The lawyer turned actor! Interesting films by Gerard Butler



The Scotsman Gerard Butler is well known to the Brazilian public, many of his productions have arrived here and have been shown not only in theaters but also on Open TV. He started very late in the profession. The actor studied law at the University of Glasgow and spent two years as an intern at a giant law firm. But he was not at all happy and when he was fired he decided to pursue his true dream: to be an actor! Before, however, he was even a singer in a rock band but that did not advance.

He started out on the British stage in landmark adaptations, being highly regarded in one of them, William Shakespeare’s Coriolanus (which later became a film with Gerard himself in one of the lead roles). In film, he made his first breakthrough in the 1997 feature film Her Majesty Mrs. Brown, directed by John Madden. From this film Gérard rose to fame and major productions, having marked appearances in several action films and romantic comedies.

To indicate a few interesting films from the actor’s career, we decided to make a short list:

Have fun watching:

After an unattractive start (which gradually improves), the work of director Marc Forster answers (or tries to answer) the following question: Can faith change a path? With the right upheavals, hurricanes and many sins, Redemption embraces the power of faith in building a better life for a people in need, through the hands of one man. How this “improvement” is achieved is the big point of analysis of the film starring Scottish actor Gerard Butler.

Beginning in feature films as a director, producer and screenwriter (creator of the Netflix hit Ozark), Mark Williams brings to the big screen the portrait of a family who has a father estranged from his life as a workaholic. By analyzing history through the limits of the human being, great debates can be built. Dean’s lack of work ethic, his failures as a father, the internal struggle between power and family.

Final Destruction: The Last Refuge

Human survival causes us to have and see attitudes that are not pleasant. Directed by filmmaker Ric Roman Waugh (of the knowledgeable Unforgiveness), with a screenplay by Chris Sparling, Final Destruction: The Last Refuge, or Greenland in the original, is a film that is somewhat surprising because it focuses on the drama. and the action is only a pretext for an analysis of human relations. Obviously, there are clichés (almost all blockbusters practically do this) but there is a force in the lines of the storyline that is reinforced in the choices of the characters. There is a very interesting principle of Darwinism that we need to think about.

A good catch

How to mature without ceasing to live? Italian filmmaker Gabriele Muccino (In Search of Happiness) looks back on his favorite genre, drama, to talk about the search for redemption of a father who had abandoned the family because of his immaturity. We are led to emotional conflicts and romantic adventures (a little forced, it’s true) which help to contextualize this good romantic comedy.

Can bravery and revenge go hand in hand? The debut of veteran actor Ralph Fiennes in the direction of a feature film, Coriolano, is a very interesting production which shows the innuendo of war with a lot of intensity and blood. Filmed largely in Belgrade (Serbia), this is a film that fans of war feature films will be eager to see.

Dear Frankie

The friendly film Dear Frankie, directed by British filmmaker Shona Auerbach is a film about a family where the mother makes up stories for herself about the child’s real father and ends up being invented by fate based on the inconsistencies of the children. lies. The film was screened at the Mostra de SP and was nominated for a BAFTA category. A little-known film by Butler but worth the detour.

Ps i love you

One of the most successful films here in Butler’s career, PS I Love You shows us the saga of a new widow who needs her life to spend when the great love of her life leaves a series of letters for her. help with this goal. difficult stage of life. Very moving film, nice to have a handkerchief around while watching.


Directed by Zack Snyder, based on the comic book by Frank Miller and Lynn Varley, 300 is visually fascinating. Showing a clip of the Battle of Thermopylae, the second medical war between an alliance of King of Sparta Leonidas and the Achaemenid Empire of Xerxes, the film is pure adrenaline. Butler plays Leonidas.
