That's it, it's the end of the week. You will be able to take advantage of the weekend to rest, go out with friends or family and, why not, go to the movies. While the cold and bad weather are well established in France, the dark rooms are reaching out to you.

Even better? There are several feature films released this week that are worth checking out. In this article, we offer you films that should appeal to as many people as possible. On the program? The brand new Disney film to watch with the family, a sweet arthouse film, your last chance to see the new work of Martin Scorsese as well as a film that should interest biopic fans. Come on, let's go!

As usual, Disney spoils us as Christmas approaches. A decade after Frozen, which punctuated the 2013 end-of-year celebrations, Wish – Asha and the Lucky Staris an opportunity for the big-eared firm to celebrate its centenary.

Rosas is a fantasy kingdom where all wishes can be granted. Literally. When Asha interviews to become King Magnifico's assistant to help him grant the people's wishes, she discovers a much less enchanted reality. Desperate, she makes a sincere and powerful wish to the stars. A ball of infinite energy named Star responds to his call. Together, they will have to face King Magnifico and prove to him that the wish of a determined person, combined with the magic of the stars, can really work miracles.

With Wish – Asha and the Lucky Star, Disney is trying something new visually while keeping themes that are important to it. Enough to have a good time with the family!

In the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, the GameStop affair shook Wall Street. The impact is so strong that Dumb Moneyis a feature film that tells us about it. Already ! Let's summarize this remarkably complex story very simply: while financial experts bet on the fall of GameStop, a chain of video game stores, Keith Gill was convinced of the brand's potential. Far from being a connoisseur, Keith Gill managed to convince other Internet users, novice investors, to bet on GameStop. The key? A colossal amount of money. But the billionaire “wolves of Wall Street” who are waiting for GameStop to fall don’t see it that way.

It’s a true story that shook the financial markets and had serious consequences. A true story reminiscent of that of David against Goliath, Dumb Money should interest fans of stories inspired by real events. Especially when they are this extraordinary. Especially since Dumb Money brings together an avalanche of prestigious actors. Paul Dano, America Ferrera, Sebastian Stan, Nick Offerman and Shaileen Woodley are there.

A little melancholy and sweetness, what do you think? This is what Perfect Days by Wim Wenders (Paris, Texas) offers. Japanese film directed by a German filmmaker, this feature film made a small impact at Cannes. Indeed, actor Koji Yakusho won the Best Actor Award for his performance.

Perfect Daystakes us to meet Hirayama, who works maintaining public toilets in Tokyo. In his very structured daily life, Hirayama manages to find fulfillment in his simple life, made up of small pleasures. He loves music, books, the trees he photographs… Through unexpected encounters, his past will resurface. The film promises a moving and poetic reflection on the search for beauty in everyday life. Perfect for spending a pleasant weekend. If you like contemplative films, you should love Perfect Days. On AlloCiné, spectators give it a rating of 4.1 out of 5 while the press is more moderate with a rating of 3.6.

This is your last opportunity to see the new film directed by Martin Scorsese. Released on October 18, 2023, Killers of the Flower Moon is still showing in several cinemas. So you don't have a minute to lose: take advantage of this weekend to discover this unanimously acclaimed feature film.

With Killers of the Flower Moon, Martin Scorsese takes us to the beginning of the 20th century, when the Osage people became one of the richest Native American tribes in the world thanks to oil. But ill-intentioned white Americans intend to have a piece of the pie, even if it means going as far as murder to achieve their ends. Poignant, Killers of the Flower Moon is inspired by a true story.

With rave ratings and reviews everywhere, we highly recommend checking out Killers of the Flower Moon in theaters before it is no longer broadcast.
