Movie Reviews: 20TH CENTURY WOMEN AND HOUNDS OF LOVE
Each week 2SER’s own Michael Jones swings by to help you decide what new movies are worth watching – and what’s worth giving a miss.
This week, 20th Century Women, directed by Mike Mills brings the 21st Century back to the free spirit of 1979. Mills captures a series of vignettes following the upbringing of teenager Jamie (Lucas Jade Zumann), his mother, Dorothea Fields ( Annette Bening) and the other women who raise him.
On a darker note, ‘Hounds of Love’ is the new Australian kidnapping-drama that seems more tortuous to the audience rather than on screen. There was an excellent performance by all three cast members and director Ben Young successfully created an intensive and oppressive feeling. ( So this is probably not any kind of ‘date-night’ material.)
