Today I’m sharing the 6 cinema movies who can’t be missed in February. Think of movies where you’re probably going to cry and hilarious movies to watch with your friends. Have fun!

1. Personal Shopper 

Kristen Stewart is back and back in the role of Maureen in Personal Shopper. During the day she’s a personal shopper in Paris, at night she’s trying to get in touch with her dead twin brother Lewis. Before his death they made a pact that the one who died first should let the other now he/she is still here. When Maureen suddenly gets mysterious messages its becomes really exciting.

2. Fifty Shades Darker (from February 8)

We don’t really have to explain what this movie is about and we think the trailer says enough too. In Fifty Shades Darker Christian wrestles with his inner denoms, while Anastasia has to real with the anger and jealousy of the woman who were with Christian before.

3. Moonlight (jonge jongen, tiener en volwassen man)

Moonlight is already called the best movie of 2017 and after seeing the trailer we’re not proving them wrong. Moonlight follows three periods (young boy, teenager and an adult male) of the life of a young African American man who struggles with his identity, masculinity, sexuality and place in the world. The film got already 8 Oscar nominations, that’s promising!

4. Ron Goossens, Low Budget Stuntman 

A hilarious Dutch movie to watch with your friends is Ron Goosens, Low Budget Stuntman, made by the creators of New Kids. Ron survives on a spectaculair way an action that could mean his death after he drunk a little bit too much beer. The whole action was filmed, shared and went viral. An impresario hires Ron as a low budget stuntman. You can take a guess on how this movie wil continue.

5. Jackie (from February 16)

Jackie is the movie where I have been waiting for for months. Natalie Portman takes on the role of Jackie Kennedy. We’re going to see the murder of John F. Kennedy and the four days of national mouring through the eyes of the First Lady. A moving portrait of a woman, a widow and mother in mouring that needs to keep calm for her country and the rest of the world.
