Set in a former mining village in Wales, the acclaimed documentary DARK HORSE is the inspirational true story of a group of friends from a working men's club who decide to take on the elite 'sport of kings' and breed themselves a racehorse. Raised on a slagheap allotment, their foal grows into an unlikely champion, beating the finest thoroughbreds in the land, before suffering a near fatal accident. Nursed back to health by the love of his owners - for whom he's become a source of inspiration and hope - he makes a remarkable recovery, returning to the track for a heart-stopping comeback.
Sweet without being cloying, crowd-pleasing without being obviously manipulative, this is how this kind of tale ought to be told. See it now before Hollywood decides to remake it. Saying more would ruin the story, which has more hurdles and switchbacks than a steeplechase. Oh, just try to resist this one!
Three twenty-something sisters - Sachi, Yoshino and Chika - live together in a large old house in the seaside town of Kamakura. When they learn of their estranged father's death, they decide to travel to the countryside for his funeral. There they meet their shy teenage half-sister Suzu for the first time and, bonding quickly, invite her to live with them. Suzu eagerly agrees, and begins a new life with her older sisters.
Amidst the many and varied colors of Kamakura's four seasons, the four sisters cause each other emotional anguish, and support each other through life's trials, developing a very special bond in the process. Set against the summer ocean sparkling with sunlight, radiant autumn foliage, a tunnel of gorgeous yet impermanent cherry blossom trees, hydrangeas damp from the rainy season, and brilliant fireworks heralding the arrival of another summer, their moving and deeply relatable story depicts the irreplaceable moments that form a true family.
Kore-eda is one of the most optimistic and humanist filmmakers working today and OUR LITTLE SISTER practices the same virtue as its characters, realizing that life is lived in the small moments as well as the great ones, and that being present in your own life is the greatest gift of all. Rarely has a film more eloquently captured the universality of human experience. It's a movie that, by its serene final scene, changes its viewer. You leave happier, honored to have been, for two hours, part of this family.
John Carpenter's 1978 tour de force, perhaps the most widely imitated film of the 70s. Scary, suspenseful, and viscerally thrilling, this terrifying and ruthless classic became a major influence on the modern horror genre, building its tension and constant sense of menace to a nerve-wracking degree. An unparalleled classic of the most horrific kind.
