I don’t talk a lot about the movies I’m watching as it’s not my favourite passtime. But I want to talk about 3 movies I loved last year: The theory of everything, The imitation game and The Scandalous Lady W.
The theory of everything
I watched a TV series with the famous physicist Stephen Hawking and I’m a huge fan. So I was excited to see The theory of everything, a movie about his life, his years in Cambridge, how he met and married his wife. It was a fascinating movie to watch. The lead actor, Eddie Redmayne, won an Oscar that I think was very well deserved. I didn’t know anything about Hawking’s life and it was an emotional movie.
The imitation game
The imitation game is another movie after a real story. I heard about the Turing machines as a child from my mother when she was talking about what she learned at Uni. My husband learned about them too at University. But we weren’t aware of the story behind the Turing machines, the enigma code. It’s moving and upsetting what happened with him. The movie is superb and emotional. I can’t recommend it enough.
The Scandalous Lady W
The third movie I’m talking about is another real life story, The Scandalous Lady W. As a teenager I’ve read hundreds of fictional historical dramas and I was aware of the difficulties faced by British aristocracy. Funnily people assume that they had dances and servants and a very easy life when in fact they had many problems to face and, in ways, less options than their servants had.
This year I’m looking forward to Star Wars and The Danish girl. At the moment hubby and I are watching the first 6 episodes of Star Wars and only after that we are going to see episode 7. Have you seen these movies? Did you enjoy them?
