Thursday Movie Picks - 2022 Releases
It's 2023, and it's another year of Thursday Movie Picks over at Wandering Through The Shelves. It's crazy how many years she's been at this, and because it IS tough to think of new themes year after year, this year it's biweekly. We're starting off the theme by talking about 2022 releases. I decided to go with 3 foreign films I saw last year that I really enjoyed.
1) The Quiet Girl - Mostly in the Irish language, this film is about a shy young girl, lost within her own big family who goes to live with distant relatives she's never met for the summer. It's one of the biggest surprises of the year for me. I adored it.
2) Broker - This wasn't South Korea's submission to the Oscars this year, and I wish it was. It's funny and heartfelt, and yes I cried at the end.
3) Saint Omer - I love a good courtroom drama, and this French film is almost exclusively told through a trial. The actresses involved are excellent. It's a tough story to listen to, but definitely worth a watch.
