Léa’s Film Queue: August 8th – August 14th

[Admin’s Note: Film Queues will be back, here’s our first one in a while.]

Sleeping With Other People (2015)
Directed by Leslye Headland

A refreshing take on modern sexuality through friendship. It was lovely, sometimes corny, but all-around a very fun watch.

King Dave (2016)
Directed by Daniel Grou (Podz)

Before it became a movie, it was a play. King Dave is a monologue built around the character of Dave, a man whose world is collapsing with every new breath he takes. It’s wonderful to watch and an interesting take on the world that was so well-constructed for the stage. It was shot as a single sequence shot and that in itself deserves respect. I absolutely loved it but cannot give it the ”perfect mark” as I know that It’s a story that carries even better in the theatre world. As great as it is as a film, King Dave deserves the energy and the aura of the live audience.

When in Rome (2010)
Directed Mark Steven Johnson

It took me quite a while to realise I had seen this movie before. That’s what it is and nothing more: a chick-flick that probably won’t be remembered after you’ve watched it. As much as I love Kristen Bell, her chemistry with Josh Duhamel I found to be non-existent and although the cameo of my beloved Will Arnett made me laugh, it didn’t lift this average romantic comedy enough to make me truly enjoy it.
