Must See Movies: April

We here at Reel Steel care about cinema, and as a result we care that you, our readership are going to see the very best that cinema has to offer.

Released April 1st, 2016

This is a gripping one-take thriller following a young woman from Madrid who falls in with a group of four friends while on a night out in Berlin.
Things go from good, to bad, to worse over the course of this 2 hour journey through which we see brilliantly how the central character has to react to fear and exhaustion.
There’s incredible use of music here too.

Eye in The Sky
released April 8th, 2016

A well-reviewed thriller about drone warfare at the Toronto Film Festival last year, before the sad and premature passing of Alan Rickman.
Eye in The Sky will be the last time this great actor will be seen on our screens (his voice is to be heard in the upcoming Alice Through the Looking Glass) and one hopes that the reviews are accurate, and that this proves to be a fitting final performance.  With support from Helen Mirren and Aaron Paul, we hope this is as good as Andrew Niccol’s fantastic drone warfare drama Good Kill, and asks some of the same complex moral questions of its subject.

Midnight Special
released April 8th, 2016

Midnight Special sees director Jeff Nichols once again united with regular collaborator Michael Shannon (Take Shelter) in a story that encompasses science fiction, as Shannon’s character aims to protect his specially empowered son from the attentions of various law enforcement groups and a cult.
The supporting cast of Kirsten Dunst, Joel Edgerton, Adam Driver and Sam Shepard only serves to raise expectations for this film.
