Movie 1: 80 for Brady
This is a heartwarming story about the enduring friendship of four friends in or near their 80’s, who happen to be diehard New England Patriots fans and want to attend the 2017 Super Bowl. While not great film making, this movie is a lot of fun.
Movie 2: Close
This is a stunningly poignant story about friendship and innocent intimacy between two thirteen year old boys. It won the second most prestigious award at the Cannes Film Festival as well as numerous Grand Prize awards at Gay Film Festivals around the world. It’s nominated for Best Foreign Language film at this year’s Academy Awards. It truly is special. From Belgium, in French and some Dutch, with English subtitles. In limited theatres now, soon to be streaming on MUBI.
Movie 3: One Fine Morning
This is a French drama that tugs at your heart. A single mother tries to take care of her eight year old daughter, a father with a neurodegenerative disease and herself, all while falling in love with a married friend. Lea Seydoux (from 007 No Time to Die) turns in a wonderful performance. French with English subtitles.
