February has a nice mix of drama and comedy films coming to your local cinema. Of course we start off with The Fighter. If you haven’t read our review, the bottom line: go and see it for the showcase of acting on display, including some memorable performances from Christian Bale and Melissa Leo.
February also sees the release of the Coen brother’s new western epic True Grit, which was recently nominated for ten oscars including Best Picture. Also soon to be released is the crime-movie described as Australia’s answer to Goodfellas, Animal Kingdom and the sequel to classic British comedy East is East, West is West.
I know how we go on about James Franco’s superb turn as Aron Ralston in 127 hours, but this guy has unbelievable versatility, as he gives another breathtaking performance as Allen Ginsberg in Howl.
Here are our selection of films to look out for in February:
