Coming Soon – Magic in the Moonlight

Coming to cinema’s in September, Woody Allen brings us his latest romantic comedy Magic in the Moonlight starring the fantastic Colin Firth and Emma Stone.

We have the latest trailer and synopsis for you to check out and enjoy.

Set in the 1920s on the opulent Riviera in the south of France, Woody Allen’s MAGIC IN THE MOONLIGHT is a romantic comedy about a master magician (Colin Firth) trying to expose a psychic medium (Emma Stone) as a fake.

Chinese conjuror Wei Ling Soo is the most celebrated magician of his age, but few know that he is the stage persona of Stanley Crawford (Firth), a grouchy and arrogant Englishman with a sky-high opinion of himself and an aversion to phony spiritualists’ claims that they can perform real magic. Persuaded by his life-long friend, Howard Burkan (Simon McBurney), Stanley goes on a mission to the Côte d’Azur mansion of the Catledge family: mother Grace (Jacki Weaver), son Brice (Hamish Linklater), and daughter Caroline (Erica Leerhsen). He presents himself as a businessman named Stanley Taplinger in order to debunk the alluring young clairvoyant Sophie Baker (Stone) who is staying there with her mother (Marcia Gay Harden). Sophie arrived at the Catledge villa at the invitation of Grace, who is convinced that Sophie can help her contact her late husband, and once there, attracted the attention of Brice, who has fallen for her head over heels.

From his very first meeting with Sophie, Stanley dismisses her as an insignificant pip-squeak who he can unmask in no time, scoffing at the family’s gullibility. To his great surprise and discomfort, however, Sophie accomplishes numerous feats of mind-reading and other supernatural deeds that defy all rational explanation, leaving him dumbfounded. Before long, Stanley confesses to his beloved Aunt Vanessa (Eileen Atkins) that he has begun to wonder whether Sophie’s powers could actually be real. If they were to be true, Stanley realizes that anything might be possible, even good, and his entire belief system would come crashing down.

What follows is a series of events that are magical in every sense of the word and send the characters reeling. In the end, the biggest trick MAGIC IN THE MOONLIGHT plays is the one that fools us all.

The film comes alive in cinema’s on September 19th and we should be reviewing it on the Monday Movie Show.

Coming Soon: Breakout

With a screenplay co-written by Suzanne Collins, author of The Hunger Games, dramatic chase thriller Breakout is the story of a young mother who must resort to radical measures to protect her children. Forced to flee with her two young children, recently divorced mother Jocelyn (Alexandra Breckenridge; TV’s American Horror Story) must keep her family safe from her dangerous ex-husband (Billy Burke; The Twilight Saga), whilst also trying to avoid the law. With the police chasing her on charges of kidnapping, Jocelyn’s only hope is an underground network whose purpose is to aid people in her situation. Putting her trust in Jim (Ray Liotta; Goodfellas) and his mysterious contacts may be Jocelyn’s only hope of freeing her family and putting a dark chapter of their lives behind them.
