Next, a proposal of the films that have been liked the most on this platform so far this year.
‘News from the big world’
This movie from Paul Greengrass was nominated for 4 awards in the last edition of the Oscars. It is starring Tom Hanks and history places us a few years after the end of the American Civil War. Veteran Captain Jefferson (Hanks) travels from city to city narrating news, speaking of stories that take place in any corner of the world. One day in Texas he meets Johanna, a ten year old girl kidnapped years ago by an Indian tribe. Your mission will consist of return her to her closest relatives.

Chronicle of the relationship between landowner Edith Pretty and Basil Brown, the archaeologist who pioneered the Sutton Hoo excavation in 1938, as the world was preparing for World War II. The best of this film are, without a doubt, the interpretations of its protagonists: Carey Mulligan and Ralph Fiennes, who are forging a friendship as the excavation work progresses. This based on real events.
‘The woman in the window’
The critics have been primed with this film of Joe Wright with script of Tracy Letts (August), unfairly in our view; in fact, it has been very well received by viewers. The woman at the window, Based on the best-seller of the same title by A. J. Finn, it’s like the original novel: an entertaining product to pass the time. It is true that he abuses renowned actors with little weight in the film: except for Amy Adams, the protagonist, actors of the stature of Gary Oldman, Julianne Moore O Jennifer Jason Leigh (unforgettable in that hit of the early 90s, Single white woman looking for …) have a very blurred role. Even so, this movie is well worth a viewing, because it is a thriller with pulse that maintains tension and for the constant winks to the great master of suspense, Alfred Hitchcock.
