Thursday Movie Picks: Dark Academia
This week's theme from Wandering Through The Shelves is Dark Academia. I'm not going to lie, I had to Google that. It's not a subculture of film I've heard mentioned very often. After educating myself quickly, here's what I came up with.
1) Kill Your Darlings - This movie is a fictional take on the poets of the beat generation. I love it. There are so many wonderful actors in this and If I had my way, I'd be throwing awards at everyone in this left and right.
2) Jane Eyre (2011) - When I read the description of "Dark Academia" I thought of this first, but I wasn't sure if it exactly qualified. Since Jane is a governess, I decided to go for it.
3) Cracks - So I hated this movie, but I think it fits. It's about an elite boarding school in the 40's and it wastes the talents of Juno Temple and Eva Green.
