And our ⭐️ TOP PICK ⭐️ ...

Juliet, Naked

We loved this film at Sundance and we still love it now! A young woman living in a coastal English town is sick and tired of her boyfriend obsessing over a 1980s musician. When she comments on his fan blog expressing this, an unexpected reply follows from the musician himself. As the two enter into a pen-pal relationship, wonderful things take everyone by surprise.
