Military Wives

A group of women with partners serving in Afghanistan decides to form a choir to cope with the absence of their loved ones. Coached by the passionate but severe Kate (Scott Thomas), the wives' collective musical talent proves to be shaky at best, with the jaded Lisa (Horgan) often voicing the skepticism the women feel about the effectiveness of the group. As time goes on and their bond is strengthened by their shared grief, stress and loneliness, the women's singing becomes increasingly beautiful and proves vital to the emotional well-being of their military families. Eventually, their talent earns them a spot in the televised Festival of Remembrance, where their message and performance turn them into an international media phenomenon. This film is based on a true story.

Director: Peter Cattaneo. Stars: Kristin Scott Thomas, Sharon Horgan, Jason Flemyng, Greg Wise, Emma Lowndes, Lara Rossi, Amy James-Kelly, Laura Checkley. 2020. 112 mins. Comedy.



Shields Green (Okeniyi), who goes by "Emperor," is a slave in the American south as the nation teeters on the brink of the Civil War. The descendant of African kings, Emperor is defined by his rebellious streak but has learned to control his nature in order to survive his master's evil, disciplining hand. As slave uprisings begin to rekindle the fire in him, his son is targeted by their master's whip, and Emperor decides to take action in order to save his family. Escaping to the north to join the rebel abolitionists, Emperor confronts Confederate soldiers and impresses the likes of John Brown (Cromwell), Levi Coffin (Dern) and Frederick Douglass (Lennix), with the kind of nothing-to-lose nerve that defined a revolutionary era in American history.

Director: Mark Amin. Stars: Dayo Okeniyi, James Cromwell, Kat Graham, Bruce Dern, M.C. Gainey, Ben Robson, Keean Johnson, Harry Lennix. 2020. 99 mins. Action.
