It’s August! Another month, another Movie of the Month poll to determine our chosen film of focus for the next four-and-a-bit weeks. This year we’ve introduced a new special category for August, films predominantly not in the English language. A wide variety of nine films were submitted, votes were cast, and now it’s time to announce the winner. The Movie of the Month for August 2021 is… The Orphanage (El Orfanato)!
Congratulations go to Lisa Leaheey from The Critical Movie Critics and her new podcast The SibList for successfully championing The Orphanage to victory. As such she gets to host the upcoming Lambcast episode devoted to it!
If you would like to submit a film for a future MOTM poll, get in touch! Winners are excluded for a calendar year, so Meg Hyland, Richard Kirkham, James Wilson, Howard Casner, Nick Rehak, Emily Slade, Vern and Lisa Leaheey are now ineligible until 2022.
