WHERE’S OLIVIA COLMAN?
In his debut as a major director and screenwriter Paddy Considine brings us a film about two seriously troubled individuals who just so happen to find and, in a sense, save each other. If you’re a big fan of deep, realistic dramas, and simply don’t mind, gritty violence and hardcore swearing then please do read on.
Studio Ghibli has done it again. Arrietty, inspired by the Borrowers novels of Mary Norton, is an incomparably beautiful story which effortlessly draws the viewer into a rarified world where a bay leaf makes a decent raincoat and cockroaches are the size of (shiny, aggressive and antennaed) Shetland ponies. Delicate, thoughtful and visually unmatched by almost anything we can think of, this is a very special film indeed.
