John Wick: Chapter 4  (2023)

Rating: R

Release Date: In theatres nationwide on Friday, March 24, 2023.

Summary: In John Wick: Chapter 4, your favorite butt kicker, John Wick (Keanu Reeves), is back, and he has uncovered a path to defeat The High Table. However, before he can get back to earning his freedom, there is a new enemy that Wick must defeat. An enemy with powerful alliances across the globe and has ways to make old friends into foes.

What to Watch For: Chad Stahelski, the former stuntman of Keanu Reeves, is back to direct his fourth John Wick film.

My Take: Several film critic friends have said this may be the best one yet.

A Good Person   (2023)

Rating: R

Release Date: In theatres nationwide on Friday, March 24, 2023.

Summary: A Good Person is about Alison (Florence Pugh), whose life has fallen apart after being involved in a fatal accident. With the help of her mother (Molly Shannon) and her would-be father-in-law (Morgan Freeman), Alison slowly turns her life around, but not before a lot of pain is dealt with.

What to Watch For: The film is written and directed by Zach Braff. Braff wrote and directed the award-winning films Garden State (2004) and Wish I Was Here (2014).

Word on the Street: The score is from Bryce Dessner, who did the score for the 2021 musical Cyrano starring Peter Dinklage and Haley Bennett.

My Take: I love Florence Pugh. Her voice work as Goldilocks in Puss in Boots: The Last Wish (2022) was one of the best things in the film.

The Lost King   (2022)

Rating: PG-13

Release Date: In select theatres on Friday, March 24, 2023.

Summary: The Lost King is about an amateur historian, Philippa (Sally Hawkins), who learns that no one knows where King Richard III’s remains are buried. Philippa goes on a quest to find where King Richard’s remains are, defying the stodgy academic establishment. She has a little help; the ghost of King Richard III.

What to Watch For: The film is directed by Stephen Frears, who was nominated for his films The Queen (2006) and The Grifters (1990).

Word on the Street: The film won Best Feature Film at the 2023 Boulder International Film Festival.

My Take: I am a huge fan of Sally Hawkins, who was nominated for an Oscar for her roles in The Shape of Water (2017) and Blue Jasmine (2013). One of my favorite roles of Hawkins is Poppy in the 2008 Mike Leigh film Happy-Go-Lucky.

Rodeo  (2022)

Rating: N/A

Release Date: In select theatres on Friday, March 24, 2023.

Summary: In Rodeo, Julia (Julie Ledru) is a young woman who has a troubled life, living in social housing and having almost no relationship with her mother. She loves motocross and will do anything, including stealing bikes, to ride. She becomes part of a bike theft ring when an accident jeopardizes her ability to fit in.

What to Watch For: The film was up for four awards at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival, winning the Jury Coup de Coeur.

Word on the Street: The writer/director of the film Lola Quivoron discovered Julie Ledru, on Instagram. Like her character, Julie is a motocross rider, and some aspects of her real-life make it into her character.

My Take: I am hearing great things about this film, and it’s at an impressive 83% on Rotten Tomatoes.

Chantilly Bridge   (2023)

Rating: N/A

Summary: Chantilly Bridge is about a group of lifelong friends who have gathered for a funeral of one of their own. They explore their past, parenthood, careers, loves, and reasons for still being friends after twenty-five years.

What to Watch For: This is a sequel to the groundbreaking 1993 film Chantilly Lace, which was shot with an all-female ensemble cast.

Word on the Street: The original cast, composed of JoBeth Williams, Helen Slater, Lindsay Crouse, Talia Shire, Jill Eikenberry, Ally Sheedy, and Martha Plimpton, all return for this film. Patricia Richardson and Naaji Sky Adzimah are new additions to the cast.

My Take: I remember seeing the first film on Showtime back in 93 and look forward to seeing how the characters have developed.
