Weekly Watch List

Sharing Is Caring

30 April

We’ll be sharing cinema together again soon, but until then, Palace Cinemas wants to share some of our film favourites with our Weekly Watch List.  Here’s to sharing and staying safe.


LOST IN TRANSLATION (2003) | Sofia Coppola

Sofia Coppola crafts a humorous but powerfully moving story about an out of work actor and a neglected young woman who find solace within each other through a shared bemused outlook upon Tokyo and their lives. LOST IN TRANSLATION showcases incredible performances from both Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson and solidified Sofia Coppola in the world of cinema.

“How instinctively we react — and connect — when a film captures a feeling that is all too common, and all too real.” Peter Howell, Toronto Star.

LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL (1997) | Roberto Benigni

When a Jewish librarian and his son become victims of the Holocaust, he uses his will, humour and imagination to shield his son from the dangers of their reality. An absolute classic LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL bursts with charm and offers hope in the face of horror.

“Dares to laugh in the face of the unthinkable. And because Benigni can be heart-rending without a trace of the maudlin, it works.” Josh Maslin, New York Times.

Rent it on iTunes, Google Play or Youtube or stream on Stan.


A PERFECT WORLD (1993) | Clint Eastwood.

Clint Eastwood stars as Red Garnett, a Texas Ranger on a manhunt for an escaped criminal (Kevin Costner) who has kidnapped a young boy and taken across Texas to escape. Clint Eastwood delivers an ambiguous, smart and gritty crime drama, featuring an impeccable performance by Kevin Costner and a breakout performance by T.J. Lowther.

“A Perfect World is evidence that Hollywood is still capable of producing the kinds of moving, intelligent movies that have increasingly become the province of independent filmmakers.” James Berardinelli, ReelViews.

Rent it on iTunes, Google Play or Youtube.


REAR WINDOW (1954) | Alfred Hitchcock

James Stewart stars as a wheelchair-bound photographer who spies on his neighbours from his apartment and becomes convinced one of them has committed murder. One of Alfred Hitchcock’s masterpieces, REAR WINDOW features all the charm of classic Hollywood in a landmark psychological thriller

“Rear Window lovingly invests in suspense all through the film, banking it in our memory, so that when the final payoff arrives, the whole film has been the thriller equivalent of foreplay.” Roger Ebert, Chicago Reader.

Rent it on iTunes, Google Play or Youtube.


MOTHER (2009) | Bong Joon Ho


Writer/director Bong Joon Ho crafts an impeccable thriller that follows a mother desperately searching for the killer who has framed her son for a horrific murder. The film seamlessly moves through genre including family drama, horror, comedy and provides a deft grasp of tone with striking visuals synonymous with the master director.

“Bold, unpredictable and quietly devastating, Mother is Bong’s first masterpiece.” Tom Huddleston, Time Out.

Rent it on iTunes, Google Play or Youtube.
