Here’s a New Year Resolution for ya. Power of Pop will be expanding our film coverage in 2015 to highlight the movies we think PoP visitors will be interested in. Good stuff, no fluff (cannot bluff!) or something like that…
Anyways, here’s a couple of films we are interested in for January 2015.
The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Them
(Written & directed by Ned Benson)
New Year’s Day
Ignore the gimmicky title – this has nothing to do with The Beatles. The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby is the collective title of three films subtitled Him, Her & Them respectively. As you can guess, Him and Her are told from the perspectives of the male (James McAvoy) and female (Jessica Chastain) characters accordingly. Them is the compromise, a combination of Him and Her into one movie – which probably makes much more sense from a commercial point of view but less so, from an artistic standpoint. Presumably, moviegoers who enjoyed Them will then want to watch Him and Her, which will be released in the latter part of 2015. Fascinating premise, nonetheless.
