Film This Weekend: 10 Cloverfield Lane
Posted in: FILM THIS WEEKEND
This weekend two surprisingly good films open at the UK box office. While “10 Cloverfield Lane” is a gripping thriller, “High Rise” starring the suave Tom Hiddleston is a beautifully shot, surreal adaptation of a classic novel.
A psychological thriller that is a welcome break from the usual fare, 10 Cloverfield Lane takes keeps the audience guessing with its twists and turns.
The film stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Michelle, a young woman who finds herself confined in a safe house along with two men after surviving a horrific accident. Her housemates claim to be her savior and believe that the outside world is uninhabitable in the wake of a chemical attack and that leaving the house might spell doom. Unsure of what to believe Michelle figures she needs to escape at any cost.
Debutante director, Dan Trachtenberg manages to deliver an intense film which is compact in its execution and lures the viewers in with its exceptional sense of insecurity. It plays on the Hitchcock style delivery, peppered with terror and tension. It quite qualifies as the surprise film of the month, and a cult offering worth checking out right after the awards season.
The film also stars John Goodman and John Gallagher Jr.
So, that’s what we have happening at the box office, folks! The two very different films might appeal to different sections of the audience, but are fine in their own rights, nonetheless. We are looking forward to a good time at the cinemas this weekend!
