Disney Plus: These 8 films are worth seeing
You may not have been suggested or seen the eight films on Disney Plus. But they are worth every look, third and fourth look:
1. “Nomadland” (2021)
Fern (Frances McDorman) travels the western United States in her converted van after losing her husband and home in Nevada. Financed with various small jobs, she earns money on the way and gets to know many people in the process. After all, she’s not the only nomad who roams around and lives in parks and campgrounds. But living with such flexibility also comes with many challenges…
Chloé Zhao’s “Nomadland” is an award-winning film, including an Oscar in 2021 for Best Picture and Best Director. Frances McDorman also won the Golden Boy for Best Actress.
2. The Last Duel (2021)
The beautiful Marguerite de Carrouges (Jodie Comer) accuses Jacques Le Gris (Adam Driver) of raping her. Her husband Jean de Carrouges (Matt Damon) sees no other way out and challenges the accused to a duel of life and death: God should decide on truth and lies.
The film is based on a historical duel between Jean de Carrouges and Jacques Le Gris. It took place in December 1386 and is the last legal duel of this kind in the history of France. The special thing about the film is the fact that it illuminates all three perspectives of the three main characters. The Male View was written by Adam Driver and Matt Damon. Nicole Holofcener wrote the perspective of Marguerite de Carrouges.
85 percent positive reviews, average 7.3 out of 9 points (from 276 reviews) on Rotten Tomatoes.
3. “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” (2018)
Mildred Hayes (“Nomadland” actress Frances McDomand) takes on the police after her daughter is raped. She finds that she is not doing her job properly. That’s why she put up three provocative billboards near her home in Missouri. To see: hostilities against police chief William Willoughby (Woody Harrelson). She won’t give up until she feels justice is done.
Frances McDomand also received an Oscar for Best Actress for her role as Mildred Hayes. Sam Rockwell also won Best Supporting Actor for his role as Officer Jason Dixon.
- 90 percent positive reviews, average 8.4 out of 10 points (from 409 reviews) on Rotten Tomatoes.
4 “Why don’t we… kill the boss?” (1980)
The comedy with the long German title “Why actually… don’t we kill the boss” is originally called “Nine To Five” and is about three women who are unhappily working in their company: Judy Bernly (Jane Fonda), who has been for years works there and doesn’t get promoted because she’s a woman, Doralee Rhodes (Dolly Parton) who is sexually harassed and harassed by her boss, and “new girl” Violet Newstead (Lily Tomlin) who is shocked by the everyday harassment, rumors and dealing with employees.
The three women dream of seeing their boss dead. But who could have guessed that her fantasy could very soon become reality… Even more than 40 years later, this work is worth seeing and is probably still part of everyday life in some offices.
- 83 percent positive reviews, average 7 out of 10 points (from 41 reviews) on Rotten Tomatoes
5 Boys Don’t Cry (1999)
Boys Don’t Cry is based on the true story of Brendon Teena, a young trans man who was humiliated, raped and murdered out of hatred in 1993. The work, starring Hilary Swank, does not represent 100 percent of the real events, but it still gives a sense of what happened and provides impetus to confront the hatred of transgender people.
- 86 percent positive reviews, based on 33 reviews (according to Metacritic)
6 “Everything Routine” (1999)
We already recommended “All Routine” in our article “15 Movies That Will Help You Wind Down”. Since the work is now available from Disney Plus Star, it should not be missing from this list either. It’s about Peter Gibbons (Ron Livingston) who hates his job and feels like he’s having the worst day of his life all the time. Only if the hypnosis is not completed does he finally change his situation. However, this escalates a bit…
- 68 percent positive reviews, based on 31 reviews (according to Metacritic)
7 “The War of the Roses” (1989)
There is also escalation in “The War of the Roses” by and starring Danny DeVito. Here he plays a divorce lawyer who tells the story of two married couples who are at war with each other. We watch as the love of Oliver Rose (Michael Douglas) and Barbara (Kathleen Turner) turns to pure hatred, culminating in a violent, merciless, all-destructive struggle.
- 79 percent positive reviews, based on 17 reviews (according to Metacritic)
8 “Me and Earl and the Girl” (2015)
Undeservedly, “Me and Earl and the Girl” received less attention in Germany in 2015 than the tragic comedy deserved. Thomas Mann (“Project X”) plays 17-year-old Greg, who, with his boyfriend Earl (RJ Cyler), spends their days making short films that pay homage to their favorite films. One day his mother (Connie Britton) urges him to spend time with his classmate Rachel (Olivia Cooke) after she was recently diagnosed with leukemia. From then on, the three teenagers spend their time together with all the ups and downs.
- 74 percent positive reviews based on 40 reviews (according to Metacritic)
The adult series Pam & Tommy also recently started on Star. Also, these Disney Plus series are the most anticipated in 2022.
