Drama

Experience the spectrum of human emotion and dramatic themes with these brilliant films that aren’t afraid to explore life’s biggest questions.

There’s nothing quite like a good drama movie – that feeling of being swept away to another world, of walking a mile in another’s footsteps, of being immersed in the best and worst of what humans have to offer and experience.

It’s no secret dramatic roles tend to take the top gongs at the Academy Awards either, and with actors including Cate Blanchett, Naomi Watts, George Clooney, Jodie Foster, Matt Damon and Leonardo DiCaprio thriving in this genre, then it’s not hard to see why. For directors, it’s no different, with Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorsese and Joel Cohen all earning serious movie cred for dramatic movies.

This year we’re strapping ourselves in for a few dramatic, emotional and eye-opening roller-coasters.
