'The Descendants' and other winsome films
It's the awards season once again..... and a gala time for cine-buffs like me. I have been lucky to feast on a really enjoyable movie-fare of late. Not all of them are nominees at awards ceremonies, yet all of them have had something special to have me hooked in the first place, and to have recommended them to my fellow cinema-lovers. Some of these films I caught at the fag end of the last year, and the others have been savored this month itself. Here they are:
We Need To Talk About Kevin
Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows
The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of The Unicorn
The Tree of Life
The Ides of March
Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows: Part 2
Puss in Boots
Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy
Crazy, Stupid, Love.
