SYNOPSIS:

Australia’s Teresa Palmer (Hacksaw Ridge, Warm Bodies) stars alongside Game of Thrones’ Michiel Huisman in a story of a love that will not die and lovers who may not survive.

Air traffic controller Dylan (Huisman) lives his life each day with consistent precision, but nevertheless senses something is missing. An ominous pattern of events becomes evident as it starts to repeat itself in exactly the same manner, at exactly 2:22pm every day. When he crosses paths with the beautiful Sarah (Palmer) they both feel a sense of connection, but little do they know they share a bond that transcends time itself.

SYNOPSIS:

Inspired by true events at the most haunted house in history. On an isolated stretch of land 50 miles outside of San Francisco sits a house that knows no end. Built by heiress Sarah Winchester (Academy Award® winner Helen Mirren) in an incessant twenty-four-hour-a-day, seven-day-a-week mania over decades, it stands seven stories tall and contains hundreds of rooms, staircases to nowhere and doors that open into walls. To the outsider it looks like a monstrous monument to a disturbed woman’s madness. But Sarah is not building for herself, for her niece (Sarah Snook) or for the troubled Doctor Eric Price (Jason Clarke) who has been summoned to the house. She is building a prison, an asylum for hundreds of vengeful ghosts, and the most terrifying among them have a score to settle with the Winchesters…

Appearing in cinemas nationally February 22Winchester will take audiences inside the labyrinthine mansion and the troubled mind of a grieving widow.

REVIEW:

Nerida:

The trailer for this film did its job and wow did this film not disappoint on what was pitched in those trailers. I personally did not know the whole story in-depth of Tonya Harding primarily because I was only young when “the incident” happened -however after watching this I am intrigued with her story, even if its from many unreliable view points.

Firstly the directing in this film is fantastic from start to finish, Craig Gillespie has done a brilliant job with this film there is not a fault with it. He has managed to capture the high intensity of the skating scenes which a brilliantly shot to the much more slow paced character moments. Neither type of scene seems out of place, rushed or to slow. He as a director is definitely on my radar!

The Cast is brilliant all around however I’m going to focus on the three main players of the film. Firstly Margot Robbie, who is time and again proving that she is a fantastic young actress and will go on to do great things in the future. Her performance is fantastic, its so good that you very quickly get over the fact that its her and you accept that its actually Tonya there. She embodies the character extremely well and leaves and ever last impression, you feel almost sympathy to her as if she is actually the victim? It is her best work to date. Next Allison Janney, now this actress does not get enough big roles for me, she is extremely underrated and deserves much more praise then she get. This is her best performance that I’ve seen, even though she is playing and extremely horrible person. Coupled together with the dialogue and the ridiculous outfits, that are perfect, she is a shining light in the film and 100% deserves some type of award absolutely brilliant. Lastly is Sebastian Stan who is again brilliant and even though he portrays a man that does terrible things, you again feel a strange sympathy towards him because he didn’t mean it to happen, well he says he didn’t but we should take that with a pinch of salt. Stan is fantastic!

Overall I wasn’t expecting much from this film even though the trailers looked promising, I was blown away by this film it is extremely good and it has a great re-watachability to it. This film is very good, extremely funny at times but does a serious side to it at times and so it should. With all the awards talk, it’s definitely worth checking out to see for yourself!
