    How to Build a Girl


    How to Build a Girl (2019) d. Coky Giedroyc sp. Caitlin Morgan/John Niven based on CM's experiences as a teen music journalist. Beanie Feldstein a delight navigating the journey from swotty teen to naive (then evil*) music critic before realising where her talents truly lie., *spends a tad too long in this section. Loved her bedroom wall! 🎩❤️

  • Moana



    Moana (2016) d. Ron Clements/John Musker. Catchy songs, likeable characters & in Moana (Auliʻi Cravalho) a role model for our time, one that respects tradition but seeks adventure, challenge, is determined & can save the save the day. + The Rock rocks 💪 +Jermaine Clements 💙. 🌊

  • Contagion



    Contagion (2011) d. Steven Soderbergh. Finally caught up with this! Very educational.... And prescient. Would I have watched it if there hadn't been a global pandemic? Probably not.

    Little Joe


    Little Joe (2019) w/d. Jessica Hausner. Alice (#EmilyBeecham), Chris (#BenWhishaw) & Bella (#KerryFox) work for an experimental plant breeders. But is their new plant changing people's moods? Beautifully shot: striking framing/use of colour. But was not taken with plot/dialogue.
