  • Cheat Sheet: Ryan Gosling

    2011 is the year of Gosling – Ryan and his jaw are starring in Crazy, Stupid, Love (“charming” – Caroline), Drive (“pulsing” – Tash) and The Ides of March (‘probably going to be a bit dodge’ – just a guess). If we could have organised a celebratory screening of Fly Away Home we would have done, but until we perfect our microlight a Cheat Sheet will have to do…


  • Cheat Sheet: Rachel Weisz

    Hugely talented, enviably beautiful and married to Daniel Craig, Rachel Weisz is the thinking man’s crumpet and the thinking woman’s object of bitter, bitter envy. But what does she get up to when she’s not fighting mummies and winning Oscars? It’s a Tuesday; this must be the Cheat Sheet…

  • Why we heart Ben Affleck

    BFF: defenders of the weak, trumpeters of the down-trodden, makers of wild, unsubstantiated claims and lovers of Ben Affleck. That’s right. It’s a heady mix.




  • The Time Traveler’s Wife

    Based on the novel of the same name, The Time Traveler’s Wife explores a sometime traditional love story in a very untraditional way. It centes on the lives of two people ‘fated’ to be together, but one is plagued by a (very) rare disease; that he randomly jumps through time, so that their relationship is fundamentally fragmented, heartbreaking and frankly, very, very confusing.
