NEW DRAMA SUNDAY: WW2 'COME WHAT MAY' WITH MATTHEW RHYS, 'THE HOLLARS' WITH JOHN KRASINSKI, ANNA KENDRICK, 'FIVE NIGHTS IN MAINE' WITH DIANNE WIEST, DAVID OYELOWO

  'COME WHAT MAY' 
WW2 MATTHEW RHYS DRAMA
I've a number of new drama movies to show you today, people, beginning with new World War II drama COME WHAT MAY which arrives to cinemas this September starring Matthew Rhys! 
May 1940. To escape the imminent German invasion, the inhabitants of a small village in northern France flee their homes, like so many millions of their compatriots. Max, a German boy, travels with them. His father, Hans, opposed the Nazi regime and was imprisoned in Arras for having lied about his nationality. Hans is eventually set free and sets off to find his son, accompanied by a Scottish soldier who is trying to get back home.



  'FIVE NIGHTS IN MAINE' 
DIANNE WIEST & DAVID OYELOWO
Another drama arriving to us, a bit sooner as it will grace the cinemas around you this August, FIVE NIGHTS IN MAINE boasts a cast lead by Dianne Wiest and David Oyelowo. 
The touching drama sees Oyelowo playing a young African American man, reeling from the tragic loss of his wife, who travels to rural Maine to seek answers from his estranged mother-in-law, played  by Wiest, who is herself confronting guilt and grief over her daughter's death.



  'THE HOLLARS' 
 JOHN KRASINSKI STELLAR DRAMA
The last one for today arrives to cinemas late August and it is the directorial effort of our beloved John Krasinski who also takes the lead role in THE HOLLARS as an aspiring NYC artist John Hollar who returns to his middle America hometown on the eve of his mother's brain surgery. Joined by his girlfriend, eight months pregnant with their first child, John is forced to navigate the crazy world he left behind as his dysfunctional family, high school pals, and over-eager ex flood back into his life ahead of his mother's operation.  Sharlto Copley, Anna Kendrick, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Charlie Day, Richard Jenkins and Josh Groban are just some of the well known names and faces that round up the stellar cast around Krasinski.

  1. Such a delight today Dezzy! All of these look great. And I have not seen Dianne Wiest in forever. She's an amazing actress, and of course my newest girl crush Anna Kendrick.

  4. Yay! I've been missing John Krasinski lately. Glad he's got a new one in the works, even if we'll have to put up with Kendrick too.

  5. I hate dysfunctional family stories. They make me blue. No, that's not a joke. Unfortunately, Angie relishes that kind of stuff. Must be a female thing, yes?

    No?
