This concludes week 4 of the #FridayFakeCinemaClub and The Dig was certainly another very different film for us to all watch this week. We certainly have covered many different genres so far, The Dig stars Carey Mulligan, Ralph Fiennes, Lily James, Johnny Flynn, Ben Chaplin, Ken Stott, Archie Barnes and Monica Dolan. As we witness a retelling of the true story of the Anglo-Saxon excavation of Sutton Hoo.

Elizabeth Bennet along with her four sisters Jane, Mary, Kitty and Lydia are living in Georgian England and about to have their lives turned upside down when wealthy young Mr. Bingley and Mr. Darcy arrive. Could this be the answer Mrs Bennet has been waiting for her daughters to marry?
Considering the way 2020 went with the cinema closed for most of the year, even when they reopened the new films being offered were few and far between. Although I cannot really complain too much with getting to see all three Lord of the Rings extended editions twice something I had wanted to do for many years. So this year I have had to combine the small number of cinema films which include some 2019 films but due to UK release dates qualify for my top 10 best films of 2020 list! Then combined with films then added to streaming sites and catching up with some before the end of the year. At one point I was unsure if I could even pick a top 10, so it could be my most interesting yet!
