This week at the movies
Horror? Thrills? Jewels? This week there’s a little bit of everything to choose from and luckily, less Hollywood fluff. Conveniently tucked into the same month as the 60th anniversary of Evita’s death, ‘Atraco’ premieres, a suspense film about the stealing of Eva Perón’s jewels in Spain.
In addition, other interesting picks of the week include Intocables, a French film that looks at the life of an aristocrat after he becomes quadriplegic from a paragliding accident, causing a stir within his social circles when he hires a young man from the suburban areas of his city to be his caretaker.
For a little the horrific side of Hollywood, try the Chernobyl Diaries, as a group of young people get taken on a tour of the abandoned city Pripyat, the former home to the workers of the Chernobyl nuclear reactor, before coming across devilish ghosts, ghouls and such things.
