  • Drinking Buddies 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 09 Dec, 2014

    A solid alternative to the predictable, carefully plotted rom coms produced by Hollywood. Olivia Wilde's character is a real woman too, messy, edgy, and both needy and strong.

  • The Duchess 2008

    ★★★½ Watched 08 Dec, 2014

    Sumptuous and romantic - considering it's a movie about one terrible marriage, set in a time period where women's only duty was to look good and bear sons. My only beef with this film is that they glossed over the fact that the Duchess of Devonshire was also a writer and that she had ambitions beyond the nursery and bedroom.

    This film might be under investigation for war crimes.

  • W.E. 2011

    ★★★ Watched 05 Sep, 2014

    A beautiful little bauble of a period piece about patience, sacrifice and finding love. This film was a bit over the top at times (ease up on that slo-mo, Madonna) but always sensitive in its portrayal of these two heroines try to reconcile their romantic expectations with harsh realities.

    A must-see for fashion junkies - lots of beautiful clothing abounds.
