AT THE MOVIES #808 GETTING THE TIMING RIGHT
Simon Morris sympathises with films that miss the mood of the times, and welcomes three films that defy time and trends – a middle-aged romance, a travel documentary and a Kiwi crime comedy.
23 walks follows the romance of Dave Johns (I Daniel Blake) and Alison Steadman (Gavin and Stacey) through their dogs’ exercise.
Romantic Road tells the story of eccentric travellers Rupert and Jan Grey as they drive across the North of India in an old Rolls Royce. Executive Producer, Sharon Stone (Basic Instinct)
And the second Kiwi comedy in two weeks – crime-goes-wrong comedy Lowdown dirty criminals. Directed by Paul Murphy (Second hand wedding) and starring James Rolleston (Boy), Rebecca Gibney (Packed to the Rafters) and Robbie Magasiva (Sione’s wedding).
