A combative Oscar winner, a gripping action star and a warm road movie – in times of Corona the living room becomes a substitute for a cinema
The cinemas remain closed, but that doesn’t mean we have to do without cinema films entirely. A few movie tips for at home.
Oscar for Julia Roberts
Former beauty queen exposes huge environmental scandal: With “Erin Brockovich – A True Story”, director Steven Soderbergh not only filmed the true story of environmental activist Erin Brockovich. Julia Roberts was also in top form in the leading role and won the Oscar for best actress in 2001.
Albert Finney can be seen at her side as a lawyer, with whose help Brockovich exposes the machinations. From 17.1. the film, which grossed more than 300 million US dollars worldwide, can be seen on Sky.
Action with Gerard Butler
His muscular stature alone suggests that Gerard Butler can do a lot – and that is exactly what the Brit proves on the screen in “Olympus Has Fallen – The World in Danger”. In it he plays an agent of the Secret Service who wants to save the US president from an assassination attempt and at the same time wants to keep world peace.
A lot of oomph and gripping action were so well received by the audience in 2013 that two sequels were already in the cinemas. Now Starzplay is picking up “Olympus Has Fallen” from January 21st. in the program.
Good mood hit
A small independent production develops into a theatrical success and brings in seven times the budget – that’s exactly what happened with “Little Miss Sunshine”. The comedy tells of little Olive who travels with her family through the United States to take part in a beauty pageant. But their tour is marked by a lot of chaos and unpredictable challenges …
“Little Miss Sunshine” is a warm-hearted road movie and shines with Toni Collette and Greg Kinnear as parents, Paul Dano as brother and Abigail Breslin as Olive. The tragic comedy won two Oscars and will be available on Sky from January 24th.
