I’ve always dreamed of how it would feel to travel through time. Naturally, About Time piqued my interest, big time! That is why I jumped at the opportunity to attend the sneak preview! The movie was directed by Richard Curtis, with four main characters: Domhnall Gleeson as Tim; Rachel McAdams as Mary; Bill Nighy as Dad; Lydia Wilson as Kit Kat; Lindsay Duncan as Mum. The story has many layers: it’s about family, insecurities, finding love. All typical in today’s world. I laughed, I cried, I fell in love with the characters and the movie and especially the music.
“Blue is the Warmest Color” directed by Abdellatif Kechiche is a very powerful, intense and highly emotional love story between two women. The movie is rated NC-17 due to the highly graphic sex scenes between the two female lovers. Lea Seydoux is Emma, who is older, and artsy. Adele Exarchopoulos is Adele, the young, beautiful 18-year-old who is trying to discover who she is. I went in to this movie with an open mind and am certainly glad I did. The movie was very emotional and the characters were so very real. A few people did leave the theatre half way into the movie. I am glad I stayed the entire three-hour runtime.
