Marriage Story Movie Review

Opening with the high of a verbal reading of lists of each other's best attributes, the film then rips that bandaid of contentment off with the very next scene. Set in a marriage consoler’s office, Nicole (Scarlett Johansson) can barely hide her contempt for husband Charlie (Adam Driver). Theirs is a love that has become venomous. Not taking editorial sides until film’s end, both parts of this union have validity in their opinions. What was once a unified direction has been whittled ...

The three start as somewhat strangers and time is taken to build their friendship through a plethora of unbelievable scenarios. They get beat up, shot at, blow up, drugged and still have perfect hair.   //   Recreating predictable harm in various exotic locations from around the globe helps to keep the ...

Under My Eye, the new circus work from Bianca Mackail is coming to the Brisbane Powerhouse

Always searching for story, dissecting, criticising, categorising, judging and boxing them all up into distorted ideas and ...

The event to those that have no knowledge is a little difficult to explain. It involves athletes on mountain bikes basically throwing themselves off cliffs.
