With the new decade drawing ever closer, it’s time to look back on some beautiful gems we got in the form of original web films in 2019. So before you blow that party horn, make sure you have got these five films on your already watched list.
- The Irishman – Netflix
Don’t pretend you didn’t see this coming. The Irishman, without a doubt, was the most anticipated film of 2019. With a star cast of Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci and Al Pacino the movie did more than just entice audiences.
Throw in a riveting plot of American organised crime and direction by Martin Scorcese, the film was an instant hit.
2. The Aeronauts – Amazon Prime Video
Produced by Amazon studios itself, the movie, set in 1862, follows the lives of a daredevil balloon pilot and an ambitious meteorologist as they team up together to fly higher than anyone in history.
Starring award-winning duo of Felicity Jones and Eddie Redmayne, The Aeronauts is a must-watch.
3. Marriage Story – Netflix
With six nominations, including Best Motion Picture, Marriage story really set a new bar for comedy-drama films in 2019.
Power-packed performances by Scarlet Johansson and Adam Driver perfectly demonstrate a couple falling apart with beautifully heartbroken grace.
4. Klaus – Netflix
It’s never too late for a Christmas movie and thankfully Klaus has your back. This Spanish comedy film is Netflix’s first original animated feature.
Made by Sergio Pablos in his directorial debut, this heartwarming movie will take you back to your childhood and make you believe in magic all over again.
5. Hala – Apple TV+
Last but not the least, Hala is a coming of age drama film encompassing a mixture of goodness including a great screenplay, excellent cinematography and a beautiful plot which keep you thinking long after the movie is over.
The Sundance film festival nominee is on our list of must-watch 2019 movies.
