The Dallas Buyers Club 9/10The acting, the story, everything about this movie is brilliant. It's about a HIV diagnosed man who goes to great lengths to survive and help others when the hospitals, governments and pharmaceutical companies can't.
Maleficent is the other side of the story of Sleeping Beauty. If your a fairy tale lover like myself, you will love this. The movie is about what happens when your Prince Charming ends up being a total pig. It's Maleficent's journey from getting over hatred and physical trauma to finding ones self and falling in love in the most unexpected way.
Philomena 9/10Judi Dench's character Philomena is a woman who falls pregnant out of wedlock and is put in a Catholic home for girls. Her son is adopted out to rich Americans and the movie is about her trying to find him 50 years later. Judi Dench is amazing and I loved her character Philomena. Philomena is a lot stronger than I would be. At the end of the movie she forgives the Nun's that have betrayed her, not something I think I would have been able to do for quite some time.
