Johnny Depp and Penelope Cruz

Johnny Depp and Penelope Cruz

This week we’ve got three films that are sure to tickle at least one of your fancies. There action, drama and scissors. Yes, you heard us… scissors.

The first film recommendation this week is Pirates of the Caribbean 4: On Stranger Tides starring Johnny Depp, Penelope Cruz and Geoffrey Rush to name a few. You’re guaranteed to be entertained watching this, whether it’s the action or just Johnny’s pretty face.

Synopsis:

Captain Jack Sparrow crosses paths with a woman from his past, but he’s not sure if it’s real love, or if she is using him to find the elusive fountain of youth, which he also happens to be looking for. When she forces him aboard the Queen Anne’s revenge, the ship run by the evil Blackbeard, he finds himself competing against both his old flame, and his old enemy to find the fountain first.

The next film is a BATD favourite; Win Win. It stars Paul Giamatti and Amy Ryan.

Synposis:

Disheartened attorney Mike Flaherty, whose sorry high school wrestling team couldn’t even hurt a fly, stumbles across a star athlete through some questionable business dealings while trying to support his family. Just as it looks like he is on the brink of success, the boy’s mother shows up straight from rehab demanding money. I loved this film, Giametti is brilliant in anything, you just sympathise with his character so much, despite his selfish motives you know his heart is in the right place. Really funny, but not full of jokes, it’s more to do with the excellent dynamic between Bobby Cannavale (Will’s boyfriend from Will & Grace) Jeffrey Tambor & Giamatti as the wrestling team coaches. Definitely see this one!

Lastly for all you beauty lovers out there, there’s a new docu-film about Vidal Sassoon, Vidal Sassoon: The Movie. If you’ve ever wanted to know what it takes to make it in such a competitive industry, see what it’s just to be the name behind such a huge global brand or just to see backstage snaps of celebrities and fashion shows, then this is the film for you. It’s a brilliant history of fashion too with old footage of his celeb fans, including that controversial Mia Farrow hair cut for her role in Rosemary’s Baby, where she even credited Sassoon with a line in the actual movie.

Synopsis:

Vidal Sassoon both revolutionised the art of hairdressing and made a lasting impact on popular culture. The self-made success went from a London orphanage to international stardom and the master of his craft. This documentary follows his life and legacy, and documents the creation of his pioneering, geometric, Bauhaus-inspired hair styles and his “wash and wear” philosophy which still have an impact on womens’ hairdressing today.
