Spling's Galileo Pick of the Week: Boyhood


Spling's Pick of the Week - Boyhood at Kirstenbosch

BOYHOOD @ KIRSTENBOSCH (11 Jan)

At almost three hours, Boyhood is a monumental drama. The filmmakers could have gone to much darker places, but turn this film into something heartwarming and inspiring... opting to celebrate rather than berate this thing we call life. As a fly-on-the-wall drama, it's fascinating to see a slice of Texan suburban life and the daily struggles of an ordinary middle class family. So fascinating that we're completely absorbed and entertained by the characters, through all their highs and lows.

Boyhood deserves full credit for its ambitious feat, taking a small budget and creating something truly inspiring and memorable. It's a wonderful showcase for Ellar Coltrane, it cements Richard Linklater as an auteur and brings audiences a fresh, genuine, honest, insightful and beautifully executed drama and time capsule for the ages.

This Oscar-winning drama is showing under the stars at The Galileo Open Air Cinema.

It's one of those films that has the ability to capture our imagination, immerse us in a hidden world and warm our hearts... and that's the magic of this film - they're just toys!

Spling's Galileo Pick of the Week: Love Actually


Spling's Pick of the Week - Love Actually at Meerendal

LOVE ACTUALLY @ MEERENDAL (23 Dec)

Love Actually is heartwarming, funny and tender... a film that embodies the Christmas spirit. Richard Curtis knows how to tug at heart strings and engross us in uplifting human comedy drama. Backed by an all-star cast, we're entertained by this family holiday romance, which has been copied but never bettered.

The feeling of familiarity you have with the characters, the airport sentiment and tales of love in all its intricacies is bound to soften even the hardest of hearts. British schmaltz has never been this enjoyable and with Bill Nighy keeping it real as a rock star, this one's worth dusting off for the holiday season.

Spling's Galileo Pick of the Week: The Jungle Book


Spling's Pick of the Week - The Jungle Book at Kelvin Grove

THE JUNGLE BOOK @ KELVIN GROVE (18 Dec)

While the beloved 1967 Disney fairytale probably has a special place in most people's hearts, few would have guessed that it would be reimagined as a much darker "live–action" adaptation of Rudyard Kipling's books. Apart from being an extraordinary achievement in film-making, Iron Man director Jon Favreau has necessitated this "remake" by virtue of its more impactful adaptation. The original Disney classic gets tribute as various scenes echo in this version, however it's much more immediate and dangerous.

It holds the same enjoyment and entertainment factor, despite playing down the musical and comedy aspects, yet managing to get much more from its audience in terms of suspense and sheer wonder. It may not have the emotional resonance you'd expect from such a coming-of-age fable, but as a spectacle it's a marvel and will stay with you for days. Read more...
