FILMCLUB DVD Film of The Week: Anonymous (2011, 12)

anonymous_1-530x325

This provocative film asks the question: was Shakespeare a fraud? It’s not questioning the brilliance of the plays assigned to his name, just whether he actually wrote them.

The cheeky premise was bound to get scholars hot under the collar, and the film has been roundly denounced as inaccurate and impossible. But should that matter?

It’s well acted, absorbing, often witty and raises many questions – not least: why can’t some people deal with the fact that a “commoner” was a genius?

It’s a genuine conversation starter – so, what do you think?

Contagion (2011, 12)

Contagion-Movie-Reviews

Director: Steven Soderbergh

Cast: Laurence Fishburne, Matt Damon, Jude Law, Gwyneth Paltrow, Marion Cotillard

One touch is all it takes to cause a global pandemic in this smart yet ultra-scary thriller tracing the effects of a lethal virus.

An international traveller is the first to die, leaving behind not only a grief stricken husband but also countless other victims that she’s unwittingly infected during simple, everyday interactions.

With the numbers multiplying rapidly from London to Tokyo, experts race to control the disease and create a potential vaccine.

However, public panic and paranoia are spreading equally fast, bringing social breakdown that adds to the problems!

Very entertaining film, but we advise not to watch it if anyone in the family is suffering from a cold or has a cough!

Easter Parade (1948, U)

easter parade 4

Director: Charles Walters

Cast: Judy Garland, Fred Astaire, Ann Miller, Peter Lawford

This Irving Berlin musical features some of Hollywood’s most celebrated talents, with memorable song and dance routines aplenty.

Don Hewes (played by Fred Astaire) is a Broadway star, anxious to strike back after his partner Nadine ditches him. He discovers a bright prospect in Hannah (played by Judy Garland) and helps launch her career.

Don and Hannah have a unique chemistry on stage together and it’s clear they’re also in love with each other, but a series of misunderstandings prevents them from revealing their feelings.

This is a cheery, feel-good story from the golden age of MGM musicals.
