MP6: On Chesil Beach

Chesil

Saw this gem yesterday with a friend and absolutely adored it! It’s the best movie I’ve seen so far on MoviePass and I was definitely jonesing for a serious drama. I loved The Seagull, also starring Saoirse Ronan, but enjoyed OCB even more. The Book Club was great fun, but it was not a serious movie. This one resonated with me. If OCB is playing anywhere near you, I highly recommend it. Don’t expect gunfights and car chases ~ this is a movie that explores the small, intricate moments that connect and break our lives.

I also watched some good previews for The King, The Cakemaker, and The Wife, which have now all moved to the top of my wanna-see list. I know I said I changed my mind about The King, but now I’ve changed it back again. Of course, I need to see Mamma Mia 2, Puzzle, The Spy Who Dumped Me, Three Identical Strangers, and A Simple FavorWhew! I hope MP stays in biz for the next couple months. It seems that if I have a little patience I can find most of the movies I want to see in Irvine.

Patience? What’s that? 😀

  2. “[T]he small, intricate moments that connect and break our lives.” That makes me want to see the movie. And cry a bit.

  4. I think Saoirse Ronan is brilliant, but I’ve heard some not so good things about this film…
