Day 05: Your Favorite Drama Movie

Well, most of noir fits this category, I suppose. If “Drama Movie” means serious presentation of realistic characters and situations that shows human beings at their best or worst, then the best noir drama is going to be one that is more about story than style. Given that context…

TURN THE KEY SOFTLY (1953)

Yet another film I’ve already written about (here and here), Turn the Key Softly is a British noir about three women released from prison, whom we follow on their first day out. Will they go straight or fall into old patterns? There’s great tension and touching drama. I just love it.
