Must See Movies For June

Pulling together some of the hottest of Hollywood’s talent, Ocean’s 8 is one of the most hotly anticipated movies of 2018. Is it worth the hype? In a word: yes.  

Debbie Ocean (Sandra Bullock) spent five years in prison—time enough to plot one of the biggest heists in history. She plans to steal a stunning Cartier diamond necklace from (where else?) the neck of A-list actress Daphne Kluger (Anne Hathaway). She also wants to steal it at none other than the biggest annual party in America, the Met Gala. Worth a cool 150 million dollars, the necklace is well-guarded and, if she succeeds, will set her up for life.

Walking away from prison with just $45 in her pocket, Debbie Ocean knows how to make life work. From tricks to stealing makeup to landing a bed in a top hotel in the first few minutes of the movie, she has the brains and the sass to make shit happen.

Naturally—just like her brother in the previous films—she needs a badass team. Enter some of the biggest names in Hollywood including Cate Blanchett and Rihanna. From a jeweller to a pickpocket to a fashion designer, Debbie Ocean gathers the best of crews to pull off the impossible.  

The necklace itself, called the Toussaint, is six pounds of elegance that slips around Daphne’s neck in pure beauty and she wears it with pride at New York’s Met Gala. But can she keep it on? With tongue-in-cheek humour, the team of women have a damn good time while attempting to commit the crime.

We won’t spoil it by telling you if they succeeded…

While there’s nothing in the plot that will shock or shake you, Ocean’s 8 has a stellar cast and is a feel-good movie that’s absolutely worth seeing.
