With March almost over, there’s a whole bunch of interesting movies coming up in April 2015 which needs to go into your ‘must see’ list. Let’s begin:

#10. The Water Diviner (24th April)

the water diviner

An Australian man travels to Turkey after the Battle of Gallipoli to try and locate his three missing sons reported missing in action, where he forges a relationship with the beautiful Turkish woman who owns the hotel in which he stays. Holding onto hope, he must travel across the war-torn landscape with the help of a Turkish Officer, himself a veteran of the battles. The movie premise itself seems interesting overall. You’ve got to admit that Russel Crowe gets better with age, his acting at least, and that’s totally worth having this on your watch list for April 2015.

Not to mention this is Russel Crowe’s Directorial debut.

Director: Russell Crowe

Writers: Andrew Knight, Andrew Anastasios

Stars: Jai Courtney, Olga Kurylenko, Russell Crowe

#9. Little Boy (24th April)

Little Boy
A 7-year old boy is willing to do whatever it takes to end World War II so he can bring his father home. The story reveals the indescribable love a father has for his little boy and the love a son has for his father.
This is certainly going to be one where you’ll need to break out the tissues. It promises to be an emotional ride, and whenever there’s a child involved in one, you’re going to cry. Not to mention Kevin James and Emily Watson who can bring some serious emotional drama.
Director: Alejandro Monteverde

Writers: Alejandro Monteverde, Pepe Portillo

Stars: Kevin James, Emily Watson, Tom Wilkinson

#8. The Age of Adaline (24th April)

Age of Adeline
A young woman, born at the turn of 20th century, is rendered ageless after an accident. After years of a solitary life, she meets a man who might be worth losing her immortality.
I don’t know what to make of this movie just yet, but I do know for sure I want to watch it. Like so many ageless, or quick aging themes, this one promises to be a tear jerker as well. Blake Lively can act for sure, and we’ve got Harrison Ford in there for good measure, so be sure to have this on your watch list.

Director: Lee Toland Krieger

Writers: J. Mills Goodloe (screenplay), Salvador Paskowitz (screenplay)

Stars: Harrison Ford, Blake Lively, Michiel Huisman

 

#7. True Story (30th April)

True Story
The relationship between journalist Michael Finkel and Christian Longo, an FBI Most Wanted List murderer who for years lived outside the U.S. under Finkel’s name.
If Rupert Goold and James Franco won’t put this on your list, then you’ve still got good taste. However, I want to watch this because it’s based on a true story, and has a “Catch me if you can”-esque story line. You gotta love those.

Director: Rupert Goold

Writers: Michael Finkel (memoir), Rupert Goold (screenplay)

Stars: James Franco, Jonah Hill, Felicity Jones

#6. Child 44 (17th April)

child 44
A disgraced member of the military police investigates a series of nasty child murders during the Stalin-era Soviet Union.
The Soviet Union, Tom Hardy together, based on a novel by Tom Rob Smith? I’m sold. It’s Daniel Espinosa at the helm that worries me a little. However, the plot and the story line seem very intriguing.

Director: Daniel Espinosa

Writers: Richard Price (screenplay), Tom Rob Smith (novel)

Stars: Tom Hardy, Joel Kinnaman, Noomi Rapace

#5. Desert Dancer (10th April)

Afshin Ghaffarian risks everything to start a dance company amidst his home country of Iran’s politically volatile climate and the nation’s ban on dancing.

It’s one of those movies of liberation, fighting against all odds, and overcoming the impossible to make your dream come true – sort of movie. It’s worth a watch, not because of Frida Pinto, but because it’s based on the life story of Afshin Ghaffarian.

Director: Richard Raymond

Writers: Jon Croker (screenplay), Afshin Ghaffarian (based on the life story of)

Stars: Freida Pinto, Nazanin Boniadi, Tom Cullen

#4. Ex Machina (10th April)

ex machina
A young programmer is selected to participate in a breakthrough experiment in artificial intelligence by evaluating the human qualities of a breathtaking female A.I.
This is also in our most anticipated movie list of 2015. Don’t miss this movie. Miss the rest of them above..but this is one you’ll want to have on your must watch list for April 2015.

Director: Alex Garland

Writer: Alex Garland

Stars: Alicia Vikander, Domhnall Gleeson, Oscar Isaac

#3. The Longest Ride (10th April)

The longest Ride
The lives of a young couple intertwine with a much older man as he reflects back on a lost love while he’s trapped in an automobile crash. A reflection on life if you will, just when it’s about to be snuffed out, and then some. For those who are following Melissa Benoist, you’ll get a good glimpse of her just before she becomes Super girl. Don’t know why that’s important,  but apparently it is. Either way, the movie is definitely worth watching because it has George Tillman at the helm.

Director: George Tillman Jr.

Writers: Craig Bolotin, Nicholas Sparks (novel)

Stars: Britt Robertson, Melissa Benoist, Scott Eastwood

 #2. Woman in Gold (3rd April)

Maria Altmann, an octogenarian Jewish refugee, takes on the government to recover artwork she believes rightfully belongs to her family.

Director: Simon Curtis

Writers: Alexi Kaye Campbell, E. Randol Schoenberg (life story)

Stars: Helen Mirren, Ryan Reynolds, Daniel Brühl

#1. Furious 7 (3rd April)

Furious 7
Deckard Shaw seeks revenge against Dominic Toretto and his family for the death of his brother.
Nothing more to say about why this is our #1 movie for April 2015. The 7th and possibly the last installment of the Fast and Furious series, where we’ll get to see Paul Walker for 1 last time. Everything about Furious 7 seems to be going great, the previews, the trailers are all pointing towards a fantastic ride (no pun intended).

Director: James Wan

Writers: Chris Morgan, Gary Scott Thompson (characters)

Stars: Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson
