Youth In Revolt

Youth In Revolt

This week our cinema picks include the new Michael Cera comedy Youth in Revolt and drama Invictus. Plus with Couples Retreat also released on DVD, make this weekend a movie marathon. 

Youth in Revolt
A funny coming of age film, it’s the story of Nick Twisp a unique, but affable teen who meets the girl of his dreams (Sheeni) on a family holiday. But family, geography and jealous ex-lovers conspire to keep these two apart. With Sheeni’s encouragement, Nick develops a rebellious alter ego: Francois. With his ascot, moustache and his cigarette, Francois will stop at nothing to be with Sheeni, and leads Nick Twisp on a path of destruction with unpredictable and uproarious consequences. Click here to watch the trailer.



Starring Matt Damon and Morgan Freeman, the story starts after the fall of apartheid, when South Africa was due to host to the 1995 Rugby World Cup. While Mandela was in his first term as president, he decided to used the event as a way to end decades of mistrust, hatred and racial unrest. You don’t need to be a rugby fan to get emotional watching this beautifully shot film, directed by Clint Eastwood. Damon and Freeman on form as usual.

Couples Retreat
Vince Vaughn, Jason Bateman, Jon Favreau, Malin Akerman, Kristin Davis, Kristen Bell and Faizon Love star in this comedy flick. Based on an original idea of Vaughn’s, the comedy follows four Midwestern couples who embark on a journey to a tropical island resort.  While one of the couples is there to work on their marriage, the other three set out to jet ski, spa and enjoy some fun in the sun.  They soon discover that participation in the resort’s couples therapy is not optional. What follows is a hilarious look at real problems faced by all couples. Click here to buy it now.
