An Actress's Take on All-Things-Screen

At The Cinema


Some journalists have laughed at this film, but they just need to lighten up. I'm going to watch this with my sister (who loves films about middle-aged women) and it means we get to have a bonding sesh on a Friday night with some wine, popcorn and laughs. And it stars Diane Keaton. Need I defend it any more?

Jurassic World

I really like this rebooted franchise -  Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are brilliantly cast. It comes out on June 6th and I'm counting down the days. I just wish Jurassic World was actually a place you could visit. 'Cept in this case, I would know better than to go in one of those hamster ball things. Stay. Away.

The tale

Laura Dern is my favourite. I was meant to watch this film at Sundance this week but I couldn't because I committed to Book Club (not the film - I'm in an actual book club - now THAT'S dedication). Looking forward to seeing all the other offerings by some fantastic filmmakers. This film also stars the incredible Elizabeth Debicki.

 Deadpool 2

This is no ordinary superhero film. If it was, I wouldn't be watching. Those 'flicks really aren't my bag. But Deadpool? I love him. And he's played by the wonderful Ryan Reynolds so of course he's a crowd pleaser. This is your sassiest superhero yet. Witty one-liners, a quirky cast and unexpected twists. It's really really self-deprecatingly funny.

Ocean's 8

I'm looking forward to seeing this all-female revamp of the Oceans films we once knew and loved. Except it's not as much a revamp as it is a restoration, complete with the likes of the wonderful Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett - Rhianna. The girls and I have a date in the diary booked for it. I'll let you know how I get on!

Nothing Like a Dame

I think of this film and I think of my sister (movies such as these are right up her street).  And this. THIS. With the likes of Maggie Smith starring. Well, it's especially up her street. You might struggle to find it in a mainstream London cinema. But if you see someone called Hannah in the front row, tell her I said hi.
