After a court order sends him to work at a hospice, an ex-criminal strikes up a friendship with a compassionate priest who changes his life.

A Polish Documentary. Yes, sub titles & they speak English.

Q-tips say: Yes we did enjoy it. Q’s are Polish & were raised in a Catholic environment with priests & Nuns for education & religious experiences. Might be a tad slow for some at the beginning but worth while watching.

Mrs. Q says: A simple but impactful enjoyable movie. It doesn’t try too hard to add drama or intrigue to its tale, just allowing the goodness of two people to speak for themselves as they endure hardship and work through one of life’s most harrowing responsibilities.

Q-tips say: Was ok but we enjoyed he Magician’s Elephant more.

Where the crawdads sing

Where the Crawdads Sing tells the story of Kya, an abandoned girl who raised herself to adulthood in the dangerous marshlands of North Carolina. For years, rumors of the “Marsh Girl” haunted Barkley Cove, isolating the sharp and resilient Kya from her community. Drawn to two young men from town, Kya opens herself to a new and startling world; but when one of them is found dead, she is immediately cast by the community as the main suspect. As the case unfolds, the verdict as to what actually happened becomes increasingly unclear, threatening to reveal the many secrets that lay within the marsh.

Q-tips say: Yes, see it! We enjoyed the movie.

The scripting, the dialogue, the scenery choices, the score, has it all of the pieces to make you feel its great pacing & progression. An old-school murder mystery primarily told as a courtroom drama, the paperback adaptation entertains from start to finish.

Ocean boy

Watch trailer for Ocean Boy

Set in the late 1980s, Ocean Boy is told through the eyes of a 13-year-old boy, Rockit. As he grapples to understand why his Mum’s not coming home, Rockit embarks on a magical holiday with his father, Bosch, only to discover they’re actually running from the law. Rockit finds a soulmate and then teenage love with Ash Ash, but it’s the ocean that gives him the security and calm he yearns from his parents. Ultimately Rockit is a boy held by nature, a young man who wins our hearts and respect as his story unfolds. Filmed at iconic Byron Bay, against the canvas of Australia’s famous east coast surf beaches and rain forests, Ocean Boy is a raw and unapologetic exploration of unconscious parenting and the deeper themes of love and relationships.

Q-tips say: It wasn’t exactly what we thought it would be. But some might enjoy this movie. This movie starts off as a movie about a drug dealer on the run with his son in tow quickly loses both its shape and its momentum. The  lovely locales and nifty surfing footage aren’t enough to save this meandering Australian coming-of-age tale.
