In Issue:

Noted film critic Bill Newcott reviews movies that appeal to more than just 14-year-olds.

Queen Victoria and Abdul

Victoria and Abdul. Focus Features

Victoria and Abdul (Sept. 22)

Judi Dench is Queen Victoria; Bollywood superstar Ali Fazal is the young clerk from India who, against all odds, becomes the old queen’s closest friend and confidant. As you’d expect in this true story, the denizens of the Court of St. James are not amused.

 

Jake Gyllenhaal

Stronger. Lionsgate

Stronger (Sept. 22)

It was one of the most harrowing images of the Boston Marathon bombing: Jeff Bauman being rushed from the scene in a wheelchair, both of his legs missing. Jake Gyllenhaal plays Bauman, whose life took several unexpected turns after that fateful day.

 

Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling

Blade Runner 2049. Scope Features

Blade Runner 2049 (Oct. 6)

Thirty years after the original, Harrison Ford is back as Rick Deckard, only this time instead of hunting down renegade robots in a dystopian Los Angeles, he’s the one being sought by a young cop (Ryan Gosling) who needs Rick’s help to save what’s left of society.
