Joyful Noise is a funny and inspirational story of music, hope, love and renewal. The small town of Pacashau, Georgia, has fallen on hard times, but the people are counting on the Divinity Church C oir to lift their spirits by winning the National Joyful Noise Competition. The choir has always known how to sing in harmony, but the discord between its two leading ladies now threatens to tear them apart. Their
newly appointed director, Vi Rose Hill, stubbornly wants to stick with their tried-and-true traditional style, while the fiery G.G. Sparrow thinks tried-and-true translates to tired-and-old.
The Iron Lady
Directed by: Phyllida Lloyd
Starring: Meryl Streep
The most striking aspect of Phyllida Lloyds Margaret Thatcher biopic The Iron Lady (2011) is in its treading-oneggshells approach to dealing with the politics that made
the grocers daughter from Grantham such a polarising figure. Whilst Lloyd has since made it explicitly clear that that was her intended approach in depicting the Iron Lady (played magnificently by Academy Award winner Meryl Streep), those of us who grew up in a country divided by the ominous shadow cast by Thatcher may feel a little shortchanged.
Unlikely friendship around a secret writing project - one that breaks societys rules and puts them all at risk. Filled with poignancy, humour and hope - and complete
with compelling, never-before-seen bonus features - The Help is a timeless, universal and triumphant story about the ability to create change.
