Disobedience Movie Review

Ronit Krushka (Rachel Weisz) is a New York based photographer whose father’s untimely death draws her back home to England and the Hasidic community that she grew up in. She had become an outcast from behaviour that was unacceptable in the tightly controlled world of the faith and her homecoming is not a welcome one.   //   Upon arriving home, she stays with childhood friends Dovid Kuperman (Alessandro Nivola) and his wife Esti (Rachel McAdams). Her return is an ...

The Leisure Seeker Movie Review

Her strength of character and love of John is palpable but she also has medical issues.   //   The film uses humour to help viewers from being overwhelmed with the sadness of it’s inevitable conclusion.

The Boy Downstairs Movie Review

The story is told in a non-linear way as we follow the rocky relationship of Diana (Zosia Mamet of Girls fame) and Ben (Matthew Shear). Their on and off and on again approach to dating is almost as frustrating as an almost complete void of being able to communicate with either themselves and each other. It leads to some deliciously misdirected dialogue. The reality of the actual exorbitant cost of living in New York City is never addressed. It’s left to the imagination how these ...

Phantom Thread Movie Review

Daniel Day-Lewis in his reportedly last ever role, goes out in fine style with an incredibly nuanced performance that also floods you with different emotions. One minute you see this dressmaker’s genius, then the next all his flaws come flooding out. Those that live in this rarified world of money and fashion (even in the fifties) have a aura of unreality that suits this story well. Daniel Day-Lewis’ character Reynolds Woodcock is so far removed from the lives of the average man that ...
