Oscar Nominated Films To Binge Watch!
We suggest you grab your popcorn and get down to the cinema - quick, because the Academy Awards are returning for it's 87th year and you don't want to say you missed the most talked about movies of the year!
1. The Theory of Everything
Eddie Redmayne seamlessly transforms into Professor Stephen Hawkings for this touching biopic which follows the professor's life, love and struggle with motor neurone disease. The actor is so convincing in his role, he has been given a nod in the 'Best Actor' category at this year's Academy Awards.
2. The Imitation Game
Benedict Cumberbatch is set to go head to head with Eddie Redmayne in the 'Best Actor' category for this WW2 drama which tells the true story of Alan Turing and his plight in cracking the Nazi's enigma code. The film, which also stars Keira Knightley, also depicts the moment Turing encounters disgrace when authorities reveal he is gay and send him to prison, a real tear-jerker.
3. American Sniper
Taking on the role of a U.S Navy SEAL, 'American Sniper' shows Bradley Cooper as you've never seen him before. Known as a "legend" for his bullseye gun range and courageous exploits, Chris Kyle is a key asset on frontline in Iraq but drama ensues when he returns to his family back home.
Michael Keaton, Emma Stone and Naomi Watts all star in this quirky drama about a washed up actor who hopes a risqué Broadway production will breathe life into his stagnant film career.
5. The Grand Budapest Hotel
Comical and witty would describe Ralph Fiennes' role as Gustave H, a ski resort owner who prides himself on providing first-class service to the hotel's guests, including satisfying the (ahem!) sexual needs of the many elderly women who stay there. Expect sex, mystery and laughter from this flick!
A touching drama following Dr.Martin Luther King's fight for suffrage for African Americans in the the post-segregation era. Despite violent opposition, he and his followers pressed forward on an epic march from Selma to Montgomery, and their efforts resulted in President Lyndon Johnson signing the Voting Rights Act of 1965.
First going into production back in 2002, 'Boyhood' used the same cast for over a decade to tell the story of a young boy's journey through adolescence. This film is sure to make you cry with tears and laughter throughout as you follow his roller coaster ride through life.
You'll be on the edge of your seats as you watch the intense relationship between a music student (Miles Teller) and his sadistic music teacher (JK Simmons) who uses fear and intimidation tactics to push his band to perfection.
