Movies having their first run at Campbeltown Picture House this week are Coco PG, Molly’s Game 15 and Downsizing 15.
3D computer animated musical fantasy, Coco, introduces the voice of newcomer Anthony Gonzalez, as Miguel who despite his family’s baffling generations-old ban on music, dreams of becoming a musician.
Desperate to prove his talent, Miguel finds himself in the stunning and colourful Land of the Dead following a mysterious chain of events.
Former Olympic-class skier, Molly Bloom, ran the world’s most exclusive high-stakes poker game for a decade before 17 FBI agents, wielding automatic weapons, closed her down.
Molly’s Game, based on her true story, explores her players including Hollywood royalty, sports stars, business titans and finally, unbeknownst to her, the Russian mob.
Her only ally was defence lawyer Charlie Jaffey, who learned that there was much more to Molly than the tabloids’ tittle tattle.
Downsizing is about shrinking a couple by science and not swapping the family home for a flat.
It follows a kindly occupational therapist who is shrunken to five inches tall. It allows him and his wife to help save the planet and afford a nice lifestyle at the same time.
