Tonight

If you are constantly on the internet, you lose the world.

I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to hear Werner Herzog speak this evening and he was enchanting. Inspired me to put away the screens more often and look around me instead.

Film: Lady Macbeth

I had such an interesting evening at the Dublin Film Festival tonight listening to William Oldroyd talk about the inspiration behind the wonderful direction and cinematography of his first feature film Lady Macbeth. The film itself is fantastic and the performances by Florence Pugh and Naomi Ackie are inspiring. On my list for this weekend? Devouring everything I can find written by Alice Birch and getting in some walks in nature…

Harper Lee. 

Remembering Harper Lee: Robert Duvall, who played Boo Radley in To Kill A Mockingbird says, ‘I remember when I started production Harper Lee sent me a telegraph that simply said ‘Hey Boo’.

I love this quote that The Hollywood Reporter posted on their Instagram today. And I loved Harper Lee. I still remember the first time I read To Kill A Mockingbird. When I finished the last word I went back to the start and began all over again.

Her words will live on forever.

Room. 

I was so nervous about seeing this because I loved the book so much but there was no need to worry. A fantastic adaptation so perfectly brought to screen by Lenny Abrahamson. Brie Larson breaks your heart, Jacob Tremblay puts it back together. None of it possible without the words from Emma Donoghue. This movie deserves all the attention it’s receiving, and more.
