2019 has been a fantastic year for female roles as I had 41 performances on my long list to cut down to make this top 25. I can only think that is an amazing way to notice the change in more interesting roles for females within film. I feel this list has a very good mixture of different types of roles across the different genres.
*Original title – The Sleepwalker Killing
Mark Schall kills his mother-in-law and injures his father-in-law in the middle of the night and turns himself in covered in blood with no memory of what crime he actually committed. His defence comes that he was sleepwalking when he did it . . .
Bridget must return back home to Chicago to help her brother Nick and father Burt as they struggle to deal with how Ruth is declining in her battle with Alzheimer’s.
Eleanor Riese a patient in the psychiatric unit of a San Francisco hospital knows that the medication she is being given is making her worse. She manages to request a lawyer and Colette Hughes takes on the case, which turns out to be an uphill legal battle to improve treatment for mental patients by having consent to the drugs they are given.
Juliet Devereau a young doctor who has just moved into a new apartment in Brooklyn after splitting up with her boyfriend Jack. Looking to live on her own and with Max giving her a very good deal, she feels that something just isn’t right . . .
Two brothers trying to avoid the unlucky family curse attempt to pull off a huge heist during a NASCAR race.
I saw this going around Twitter last night listing your 7 Favourite Best Picture winners but I thought I wanted to put a blog post together to be able to have more information in it! As you may already know I have an ongoing Best Picture Project where I am trying to watch as many of the nominated films as possible. So you can check which films I have seen on that list.
I am sure none of my choices will come as any real surprise, as some of my all time favourite films have won Best Picture! Although it was quite tricky to slim the list down to just seven films.
