Thursday Movie Picks is hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves. For the list of this year's themes, head over to her site and join in! This week's theme is Sundance favorites. I had to check lists of what films played at Sundance, so this is kind of a cheat. I did like a lot of films that played in the festival, but limited my choices to those I haven't used yet in a Thursday Movie Picks post. Here are my picks for the week.
Broken English - This stars Parker Posey and Melvil Paupaud, and it's a romantic comedy between two people who meet at a party in New York. I haven't seen the film lately, but I do remember liking their story a lot and wished it would have been longer. There was a side story involving Drea de Matteo (not related to the love story) that I wasn't a fan of, but overall it's a favorite of mine.
Kinky Boots - This one has Chiwetel Eljiofor and Joel Edgerton, with the latter playing a shoemaker who needs to stay in business, and finds his niche market through Eljiofor, who plays a drag queen. This is now a broadway musical, and after watching this film I am now inclined to check out the musical.
In Bruges - This is what made me notice Colin Farrell again. This has Farrell and Brendan Gleeson laying low in Bruges, waiting for the order of their boss. This was sharp and hilarious. It is definitely Farrell's best film for me.
