Movie 1: Seberg
This intriguing film is based on the American born actress Jean Seberg with residency in Paris and her first film Saint Joan in 1957. But the core of the story is based on her support of the Black Panther Party in the late 1960’s.
The acting is excellent, the story ranges from intriguing to excessive FBI surveillance. Lots of twists and turns and unexpected drama make this well worth while.
Movie 2: Emma.
This period novel set in 1815 by Jane Austin is both visually stunning and needlessly annoying at the same time. It’s set in England during the Georgian/Regency era.
On the down side Emma’s perpetual snobbery is unnecessary and often hurtful. It is difficult to see how such behavior would be acceptable today. The script is an odd mixture of tangents and diversions. It’s a shame because the film is beautifully produced.
Movie 3: Beanpole
