We’ve decided to start a new series of posts called “The Best Films Set In…”. The setting can be a place (like Tokyo), a location (like the beach), or a time (like Winter). In these posts we’re going to pick our 5 favourite films that are set in that particular place/location/time and explain why we like them. We’ll aim to post a new one every week. If there is a time or place you would like to see featured then tweet or email us! Alternatively, if you’re interested in writing one yourself, please let us know!
