New September Drama Comes With A Hit
You go to a strange city, walk the strange streets surrounded by thousands of strangers, you feel lonely but you feel good. Nobody tells you what to do or where to go - you are the master of your wishes and your plans. But there's one thing you change your mind about. Seeing a movie on September night on your own seems too much of a sentimental weight to bear, and you turn around on your heel without dramatizing the situation.
But drama continues to invade cinema theatres. This September ten new drama releases await their audience with all their splendor and complexity. Perhaps there's the one or a couple for you, no matter where and how you are:
