Roll it there, Roisin; 3 must-watch movies

Sive O'Brien

JANUARY

True story

James Franco and Jonah Hill both give amazing performances is one of those on-the-edge-of-your-seat dramas with twists and turns and suspense all over the place. It’s centered around the relationship between journalist Michael Finkel and Christian Longo, an FBI Most Wanted List murderer who lived outside the US under Finkel’s name. Guaranteed to have lots o those emotional chord-striking moments. Does Jonah Hill (Finkel) find out the ‘true story’ in the end? You’ll have to watch and see.

FEBRUARY

Fifty shades of grey

Hands up who hasn’t heard of the erotic book trilogy phenomenon? Not many, we’re sure. Of course, the dirty books have been turned into a movie, but rumour has it, a more approachable, toned-down version. Ah. It hits cinemas on Valentine’s day (yes, how cheesy) and is most likely going to be one of the most watched movies of the year. Although it’s quite possibly an awkward one for a date night with someone you don’t know very well. Expect kinky stuff and lots of semi-naked Jamie Dornan. Not bad for a Friday night at the flix.

MARCH

A little Chaos

A beautifully shot, romantic drama set in the time of the French King Louis XIV’s reign in the 17th Century. If you have a taste for the dramatic and some great costumes, the drama follows Sabine (Kate Winslet), a strong-willed and talented landscape designer who is chosen to build one of the main gardens at the king’s new palace at Versailles. She challenges gender and class barriers whilst becoming romantically entangled with the artist André Le Notre (Matthias Schoenaerts). We can’t wait.
