Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (2019)

Director: Quentin Tarantino
Genre: Drama, Comedy | Runtime: 161 Minutes
Cast: Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie, Emile Hirsch, Margaret Qualley

A film years in the making, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is currently the penultimate movie of Quentin Tarantino’s directorial career, and certainly a worthy addition to his legendary filmography.

In the final years of Hollywood’s “Golden Age”, veteran television actor Rick Dalton and his stunt double Cliff Booth strive to achieve fame and success in the film industry. Meanwhile, Sharon Tate and Roman Polanski move in next door to Dalton and attract the attention of the Manson family.

Genre: Biography, Drama, Music | Runtime: 121 Minutes
Cast: Taron Egerton, Jamie Bell, Richard Madden, Bryce Dallas Howard

Academy Award winner for Best Achievement in Music Written for Motion Pictures, Rocketman saw Taron Egerton shine as the most flamboyant man of Rock and Roll in one of the best performances of his career.

Rocketman tells the tale of how legendary musician Elton John rose to stardom. Not without controversy, behind Elton John’s flamboyant on-stage persona was a man plagued by sex, drugs, and the increasing pressure of revealing his sexuality to a hostile world.

The Peanut Butter Falcon (2019)

Director: Tyler Nilson, Michael Schwartz
Genre: Adventure, Comedy, Drama | Runtime: 97 Minutes
Cast: Zack Gottsagen, Dakota Johnson, Shia LaBeouf, Bruce Dern, Ann Owens

A modern take on the story of Mark Twain with even more heart, and some superb acting.

To achieve his dream of becoming a professional wrestler, Zak, a young man with Down syndrome, runs away from his nursing home and begins his journey to the wrestling school, The Salt Water Redneck. Joining Zak on his journey is unlikely coach and ally, the outlaw on the run Tyler, and Eleanor a kind nursing home employee.
