American Son

Based on the critically acclaimed Broadway play, ‘American Son’ is the story of a woman looking for her missing son. The film follows her agonising attempts to connect with law enforcement and portray the seriousness of the situation in the midst of institutional racism. Will the arrival of her ‘white’ ex-husband make the police take seriously the disappearance of a young black man and find him before it’s too late? Powerfully challenging of the stereotypes people of colour can face from white people in authority. The film has received some negative feedback and this is potentially down to the play being adapted for the screen and the main cast are the same as the play actors, namely; Kerry Washington and Steven Pasquale. Even so, the film offers a sobering perspective to end Black History Month with.

Holiday In The Wild

As Kate’s marriage comes to an abrupt, unforeseen end she decides to embark on the second honeymoon she’d always dreamed of anyway, alone!

As Kate (Sex in the City’s Kristin Davis) finds nature, wild animals and new friends, she also finds herself. There is, of course, a love interest played by Rob Lowe and the pair grow ever closer throughout the feel-good movie (despite being determined not to) until realising they are not that dissimilar after all.
