2. The Big Sick:
Kumail Nanjiani is a Pakistani American man and a struggling stand-up comedian. One day he meets an American girl and eventually falls in love with her. Soon they both start dating each other. Since Kumail’s family is Pakistani, they want Kumail to marry a Pakistani girl. Therefore, Kumail had to keep his relationship secret. Now Kumail must tell his family about Emily and deal with cultural clashes.
Kumail Nanjiani and his wife Emily Gordon wrote the screenplay of The Big Sick by themselves. It is one of the most beautiful screenplays I have seen on screen, not to mention the film was nominated for Best Original Screenplay in 90th Academy Awards. The film is somewhat based on their real-life story. So, I think you should watch this film, not just because it is good but to know more about a different culture.
3. The Shape of Water:
The Shape of Water tells a fictional story of the ‘60s. It follows Elisa Esposito who is a cleaner at a secret government laboratory. She is mute, therefore, everyone refuses to be friends with her. One day Colonel Richard discovers a strange creature, captures him, and takes him to the facility for further study. Suffering from loneliness, Elisa begins to secretly approach the creature and fall in love with it. Will they be able to continue their relationship further?
As the lead character of the film is mute and his lover is not a human, much of the film relies on sign language. So, you will have to pay attention to the visual style of the film. The cast, direction, script, production design, and visual effects, all these elements make this film a true masterpiece. Although the film lost the 90th Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay to The Big Sick, it won other six awards including Best Picture.
Carol (2015) is the story of a young woman in her late ‘20s falls develops a fondness for an older woman. The film follows Therese Belivet, a young photographer and a worker of a store in Manhattan. Whereas Carol Aird is a middle-aged woman going through a divorce. After several meetings, Therese starts developing feelings for Carol. Will she get love in return?
It is a romantic as well as very emotional film. Moreover, its intensity keeps escalating as the film progresses. Carol is a wonderful romance drama portraying the love of two women. The characters are so well written that totally justify the story. This film is a 120-minute emotional ride of love.
Her (2013) depicts the story of a writer who grows romantic feelings for his assistant Samantha, an artificial intelligence. Theodore Twombly is an emotionally broken writer who is depressed over his failed marriage. He buys an artificial intelligence to help him with writing. Over the period, he develops feelings for his AI assistant Samantha. Are his feelings for the computer system legitimate?
It is 2013’s one of the best romantic films. Her film has won the 86th Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay. Joaquin Pheonix’s performance and voice-over by Scarlett Johnson are the two best things of this film. If you think Joker is the only great performance of Joaquin’s life then I request you to watch this film for once. I am sure you will appreciate his acting in this movie too.
