Downton Abbey: The MovieDownton Abbey: The Movie (2019)
Dir. Michael Engler

Dir. Sebastián Lelio
Feat. Julianne Moore, John Turturro, Caren Pistorius

Dir. Dexter Fletcher
Feat. Taron Egerton, Jamie Bell, Richard Madden
Musical biopic with Taron Egerton playing Elton John, capturing the flamboyant and troubled extremes of his life. Set in his early years when he was a prodigy at the Royal Academy of Music, and exploring the development of his creative relationship with lyricist Bernie Taupin. A heartfelt and hugely…
Aftermath, TheAftermath, The (2019)
