Pamela Powell reviews “Deepwater Horizon” and “The Dressmaker” for Reel Honest Reviews and The Daily Journal

“DEEP WATER HORIZON”

“Deepwater Horizon” recreates the devastating environmental oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico so expertly that you can almost feel the heat from the flames burning on the water.  This intense action film based on true events, starring Mark Wahlberg, Kate Hudson, Kurt Russell, and Dylan O’Brian brings you behind the scenes leading up to this monumental disaster.  Written by Matthew Michael Carnahan and Matthew Sand, and directed by Peter Berg, you will not only learn the inside story of what happened that day, but perhaps you’ll take a closer look at our environmental policies and fuel consumption.  But if that’s not your thing, you’ll love the high action and suspense this film brings.

“THE DRESSMAKER”

Have you ever left a theater thinking, “I am so glad I spent my time and money to go see that film?”  If you haven’t, then this is the one that will make you utter those glorious words.  Kate Winslet, Judy Davis, and Liam Hemsworth star in this Australian tragedy/comedy stylized revenge film written and directed by Jocelyn Moorhouse and based on the novel by Rosalie Ham.  It’s an over-the-top humorous look at Tilly (Winslet), her quest for knowledge and revenge while she attempts to reconnect with her reclusive and very feisty mother, “Mad Molly” (Davis).
