‘CinemAddicts’ Episode 81: ‘A Quiet Place’ And ‘Sweet Country’

Episode 81 of CinemAddicts is up, and though we do cover a slew of films, I’m selfishly happy that co-host Anderson Cowan has set up a bunch of dates for his feature film Groupers. Dates/venues can be found on his site, and Cowan opens up the program briefly discussing about his flick’s state of the state. Speaking of flicks . . . 

During the show Anderson and I talk about a couple of movies that we’re really psyched about (I think both of us are plunking down money to see A Quiet Place). Anderson is really psyched about You Were Never Really Here, as he has been touting the talent of director Lynne Ramsay ever since being blown away by We Need To Talk About Kevin.

On my end, the film to keep an eye out for is Sweet Country, a near perfect drama/Western about an Aboriginal man named Sam (a memorable Hamilton Morris) who murders a man in self-defense. Initially forced to go on the run in Australia’s outback with his wife, Sam must make the fateful decision on whether or not to return home and face the music. Co-starring Bryan Brown and Sam Neill, this flick (opening April 6) absolutely blew me away.

Another flick which threw me for a loop (in a good way) is The House of Tomorrow, a comedy-drama about a sheltered teen named Sebastian (Asa Butterfield) who bonds with a punk rock enthusiast (Alex Wolff) and forms a band. Raised by his grandmother (Ellen Burstyn) to live a life that’s immersed in the philosophies/theories of Buckminster Fuller, Sebastian is yearning to experience something new – and this literal “punk rock” attitude leads him to an extremely memorable and resonant adventure. The House of Tomorrow opens in theaters April 27 in New York and Los Angeles (with a national rollout the succeeding week.


Along with being the sole talent and energy behind CinemAddicts, Anderson also delivers reviews of Game Night, Unsane, Red Sparrow, Annihilation, and Thoroughbreds. I also give a quick take on the Sharon Stone romantic comedy All I Wish (which I also dug).
