With C’mon, C’mon releasing in theaters Nov.12 starring Joaquin Phoenix, it’s hard to not get excited for yet another masterful film to add to this company’s wonderful filmography. The A24 film company has brought so many wonderful movies to a large audience of film lovers.
With the wide array of films that the company has produced throughout the years, it’s hard to not have a favorite. Whether you're new to A24 or you’ve seen every movie, there’s sure to be something for everyone. So, which is your favorite? Here’s what your favorite says about you:
This is without a doubt one of Adam Sandler's best performances. He puts his heart and soul into making sure his character, Howard, is brought to life, which ultimately makes the story that much more heartbreaking. If this is your favorite, you enjoy a good storyline but one that you don’t have to focus too much on. You probably watched this one thinking it was going to be another zany Adam Sandler comedy, but you were uniquely surprised by the film’s storyline, as it is a rollercoaster of emotions. Not to mention, you love an ending that leaves your jaw dropped for hours.
This one is very dark, both in the way it’s shot and the storyline. If you enjoy this one, you’re a very patient person. The story drags at some moments but is ultimately very worth watching in its ending. You also are probably a Robert Pattinson stan, or you just really find black and white films aesthetically pleasing.
Simply put, you love a Florence Pugh moment. You love this film primarily because she’s in it, but you also really like the plot of the whole movie. You watch this movie more so for the aesthetic and acting that is presented, rather than being fixed on the overall storyline or characters. This film is dark, but the way it’s presented isn’t, as the settings are very floral and colorful.
You probably find one of the characters attractive, or you’re into all things Jonah Hill, as the film is written and directed by him. Or, you’re an actual skater, and you walked into this film because you heard it was a good depiction of skateboarding in L.A. For any of these reasons, you love this film, and it’s commendable. This film is insightful and enriching, as it provides a look into growing up that isn’t cheesy or played out.
You’re a very cool person that is most likely very rebellious in nature. You probably also ship Saoirse Ronan and Timothée Chalamet, even though Chalamet plays a pretty toxic character in this film. For any reason, this is a solid choice. It is an identifiable trademark coming-of-age story that encapsulates teenage angst unlike any other film in that category. You root for Ladybird, but her mom also has a very special place in your heart.
The Florida Project
You might be a little sad or just nostalgic about your childhood. It’s not a bad thing, just something that may affect you a little deeper than others. Whether you had a good childhood or a rough one, if you like this movie, you reminisce a lot about when you were a kid. You also may have a childlike wonder for the world around you, and it makes you such a bright personality.
You deserve major respect. This is a heartbreaking story, and you were able to find happiness throughout it. You may also struggle with your own personal identity and have had to find yourself throughout your life. That’s something that’s very respectable, and it’s also something that makes you a stronger person. This movie speaks volumes to knowing who you are and accepting yourself.
You’re probably a hopeless romantic, and this movie spoke volumes to you when you first watched it. You’ve felt the pain of heartbreak and the ending of relationships. This is most definitely not a breakup movie; instead, it pinpoints the problem with feeling like you need to be in a relationship all the time. For this reason, you resonate because the heartache you may have felt has made you appreciate being by yourself even more.
The Spectacular Now
You are also a hopeless romantic, though not for the same reasons. You can relate to this movie because you are so emphatically in love with someone. You don’t necessarily find relief in being alone and wish that it was that you could find true love. This movie takes a deep dive into the romantic comedy genre, but it does a good job of not being cheesy or distasteful. You have great taste in rom-coms if this is one of your favorites.
