“One day you’ll be free”- Breathe In

Breathe In captures what it means to be trapped in a suburban lifestyle. In Drake Doremus’ latest film he tells the traditional story of those who live in what may seem, a perfect lifestyle and how they want a life that does not revolve around the school run and sending out family Christmas cards. In this […]

The Eden Sessions: An evening of celebration and intensity

On the 2nd July in Cornwall at the Eden Project, the outdoor biome was transformed in to a concert area where many gathered for an intimate set headlined by the xx and accompanied by supporting artists CHIC featuring Nile Rogers. The event can only be described a snug, it was almost as though each member […]

Husbands and Wives

Witty, emotional and a classic that still can be appreciated now. So as a gift I was given a Woody Allen Boxset. Now the characteristic of one who likes a Woody Allen film is typically idealistic, hopelessly romantic and self-destructive.

Is it worth it to be with the one you love?

A review of Bonjour Tristesse (‘Hello Sadness’) In this short romance story set in France Sagan has depicted a world of jealously, greed and passion through a child’s eyes.  Cecile is not a child through age but rather through her acts of selfishness and deceitfulness.

‘There was a barber and his wife…’

Most of us know the story of Sweeney Todd, but for those of you who do not; Sweeney Todd is a fictional character (although there are many debates) who would murder people in his barber shop on Fleet Street, London. Sweeney Todd was a crazed barber who would seat his victims in a chair, lure […]
