BEST FILMS

ANGIE:

1. Lion – Powerful and heartfelt, with beautiful cinematography and a great cast. 
2. Wonder – I cried throughout most of this family film. It may even change your life. 
3. Detroit – This shocking film, which is based on a true story, stays with you long after you have finished watching it.

5. Jasper Jones – A fantastic Australian film that does the mystery, coming-of-age novel justice.
