Best of 2017… Film – Movies still to look forward to

Nick Lay casts an eye forward to the films we still have to get excited about in 2017...

Brigsby Bear

If you are after something a little different during Oscar season, look no further than Dave McCary’s directorial debut. Brigsby Bear is the adventure of James Pope, a man forced by his parents to remain inside their home at all times. His only connection to the outside world? A children’s television show starring… you guessed it. Like last year’s perfectly strange Swiss Army Man, it appears as though Brigsby Bear will fall into the new age realm of low budget, abstract comedy-drama satire with a legitimate emotional core.

Eyes will be on seasoned SNL segment director McCary, while co-writer Kyle Mooney also stars alongside Jane Adams, Greg Kinnear, Claire Danes and, best of all, Mark Hamill, whose return to live action roles outside Star Wars is all too welcome.

UK release date: December 8
