3 Things Worth Watching This Weekend

3 Things Worth Watching This Weekend

Christopher Nolan’s war epic Dunkirk (which has received soaring’reviews), the next Breaking Bad (thank you Netflix) and Helen Mirren’s finest hour as a royal are all worth seeing this weekend.?


?ON THE BIG SCREEN: DUNKIRK

Nolan’s much-anticipated €150 million epic?takes in history: In May 1940, in the early days of World War II, some 400,000 British and Allied troops were flanked and entrapped by Germany on the beaches of Dunkirk in northern France. So how is it that 330,000 French, British, Belgian and Dutch soldiers were safely evacuated? It’s a remarkable story turned into an incredible, visually stunning war film that is the best we’ve seen in years. Cillian Murphy and Tom Hardy star.

Dunkirk is in?cinemas nationwide now

ON TV: THE QUEEN

This underrated movie is Helen Mirren’s finest hour. Her enigmatic performance as Queen Elizabeth won her an Oscar, dramatising as well as examining?the events surrounding the death of Princess Diana, who died tragically in 1997 in a car crash in Paris. The focus here surrounds in the relationship between the monarch and Prime Minister Tony Blair, who have differing views on how to handle the situation. Blair empathised with the public as they mourned; the Queen was far more reserved or as some have said, far too reserved, given the tragedy. There’s an excellent supporting cast, including a solid?performance from Michael Sheen but Mirren steals every scene.

The Queen airs on Sunday, at 9.30PM on RTE One?

ON NETFLIX:?OZARK

The Byrdes, husband and wife Marty (Jason Bateman) and Wendy (Laura Linney), their teenage kids Charlotte and Jonah are for all intents and purposes an ordinary family. Well?not quite. Average save for Marty’s job: The top money launderer for the second largest drug cartel in Mexico. Sound familiar? Marty is Chicago financial advisor, who has been quietly laundering money for a drug?kingpin but must quickly uproot his family and move the operation to The?Ozarks,?after his partner is caught cheating the business. If you miss Breaking Bad, this may fill that hole.

Ozark is available on Netflix now
