Film 2011

Now that 2011 has opened with a bang! We look to what films will be opening early this year. And now with the awards season approaching, the industry heavy weights will be deciding what to vote for (and what to wear). The obvious contenders, are the highly anticipated King's Speech, Black Swan and a personal favourite; Blue Valentine, which I was lucky enough to attend the premiere in Cannes during the festival.
One other film caught my eye - the story of a 14 year old girl, raised by her ex-CIA father, to be a cold-hearted killing machine - it's a must-see. Especially with such a talented cast and crew.
Saoirse Ronan (Atonement, The Lovely Bones) as the 14 year old, Eric Bana as her father, Cate Blanchett and director Joe Wright (Atonement, Pride & Prejudice) and screenplay by David Farr (Spooks).

I would watch just for Saoirse Ronan's performance!
