Movie 1: Blackhat
This Netflix Drama, Action Thriller is getting a mixed bag from critics near and far. A hacked nuclear plant in Hong Kong and the Mercantile Trade Exchange in Chicago prompt the FBI to partner with China to find the hackers. It tends to bounce around a bit, but overall satisfies most viewers. We enjoyed the action and suspense. It’s rated R for violence and some language.
Movie 2: My Father’s Violin
Also a Netflix release, this Turkish film is about an orphaned girl and her violinist Uncle and the bond that heals a family loss. Beautifully filmed, produced with extraordinary results. We watched the dubbed English version.
Movie 3: Cyrano
Set in the 17th century, Cyrano is a love sick soldier/poet who spends a lifetime in love with the beautiful Roxanne. Overall the production is stunning and likely to yield numerous awards during the awards season. That said, there is sure to be more than a few surprises before the credits roll.
