To say that this is one of the best films from Clint Eastwood that’s enough for me to want to watch it. In Gran Torino, starring and directed by an actor, tells the story of a war veteran, Walt Kowalski, who spends his life in doing little repairs on the house, and drinking beer.
The story changes when their neighborhood will be the home of families of color, which he initially despises. It all changes when his neighbor, a young Laotian, is forced by a gang to steal his Gran Torino. Something is very much criticized at the time, was the fact that Gran Torino did not get any nomination for the academy awards.

7 – In-Pace-of-Flight (2017)
The film’s story is simple: the skilled Baby (Ansel Elgort) has been working for some criminals, such as the best driver of the escape, that they may have. What makes the film different, and better, is their connection with the music, constantly in the ears of the main character, as a way to silence the ringing in your ears that bothers you from an accident suffered in childhood.

The cast, with Angelina Jolie, and Robert Duvall.
