London Film Festival
It's the 12th of October and today is the first day of the London Film Festival! As you may know, I live in the beautiful British capital and I am so excited for this event! I already bought tickets for 5 shows:
The machine that kills bad people- Friday 14th Oct: Rossellini's rarely-seen satirical fantasy, now restored, about a photographer whose magic camera has the power to kill the greedy and the corrupt.
Restless- Sunday 16th October: An affecting and delicate teen romance which confirms Gus Van Sant as one of Hollywood’s most astute and sensitive chroniclers of American youth.
Carnage- Wendsday 19th Oct: The Brooklyn bourgeoisie under the microscope in Roman Polanski's beautifully acted adaptation of The God of Carnage.
Take Shelter- Sun 23rd Oct: An extraordinary tale of ordinary madness.
Martha Marcy May Marlene- Monday 24th Oct: Newcomer Elizabeth Olsen stars in this atmospheric story of a young woman recently escaped from a cult-like commune.
+ I will be queing for Shame or 50/50 on Saturday, the 15th of October; depends how lucky I am and where I can get tickets!Wish me luck!

I did wanted to see other movies like A dangerous method, Wuthering Heights, Ides of March or Descendants, but I couldn't schedule them in or I couldn't get tickets!

Hope you have a great day!
