11 October, 2015 by Press Release

Maya Forbes, the US writer and director of Infinitely Polar Bear starring Mark Ruffalo and Zoe Saldana, is this month’s guest curator for Dendy Direct.

Forbes has selected 15 films that have a distinct style while still packing an emotional punch. Her uniqueness, appreciation and passion for films are  reflected in her selections.


Her selection for October is:

• My Brilliant Career
• Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
• Fantastic Mr. Fox
• We Are The Best
• A Separation
• 24 Hour Party People
• The Incredibles
• Philomena
• The Chant of Jimmie Blacksmith
• Secret & Lies
• Raising Arizona
• Bend it like Beckham
• 2 Days in Paris
• Brokeback Mountain
• I’m Not There

“These are films that stayed with me long after I watched them, because they either delighted or devastated me — sometimes both," she said. "My taste runs the gamut, but I find a distinct voice exhilarating. A movie comes alive for me when I can tell it was shepherded by an individual with a beating heart, making unexpected choices.”
