BOBBY (2006)

Certification12 Our Rating

A number of unrelated people from different social and ethnic backgrounds are observed in their lives leading up to, and their reactions in the aftermath of, a tragedy, in this case the assassination of Robert Kennedy. Directed by Emilio Estevez with an awesome cast at his disposal, Bobby is a fascinating and intelligent observation of the impact events in history have on the common people who both create it and are influenced by it. An intriguing premise. find out more...

This dramatic history of Chicago's Chess Records has a superb soundtrack(though it consists almost entirely of covers) and its insights into the relationship between white money making businessmen and poor black talent back in the stifling '50s more than makes up for its overwrought melodrama, historic inaccuracies and poor script. find out more...

A big, stylish, booming story about three young girls, a Supremes-like band The Dreamettes, singing their way to superstardom. Undoubtedly a nod to the meteoric rise of the ‘Three Degrees', or could it just be any Motown band?, Dreamgirls is a smooth well performed pseudo biog and Jennifer Hudson is truly hypnotic in her Oscar (best support actress) winning performance. find out more...

Winner of four Oscars including Best Film and Best Actress. Jessica Tandy stars as Miss Daisy, the cantankerous Jewish widow who very unwillingly has to hire a black chauffeur. Over the years these two very different people have to learn to live together. Both humourous and touching. find out more...

This stunning debut by writer/director, Kasi Lemmon explores the fortunes of an affluent Louisiana family through the eyes of 10 year old. Set in the summer of 1962, Eve discovers dark secrets beneath the veneer. The performances are wonderful and this is an excellent drama. Highly Recommended! find out more...

Certification12 Our Rating

A slow, lyrical series of vignettes, often banal, but always poetic, about life one hot summer in a decaying Deep South (North Carolina) small town for a tight-knit, predominately black, group of impoverished semi-rural children on the cusp of adolescence and responsibility. The plot, for what it matters; a child's game goes astray and one is accidentally killed, trapping the children in a lie that slowly pulls them apart. George is the handicapped (his skull hasn't fused) introspective, but inw find out more...

Don Haskins is the basketball coach for a small Texas University, but he's also a man with a dream and that is to win the National Championship. Based, if somewhat inaccurately, on a true story that took place in the 1960s, Glory Road is a remarkable, if familiar, tale of the underdog, in this instance a predominantly black team, coming from nowhere to powerhouse through the field and face the overwhelming favourites in a final that everyone only thought they'd witness as spectators. An inspirin find out more...

Back in 1963 a naive Southern belle dumps her hubby to try and get to JFK's funeral but ends up banding together with a fugitive black guy trying to reunite with the child he lost. The two have to beat both racism and mutual antipathy before getting it together in this unusual love story. Watch. find out more...

Spike Lee's mainstream take on the ex-petty crook turned Islamic preacher and leading 60s Civil Rights spokesman Malcolm X. Washington's performance is riveting in this epic. find out more...
RAY (2004)

Certification15 Our Rating

A mesmerising dramatisation of one of the kings, Ray Charles. Unsurprisingly the soundtrack is pure bliss, but it is Jamie Foxx in the title role that pulls everything together, an hypnotic performance of a music legend, through all his highs and lows, and one of those increasingly rare examples of a leading actor Oscar that actually makes sense. find out more...
