Here are films where setting is key, and the action takes place primarily against one backdrop. A home can be a palace or a prison, a castle or a cage; and someone can find themselves lost in the big city, or smothered in a small town. Showcasing the architectural design in an urban sprawl, or the rustic charm of nature, we’re in the neighbourhood of some great films. Featuring a wealth of award-winning performances, several auteurs, and some artist-muse
partnerships.
