THE KINGS OF SUMMER

(If you want a great summer adventure)

Vincent Georgie: You can feel the innocence, the mischief, the liberating weather and the “school’s out” rebellion at play here. A winning cast, to boot.

Synopsis: Frustrated with their overbearing and dysfunctional parents, three teenagers carry out a plan to leave their families behind to build a house in the woods and live off the land, taking their destiny into their own hands.

SAFE

(If you want Julianne Moore at her most daring)

Vincent Georgie: Prior to Julianne Moore‘s breakout in 1997’s BOOGIE NIGHTS, she had cemented her reputation as an extraordinary actress willing to take on very challenging and risky roles in the best of American independent cinema. One of the hallmarks of that time period is her lead performance as a woman who progressively realizes that she is profoundly allergic to everything around her, the totality of her environment. The film is a cold one, but Moore’s performance is anxious, vulnerable, and on the brink of disaster from beginning to end. Watch it and stare at Moore for the entire run time.

Synopsis: Julianne Moore gives an astonishing performance as Carol White, a suburban housewife whose affluent environment suddenly turns against her. Safe is a bold, darkly comic, completely original drama, depicting Carol’s descent into the horrors of modern-day living.

MAN UP

(If you think all romantic comedies are terrible)

Vincent Georgie: Actually romantic. Actually comedic. Actually endearing. This one will give you hope for the whole genre, and not to mention make for a great date night.

Synopsis: Nancy is travelling across London to toast another ten years of her parents’ magical marriage. She runs into Jack who mistakes her for his blind date. Nancy decides to go with it and starts the most chaotic journey of her life.
