Movie of the Week – 20-11-19

The big release of the week is obviously Frozen 2, but unless you’re a pre-teen girl you’re probably not getting that excited about it?

A Dog Called Money is also released this week! I was looking forward to anything about the great PJ Harvey, but sadly it seems to have missed the mark! The Amazing Johnathan Documentary is the story of a stage magician with a twist. Otherwise there’s Harriet and the Blue Story.

Really, it was impossible to ignore La Belle Epoque, a dreamy French film about a man visiting his own past! There’s more than a whiff of Charlie Kaufman about this one, and what’s not to love about that!
