Seriously Red Movie Review

When a story is built around a person finding their way in life, it’s always more engaging if you feel empathetic towards that person and it is here that Seriously Red presents several challenges. Had the character of Red been a man their behaviour would be easy to dismiss as boorish and guilty of moments of toxic masculinity.   //   Flipping the script around to the female gender diffuses some of this but it’s still problematic. Within the context of those limitat...

Bros Movie Review

So many topics get skewered in the cause of making the audience laugh. Gender politics are used as fodder for humour as well as the difficulty in connecting in a world where everyone is linked by an electronic device. And through it all, one thing remains clear, gay dating can be every bit as messy as the heterosexual version. //   Most of the elements that make up successful rom-coms get played out here. Bobby (Billy Eichner) meets boy Aaron (Luke Macfarlane), falls for boy, ...

Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris Movie Review

Underlining the frivolities is some consistent commentary on the class system and the vanity and entitlement that the upper classes feel they are entitled to. Through it all, the down-to-earth nature and honesty of Mrs Harris (Lesley Manville) shines through. Set in post-World War II England. Mrs Harris ekes out a living cleaning the houses of the well-to-do.   //   Her husband has been missing since the war and she works hard to make a living but she still has dreams. ...

British Film Festival Fisherman’s Friends: One and All Movie Review

The album went gold selling over 150,000 copies and in these days of streaming that is an impressive number. With that surprise success, media attention and a film based on their story was inevitable. The first film did well and now part two gets a release. The first version was a feel-good story and the second continues with that momentum.   //   The story that has been built around the facts feels very contrived but that does little to dull the joy. Who doesn’t love ...
