 – BEHIND THE BLOCKBUSTERS
Simon Morris is generally underwhelmed by the 2017 Blockbuster Season, so takes a look at some of the smaller offerings away from the multiplexes.
My Cousin Rachel is an old-fashioned gothic melodrama, written by Daphne Du Maurier, and starring Rachel Weisz and Sam Claflin.
The Beautiful Fantastic is a whimsical romance, a sort of English version of French favourite Amelie. Starring Tom Wilkinson, Andrew Scott and Jessica Brown Findlay.
And The House stars Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler as a suburban couple who start up a neighbourhood casino, with predictable results.
