Movie Review: How to Build a Girl

Arts criticism? As a proper career? No chance. What a shoddy idea that I’ve been pursuing for years without so much as a care in the world for my future wellbeing. How to Build a Girl is a rather inspiring semi-autobiographical story adapted from the Caitlin Moran novel of the same name. The latest film from director Coky Giedroyc […]

Review: Saving Mr. Banks – Sweet, Even Without A Spoonful Of Sugar

Review: Saving Mr. Banks – Sweet, Even Without A Spoonful Of Sugar

Tom Hanks and Emma Thompson charm and delight in equal measure in a story behind a classic story

Saving Mr. Banks is an incredibly uplifting yet deeply emotional film for all to engage with, as it gives a deeper understanding of the process of Walt Disney attempting to acquire the rights of Mary Poppins. The Blind Side director John Lee Hancock constructs a powerful story by allowing the characters to have room to […]
