What’s the Billboard?
The weekend comes loaded with adrenaline thanks to Bloodshoot, Vin Diesel’s new blockbuster and probably the last release of its kind that we will see in a few weeks due to the emergency unleashed by the coronavirus worldwide. The rest of the billboard offers the next few days a varied menu, below we tell you:
They against the tide (Maiden, 2018)
Address: Alex Holmes
Synopsis: Presents the story of Tracy Edwards, a 24-year-old ship cook who was the woman who led the first all-female team to take part in the 1989 Whitbread Round the World Race.
The review: “Holmes intersperses videos, photographs and coverage of the time with interviews with crew members. The story also reveals the female limitations encountered by male prejudices that underestimated them in physical abilities, including the press’s interest in asking more about private life than for competition strategies.” Read on.
Address: Ira Sachs
They star: Isabelle Huppert, Brendan Gleeson, Greg Kinnear, Marisa Tomei.
Synopsis: Three generations fight against a life-changing experience during a holiday vacation in Sintra, a historic Portuguese city known for its gardens, villas and dream palaces.
The review: “Anchored in the choral, the film makes use of a solid ensemble of actors, although they all share only a spectacular final plane that accentuates the theme of distance. Frankie gives the feeling of revealing the intimateness of each of his characters without fully exposing them, making evident the deep bond that exists between Sachs and his characters. Among them are an overwhelming Brendan Glesson and a phenomenal Marisa Tomei.” Read on.
