‘You gotta be brave before you can be good’ – Rose (Sasha Lane) Hearts Beat Loud
Hearts Beat Loud
A gorgeous indie film about Sam (Kiersey Clemons) and Frank, her dad (Nick Offerman). Hard-working Sam will shortly be making her way to College, unaware of the fact that Frank is having to close his music shop due to financial problems. The soundtrack is beautiful, with this being a true earworm.
The Miseducation of Cameron Post
The Happy Prince
Very comfortably the most unsettling film on this list, if not of the year overall
A beautiful British movie about an 83 year old woman (played by Shelia Hancock) who sets off to rekindle lost memories of her childhood by heading to Scotland to climb a mountain. Understated brilliance.
One of the most powerful documentaries I’ve ever seen. A searingly honest and personal look at the life of one of fashion’s greatest designers. It’s discussion of mental health is emotional and truly compassionate
