Movies We’re Excited About This November
There are several movies we’re looking forward to seeing during November. The box offices are premiering movies for many different age ranges. If you’re hanging out with friends or back in town for Thanksgiving, there are a couple options for everyone. Let’s take a look at some of the movies we’re most looking forward to seeing.
This drama has an all-star cast, including Nicole Kidman, Russell Crowe, and Lucas Hedges. The story follows Jared Eamons, a teenager growing up as the son of a Baptist pastor in a small town. After coming out as gay to his parents, they are distraught and must find a way to reconcile their beliefs and love for their son. As pressure around the situation mounts, Jared agrees to attend conversion therapy in order to restore peace to his family and community. While attending conversion therapy, Jared has serious quarrels with the grou’ps leader and starts off on his journey to find his voice. The film has received three nominations from the Australian Academy of Cinema and Arts, including Best Film, Best Direction, and Best Adapted Screenplay. This film is rated R.
This historical war drama follows Robert Bruce, a legendary warrior. Bruce, after earning the title of King of Scotland, loses his throne to the English. Now living in exile from his homeland, Bruce rallies a band of outlaws to fight alongside him and reclaim his position as king. The film stars Chris Pine, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and Florence Pugh. Rated R.
While the kids will beg to see this one, the truth is that I’m more excited for the new Grinch remake than any of the children. The animated remake has voice actors from some of the biggest names in Hollywood. These include Pharrell, Cameron Seely, and the lovely Rashida Jones. As far as we can tell, the story won’t deviate too much from the classic story. Yet again, the Grinch and his dog, Max, are plotting to put an end to Christmas cheer in Whoville. But the trailers reveal that there will be some new scenes that we didn’t see in the last Grinch movie. It looks like Max will play a larger, more active role as the Grinch’s sidekick. Also, the scenery of Whoville looks much more whimsical in its animated form. A great choice for the whole family. Kids will love it, and the older crowd will find it nostalgic. Rated PG.
This film follows a young mother with her boyfriend and 8-year old son as they drift from one motel to the next. The boyfriend’s alcohol problem reaches a crux that finally tears him apart from the mother and son. Now with no support system, the mother stumbles upon a mobile home community. Could this be the support system that the young mother needs to recover and raise her son well? The plot of this movie sounds gripping, but we don’t know too much about it. It has yet to be reviewed by any major critics, so we’ll just have to form our own opinions about the film when it comes out on November 16th. The cast includes Imogen Poots, Callum Turner, and Callum Keith Rennie. This movie is not yet rated.
