A buxom new Bond girl, a taboo romance and a thriller that will truly get under your skin are among the TauBu Girls’ November flick picks…
- Skyfall, Nov. 9: TauBu Girl Jamile was first in line for this one. James Bond is back on the big screen and this time, cinema’s favorite spy must keep a computer drive with a list of British agents from being used against them. In a botched shot by a fellow operative, Bond (Daniel Craig) takes a bullet, falls into the river below and is believed dead. M, head of the Foreign Intelligence wing of Her Majesty’s Secret Service, is told to pack it in, but she won’t budge until the matter of the missing drive is resolved – never mind that massive explosion that happens as she returns to headquarters. Suddenly, Bond is back from the formerly-presumed-dead and hot on the trail of the drive-swiping victim, who turns out to be a blast from M’s past. We love the plot, but we’re really stoked about the motorcycle chase scene along unnervingly narrow, roofline walkways that features Freestyle Motocross champ Robbie “Maddo” Maddison as Agent 007′s stunt double.
- In Their Skin, Nov. 9: TauBu Girl Megan loves a great psycho-thriller. After the accidental death of their six-year-old daughter, the Hughes family jettisons their busy upscale suburban life and takes refuge in their isolated lakefront cottage. If you can call it a “cottage,” that is. This place is massive. Anyway, hoping that some company will provide a comforting distraction from their grief, they invite their friendly neighbors over for dinner. Trouble is, their neighbors are not only obsessed with their perception of the Hughes’ perfect life, and they’re certifiably crazy. Selma Blair, Rachel Miner, Joshua Close and James D’Arcy star.
- Anna Kerenina, Nov. 16: Ever the romantic, TauBu Girl Kimberley is waiting with baited breath for Anna Kerenina, an epic love story based on a Leo Tolstoy book. Set in late-19th-century Russia high-society, the film follows Anna (Keira Knightley), an achingly beautiful aristocrat as she falls helplessly in love with the affluent Count Vronsky. Trouble is, she’s very much married to the wealthy and well-connected but emotionless Alexi Kerenin (Jude Law) who warns his wife, “You may, by indiscretion, give the world occasion to talk about you.” But women in hot, illicit love never listen. Ergo, Anna’s affair erupts into an international scandal. Taboo, indeed.
