Film Pimp’s Summer Film List
Some smart, adult fare to cap off a summer of spectacle and CGI. Enjoy!
Martin (Eric Bana) and Claudia (Rebecca Hall) are lawyers — and ex-lovers — who find themselves put at risk
after they join the defense team for an international terrorist’s trial.
The film centers around a thirtysomething couple (the hilarious Kathryn Hahn and Josh Radnor) living in the
Los Angeles hipster neighborhood Silver Lake dealing with a stale marriage, boredom, and parenting issues.
Throw in letting a sex worker/stripper (Juno Temple) live in their house and the powderkeg is ready to explode.
The film focuses on couple Lyle (Amari Cheatom) and Nina (Trae Harris), two twenty-somethings who spend a rather large portion
of their time together getting high. Nina is a free-spirite tour guide at a local museum, while Lyle holds down a job he absolutely
despises as a repo man for a seedy rent-to-own company.
Set in a future where a failed experiment to stop global warming creates an ice age that kills off all life on the planet except for the inhabitants of the Snowpiercer, a train that travels around the globe and is powered by a sacred perpetual-motion engine. A class system evolves on the train, but a revolution brews.
