AT THE MOVIES #714                   2017 – THE WHOLE STORY

Simon Morris looks back on 2017 – the year of two Star Wars films, two Lego films and two films mostly about Dunkirk.   It was also a year that finally paid a little more than lip-service to the idea of inclusiveness.

One of biggest films of the year was the revival of an old TV favourite – though this Wonder Woman took place during World War One.

 Race relations in America were back on the agenda – but no-one was expecting the comedy horror-film Get out

And this year marked one of the biggest years for New Zealand films – more titles than ever.  Like the delightful documentary No ordinary Sheila.
