*************

Spider-Man: Far From Home is a 2019 American superhero film based on the Marvel Comics character Spider-Man, co-produced by Columbia Pictures and Marvel Studios, and distributed by Sony Pictures Releasing. It is the sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) and the twenty-third film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). The film is directed by Jon Watts, written by Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers, and stars Tom Holland as Peter Parker / Spider-Man, alongside Samuel L. Jackson, Zendaya, Cobie Smulders, Jon Favreau, J. B. Smoove, Jacob Batalon, Martin Starr, Marisa Tomei, and Jake Gyllenhaal.

In Spider-Man: Far From Home, Peter Parker with his friends is going to Europe on a school trip to get away from his life as Spider-Man. Still distraught over Tony Stark’s death, Peter plans to confess his growing feelings for classmate Michelle Jones (MJ) and avoid heroics. The trip is going great until Nick Fury shows up and requests that Parker suit up again. The Elements, four extradimensional humanoids who became immortal with control over natural elements, are wreaking havoc around the continent. …

Peter Parker: Everywhere I go, I see his face. I just really miss him.
Happy Hogan: Yeah, I miss him too. I don’t think Tony would’ve done what he did, if he didn’t know that you were going to be here after he was gone.

Peter Parker: You look really pretty.
Michelle Jones: And therefore I have value?
Peter Parker: No, no, no. That’s not what I meant.
Michelle Jones: I’m messing with you.
[Peter laughs nervously]
Michelle Jones: You look pretty too.

Peter Parker: I just want to spend some time with MJ. I think she really likes me, dude.
Ned: It really reminds of me when I first fell in love. I had just finished my phone call…
[just then he gets shot in the neck with a tranq dart and collapses; Fury is sitting holding the tranq gun]
Nick Fury: So nice to finally meet you, Spider-Man.
Peter Parker: You’re Nick Fury.
Nick Fury: Put some clothes on, let’s go for a ride.
Peter Parker: Is he going to be okay like that?
[we see Ned snoring]
Nick Fury: You might want to turn him over so he doesn’t swallow his tongue.

 

SOUNDS GOOD! Film In Lingua Originale

Il prossimo film in lingua originale è The Death & Life of John F. Donovan, in programma al Cinema Centrale lunedì 8 luglio alle 21.20.

Scheda a cura di Wall Street English presso le casse del cinema.

************

The Death & Life of John F. Donovan is a Canadian drama film, co-written, co-produced, and directed by Xavier Dolan in his English-language debut. The film deals with themes of celebrity, tabloid media in Hollywood, mother-son relationships, and homosexuality. Kit Harington plays John F.Donovan, a young American TV actor who finds in Rupert Turner (Jacob Tremblay), an 11-year-old fan, the most unexpected pen-pal. Now fully grown, a decade after John’s death, Rupert (Ben Schnetzer) chooses to gather their correspondence for a book, reflecting on the late star’s states of mind through his words. The film chronicles John Donovan’s career in 2006 up through the present day as the older Rupert mourns the actor’s death during an interview with journalist Audrey Newhouse (Thandie Newton). Susan Sarandon also appears as Grace Donovan, John’s mother, alongside Kathy Bates as his manager Barbara Haggermaker, and Natalie Portman as the boy’s mother. With three distinct characters (a young Rupert, his 20-something older self, and Donovan himself), the film aspires to intertwine all storylines together, and at times this combination works, opening a door on the characters’ inner vulnerabilities. “His style usually unleashing an extremely divisive response, Xavier Dolan’s latest opus The Death and Life of John F. Donovan is unlikely to drastically change audiences’ minds. In this, the Québécois director’s first English-language feature, Dolan studies the toxic aspects of stardom, while once again losing his characters within the vagaries of maternal tragedy. While always excelling at portraying the chaotic ballet of family ties, here Dolan struggles to connect mothers with sons. Harington gives a convincing performance, underlining John’s ambivalent side, both in love and in hate with his mother Grace (Susan Sarandon) – a strand sadly under-explored.” (Marie-Célia Cannenpasse) Dolan told Collider during a recent set visit that his film is “the story of a child who worships an actor.” The French Canadian filmmaker added that his latest is built around Hollywood movie tropes of the superhero and the villain.

SOUNDS GOOD! – Film in Lingua Originale

Il prossimo film in lingua originale è The Professor, al Centrale lunedì 1 luglio ore 21.20.

Scheda a cura di Wall Street English presso le casse del cinema.

************

The Professor (previously titled Richard Says Goodbye) is a 2018 American comedy-drama film written and directed by Wayne Roberts. The film stars Johnny Depp, Rosemarie DeWitt, Danny Huston, Zoey Deutch, Ron Livingston and Odessa Young.

‘Save your best lesson for last’.

Richard (Johnny Depp), a college professors, is diagnosed  a stage -four lung cancer. The doctor says he has probably a year and a half to live if he begins treatment immediately. Richard opts to reject  treatment, knowing that so he will have only six months to live.
Meaning to inform his family that night at dinner, Richard is sidetracked by others’ news. His wife, Veronica (Rosemarie DeWitt), reacts with such insulting condescension when their daughter, Olivia (Odessa Young), declares she’s gay that the latter storms off. Then Veronica announces that she’s having an affair with Henry (Ron Livingston), the boss Richard loathes. Thus prevented, Richard decides to keep his condition secret.
Richard decides to live what remains of his life with reckless abandon, disregarding all of society’s stifling rules.  In the literature class he teaches, he says he’ll be doing things “very differently” this semester. Everyone else thinks he’s having a meltdown: abandoning his English class syllabus, smoking, drinking.
The only person who knows the truth is a colleague, his friend Peter (Danny Huston), who will try to keep his friend upright.

FILM IN LINGUA ORIGINALE

Il prossimo film in lingua originale è RED JOAN, in programma al Cinema Centrale lunedì 13 maggio ore 20.30 e martedì 14 ore 18.30.
Scheda a cura di Wall Street English presso le casse del cinema.

**********

Red Joan is a 2018 British spy drama film, directed by Trevor Nunn, based on a novel of the same name written by Jennie Rooney, which was itself inspired by the life of Melita Norwood (1912-2005), who successfully passed classified information about the British Atomic program to the Russians in the 1940s & 50s. This was only discovered in 1992 by which time the Ministry of Defence declined to prosecute the then 80 year old .

The film stars Stephen Campbell Moore, Sophie Cookson, Tom Hughes, Ben Miles, Nina Sosanya, Tereza Srbova and Judi Dench.

“I was fighting for the living, I loved my country!”

In the year 2000, in a picturesque village in England, Joan Stanley (Judi Dench), lives in contented retirement. Then suddenly her tranquil existence is shattered as she’s shockingly arrested by MI5, Britain’s CIA equivalent. She is defended by her lawyer son Nick (Ben Miles), who is furious: “How could you do this?” he insists, while reluctantly taking on her case. Joan confesses after her arrest that she was always a good British citizen though she handed nuclear secrets to Stalin. How so? Disgusted that the U.S. dropped bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, she believed that the best way to avoid future nuclear holocausts is to make sure that the two super powers would live together in relative peace. And they would live together in relative peace knowing that it would be self-destructive to drop atomic weapons on each other.

Joan had been hiding an incredible past: she was one of the most influential spies in living history. The young Joan (Sophie Cookson), a demure physics student, falls intensely in love with a seductively attractive Russian saboteur, Leo Galich (Tom Hughes), a communist activist who in a rousing speech notes that as a Jew, he made the mistake of leaving the Soviet Union and going to Germany. Aware of Hitler’s atrocities, he is orating full speed in favor of the Russians. Through him, she begins to see that the world is on a knife-edge and perhaps must be saved from itself in the race to military supremacy. Post-war and now working at a top secret nuclear research facility, Joan is confronted with the impossible: Would you betray your country and your loved ones, if it meant saving them? What price would you pay for peace?
