Set against the clamour and frenzy of New Orleans’ French Quarter, this film follows Mona Lee (Jeon Jong-seo), a young girl with powers of psychic manipulation, as she escapes an institution for “mentally insane adolescents” and takes to the city. Kate Hudson plays stripper Bonnie Belle, who recruits Mona to her place of work and soon has hoodwinked men emptying their wallets.
This might not be the most memorable romcom, but it’s cute and amusing nevertheless. Hitch (Will Smith) is a “dating doctor” who makes a living out of teaching regular guys how to woo their perfect woman. Albert (Kevin James), an unlucky-in-love accountant, is his latest project. When a gossip columnist (Eva Mendes) shows up, however, Hitch’s dating outlook – and cynicism – shift.
Quentin Tarantino’s sensational ninth film is a eulogy for Sharon Tate, the actress murdered by the Manson family – but it’s also a requiem for the Hollywood that vanished at the moment she reached it. Margot Robbie is a warm Tate but Leonardo Dicaprio’s and Brad Pitt’s fading actor and long-time stuntman are the film’s beating heart.
