Films by Must See

Staff Picks: Kailey Carruthers

From Cannes to camp, SNL alumni to anticipated features and the beautifully titled WTF? genre in this year's programme, my 2017 Must See list is a mélange of subjects and styles.

With so many incredible and memorable cinematic options in the NZIFF programme, I hope my strange little list can help navigate you towards a new favourite, or at the very least, expose you to something completely different/exciting/scandalous.

Call Me by Your Name

Luca Guadagnino

This gorgeous and moving adaptation of André Aciman’s acclaimed novel, directed by Luca Guadagnino (I Am Love), stars Armie Hammer and Timothée Chalamet as lovers in sun-kissed northern Italy.
