For the Me too movement this is a timely film and real story that reflects on the time of foxtell boss Roger Ailes sacking that brings together a great cast all around. This is a good version in cinema as to the one made for Stan with Russel Crowe which I really liked as well.
Starring Academy Award® winner Charlize Theron, Academy Award® winner Nicole Kidman, Academy Award® nominee John Lithgow and Academy Award® nominee Margot Robbie, and based on the real scandal, BOMBSHELL is a revealing look inside the most powerful and controversial media empire of all time, Fox News, and the explosive story of the women who brought down the infamous man who created it. The film is directed by Emmy® Award winner Jay Roach and written by Academy Award® winner Charles Randolph.
BOMBSHELL also stars Emmy® Award winner Kate McKinnon, Golden Globe® nominee Connie Britton, Emmy® Award winner Mark Duplass, Emmy® Award nominee Rob Delaney, Golden Globe® nominee Malcolm McDowell and Academy Award® winner Allison Janney.
Writer-director Greta Gerwig (Lady Bird) has crafted a Little Women that draws on both the classic novel and the writings of Louisa May Alcott, and unfolds as the author’s alter ego, Jo March, reflects back and forth on her fictional life. In Gerwig’s take, the beloved story of the March sisters – four young women each determined to live life on her own terms — is both timeless and timely. Portraying Jo, Meg, Amy, and Beth March, the film stars Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson, Florence Pugh, Eliza Scanlen, with Timothée Chalamet as their neighbour Laurie, Laura Dern as Marmee, and Meryl Streep as Aunt
What a cast and what a visual feast that brings to cinema which is still one of the most popular stage musicals shows in the world. Standouts are for me Dame Judy Dench, love her and she performed this many years ago and went to cat school. Rebel Wilson has great musical moments here and great lines of course plus Jennifer Hudson just blows you out with her emotion with the most famous song of the film “Memories”. I can go on as Tyler Swift who never misses a beat in anything she does looks divine as a cat and she purrs well in her cat role. The rest of the cast all so talented and fun to watch and James Corden is James Corden. For some, it may be a touch long but for anyone that loves a musical, and great film production that this has ticked all the boxes on then this is a must-see and is for all ages.
