Top Movie – Red Road

Went to watch Red Road last night down at the Harbour Lights Cinema in Southampton.

This was a really powerful film set in Glasgow, the cinematography had a very realistic style showing the tenements and estates in Glasgow. Directed by Academy Award winning director Andrea Arnold the film deservedly won the Prix de Jury at Cannes, with an exceptional performance from Kate Dickie as the lead character Jackie portraying the tragic and grief filled CCTV operator.

Would recommend the film to anyone who loves cinema and a powerful story that leaves you guessing all the way through, although not for the prudish.

The film blurb reads.
“Jackie works as a CCTV operator. Each day she watches over a small part of the world, protecting the people living their lives under her gaze. One day a man appears on her monitor, a man she thought she would never see again, a man she never wanted to see again. Now she has no choice, she is compelled to confront him.”

    Sounds like lots of fun. I am not a movie watcher, it is hard for me to sit for a few hours in one place and pay attention.

    Hope your pre-Holidays are colorful!
