Last Night in Soho (2021)

I did not know what to expect when I walked into the cinema to see this film. I mean, I had only just watched the trailer earlier that day and my husband spontaneously booked us tickets to go and watch it. But I'm so thankful that we saw it.

Directed by the visionary Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, Baby Driver), this British Psychological thriller is full of exciting twists and turns. With beautiful cinematography, a captivating storyline, and fantastic acting, I'd recommend this to any thriller/horror fan. 

Featuring the uber-talented Anna Taylor-Joy, Matt Smith and Thomasin McKenzie, there are so many parts in this film I was not expecting – resulting in a film that was very unique compared to many other modern-day thrillers.

The story focuses on an aspiring fashion designer who is fascinated with all things 1960s. When she moves to London from a quiet village in Cornwall, she starts to experience visions of an ambitious singer. However, the visions start to take a dark turn and everything is not what it seems. A dark and mysterious tale ensues that kept me and the rest of the audience in the cinema on the edge of their seats. 

I thoroughly enjoyed this film from the very beginning. The characters were personable, the breathtaking camera work was fabulous and the costume design was enchanting. The moment that the film came to an end I knew that it was one that I would happily sit and watch again - something that I have not found recently when watching the latest released films, whether that be on Netflix or even in the cinema. 

So if you're looking for an extraordinary film that stands out at the cinema, then book your tickets and indulge in this retro masterpiece.
