Thirteen Livesthe true story of an incredible rescue

In July 2018, twelve young soccer players and their coach find themselves stuck in a flooded cave in Thailand, with no way to get out. The incredible international rescue operation carried out by two British divers is followed by the whole world.

A great show, carried in particular by the actor Viggo Mortensen (like what Aragorn is never very far after all…)

spencerwith a Kristen Stewart transformed into the skin of Princess Diana

While Diana and Prince Charles’ marriage has been on the rocks for several months, a truce is ordered for the Christmas festivities at the Queen’s estate in Sandringham. Lady Di will try to deceive… More of a Shakespearean tragedy than a biographical narrative, Spencer could confuse some viewers. But the film is worth watching for the incandescent performance of unrecognizable Kristen Stewart as the Princess of Wales. A film validated by specialist Stéphane Bern.

The Contractoran action film not to be missed

Serviceman injured in the knee, James (Chris Pine, perfect) is unfairly discharged from the army. To earn a living, he is hired as a mercenary for a security group and is sent on a mission to Berlin. But here, nothing will go as planned. Despite an (too) classic plot, Tarik Saleh, director of the excellent Confidential Cairo, delivers an action film all the more gripping as its characters are worked and endearing.

Crisisa high-flying cast for a social subject that takes

Unpublished in theaters, this drama evokes the terrible question of opioids, which are wreaking havoc in the United States, through three stories. Those of a trafficker who smuggles his “merchandise” between Canada and the USA, an architect who fights against his addiction and a scientist whose company is launching a new painkiller. A hot topic, embodied by a high-flying cast, including Gary Oldman, Evangeline Lilly and Lily-Rose Depp.

If you’re looking for a good romantic comedy to clear your mind, Palm Springs will fulfill its mission, while moving away from the clichés of the genre. Max Barbakow’s film is more eyeing the side ofAn endless dayfrom whom he borrows the concept of the time loop, even from the films of Judd Apatow (40 years old still a virgin) for this mixture of sentimentalism and trash humor. Perfectly embodied by the facetious Andy Samberg (Brooklyn Nine-Nine), Nyles wakes up every day in the same place, that of a wedding where his partner is a bridesmaid. Impossible to escape this curse for the young man, condemned to relive the same day forever, until he meets Sarah, the bride’s sister (the piquant Cristin Milioti of How I Met Your Mother). A concept declined with malice during 1h30 but the success of the film is also due to its duo of main actors, whose alchemy on the screen is obvious, just like to its soundtrack.

The continuation under this advertisement

Texas, 1981. With his chic looks and polite manners, Forrest Tucker (Robert Redford) robs a bank under the nose and beard of a police inspector (Casey Affleck). It must be said that this bandit of a certain age, famous for having escaped 18 times from prison in the 1970s, has the art and the way of not arousing suspicion. The solitary routine of this tireless criminal will be turned upside down by his meeting with Jewel (Sissy Spacek), a charming woman with a tidy life. Based on a true story, this tender and captivating portrait of a gentleman burglar brilliantly blends detective film and romance. With sparkling eyes, Robert Redford is striking in the skin of a robber grandpa whose thirst for freedom remains the best elixir of youth.
