“All’s fair in love and war.”
It’s a phrase we’ve all heard before and is weirdly applicable to this month’s movie releases. Coming soon we have fascinating stories of war and love (just as gruesome).
For the political junkie: “The Unknown Known”
“All generalizations are false. Including this one.” A bold and intriguing way to tease a film about former defense secretary, Donald Rumsfeld. A polarizing politician, this documentary is a spinoff of Rumsfeld’s 2011 autobiography, “Known and Unknown: A Memoir.” This is one of many recent political documentaries—“Mitt” was released earlier this year and before that we saw “Our Nixon,” “Manhunt” and “The World According to Dick Cheney.” So does this film actually reveal the “truth” and answers we’re looking for on the War on Terror? Or is its purpose purely entertainment, void of new revelations? We suggest taking everything with a grain of salt regardless of your political views.
Release Date: April 4
For the soldier: “The Railway Man”
Not for the faint of heart, “The Railway Man” looks equally graphic as it is emotional. Based on a true story, the movie tells the story of a victim from World War II’s “Death Railway” that confronts his former tormentor years later. But does facing your past demons bring you peace of mind or merely stir up dark times? We’ll have to see. It looks like Colin Firth will do this story justice.
Release Date: April 11
For the cheated: “The Other Woman”
Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. And nothing says revenge like ganging up on your husband with his mistresses to plan a major takedown. Unrealistic? Ehh, maybe. Funny? Looks like it. Love is a battlefield and Leslie Mann, Cameron Diaz and Kate Upton are out to win the war.
Release Date: April 25
