5 Venice Film Festival highlights we can't wait for!

The 74th Venice Film Festival ended last weekend, where some of the film highlights of this year were shown. The best films then go to world cinemas in the following months, and this year will be no different. That's why it's worth taking a look at which movies were the best received, and that's why we're looking forward to them all the more.

5 Venice Film Festival highlights we can't wait for:

The Shape of Water (2017)

The winning film of the renowned Mexican director Guillermo Del Toro, who has so far served with the films The Labyrinth of the Faun (El laberinto del fauno, 2006) and The Ring of Fire (Pacific Rim, 2013), follows the lonely Elisa, who works in a secret laboratory, where she discovers a mysterious creature.

Downsizing (2017)

Starring Matt Damon, the satire tells the story of an average American couple who decide to use miniaturization, the latest technology that shrinks people in order to solve the problem of Earth's overpopulation.

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, 2017)

A black comedy by Irish director Martin McDonagh, who has previously produced excellent films such as In Bruges (2008) and Seven Psychopaths. This time, he told the story of a mother who, with the help of billboards, challenges the local authorities who failed to murder her daughter.

Mother! (Mother!, 2017)

One of the most controversial films of this year follows a married couple (Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem) who live an idyllic life until complete strangers start appearing in their home.
