The Jungle Book Movie Review
The film also includes some great laughs along with the heavy hits of pathos as you the audience discover the identity of the voice actors. Of particular note are the very funny antics of Bill Murray as Baloo and the Guido humour of Christopher Walken as King Louie. Idris Elba is also especially majestic as the king of the jungle, Shere Khan
The film travels down the well know path of the animated original but adds enough new depth to give it a relevance of its own. It does however ...

Inspired by the life of Florence Foster Jenkins. 1921, the beginning of the Golden Twenties. Not far from Paris it is party day at Marguerite Dumont’s castle.

Ethan Langridge was diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome at four years of age. Because of this syndrome Ethan perceives the world differently.

Johanna Wharton, Ethan’s mother, described stepping into Ethan’s world as ‘the joy of walking through shafts of colour and light; a dazzling kaleidoscope’. She ...
When One Fore Closes at La Boite
What if they all landed up in the same room?
What if they couldn’t speak?
What if the room was full of scratched recordings of A Dolls House, Hedda Gabbler and Miss Julie, plus a dash of Freud?
How would they navigate each other, their own pasts and the future?
La Boite and Circa join forces on this new creation. Three masterpieces of turn-of-the-century drama meet the visceral force of extreme acrobatic theatre.
