If you are a film lover going on a London old city tour during the month of October, then you can count yourself lucky. This is because the city of London is hosting one of the most prestigious and immensely popular film festivals, the BFI London Film Festival, in the month of October.
You will not only be able to see plenty of celebrities from all over the world during the film festival, but also catch the screening some of the most anticipated films of the year. However, you can expect quite a crowd art at the venue, which means that it is better to have a plan on what films you want to watch while you are in city.
You will need to accept the fact that you will not be able to catch the screening of all the movies. So, here are a few films that you shouldn’t miss while you are on a London old city tour.
Call Me by Your Name
One of the most popular and highly anticipated films of 2017 that you should definitely add to your watchlist is “Call Me by Your Name”. The same sex love story starring Armie Hammer and the debutant, Timothée Chalamet is nothing but an unfeasibly photogenic coming-of-age tale. Luca Guadagnino, who is famous for his works such as “I Am Love” and “A Bigger Splash”, is the director of the film.
The Killing of a Sacred Deer
Colin Farrell and Nicole Kidman once again share their screen after the highly critically acclaimed 2017 flick, “The Beguiled”. The second English language film of the arthouse director, Yorgos Lanthimos is harrowing and surreal. Moreover, “The Killing of a Sacred Deer” has already regarded as a far better film than “The Lobster”, which was the previous work of Yorgos Lanthimos. The plot revolves around a successful surgeon who tries to welcome a troubled teen to his picture perfect family.
Battle of the Sexes
If you were wondering what would Emma Stone do to follow up the success of an all-dancing, an all-singing, and Oscar conquering role, then the answer is that she has swapped the tap shoes for tennis shoes to portray the role of women’s champion Billie Jean King in “Battle of the Sexes”. The movie tells the true story of the historic tennis match between serial hustler Bobby Riggs (Steve Carell) and Billie Jean King.
