Fun Fridays – Director’s Favourite Films – Joel Hopkins

Hello Film Doctor friends

So here lands another Fun Friday and, this week, we enjoy the favourite films of Joel Hopkins – the director of “The Love Punch” (starring Pierce Brosnan and Emma Thompson).


Film Doctor - Joel Hopkins

Here are Joel’s thoughts:


“I’m very attracted to films that have exactly what we’re talking about, this balance between whimsy and pathos. They ride that line where you are laughing and then you are being moved the next scene. I love it when you can pull that off, I guess they’re called “dramedies.””

“One of the most influential films for me was Star Wars – it had such a big impact on me.”

“I loved Where the Wild Things Are – I thought it was fantastic.”


Film Doctor - The Love Punch

The Love Punch is released in cinemas nationwide across the UK today.
