Movie Monday - 7/14/2014

The 2014 PBS Online Film Festival continues until the end of the month.  Y'all should check it out here. The longest film is only sixteen minutes and change.  I've watched more of the movies:

Dog Save the Queen is about a hunt for a direct descendant of the Queen's corgis to further the line. Seems when HRM visited Rarotonga, Cook Islands in 1974, one of dogs had a night on the town and populated the place.

El Doctor is about a couple who hired two migrant workers to build a deck in their backyard.

El Reloj is about a girl and her grandfather on their weekly Sunday outing.

First Match is about a girl wrestling on an all boy team.

I Am the Aurora Hunter is about the best aurora borealis photographer in the world.

Islands is about a girl who finds love in the Pacific Islands - all without speaking!

Lady Thunderhawks is about a Native American high school basketball team that inspires hope in their community.

I also watched The Grand Budapest Hotel.  It's a Wes Anderson quirky film about how the owner of the hotel ended up with it.  There are many good actors in it:  Jude Law, F. Murray Abraham, Ralph Fiennes, Tom Wilkinson, Bill Murray, Tilda Swinton, Owen Wilson, Adrien Brody, Saoirse Ronan, Willem Dafoe, Mathieu Amalric and Jeff Goldblum...just to name a few.  It was funny and quirky and I liked it.

MK out.
