    That’s mummy, she sang it herself. 

    Do you like it too?

    I guess so, because your ear is right up against the speaker ...

    It’s about the stars and moon and stuff like that ...

    I play it every night before I go to sleep. 

    The first act completely touched my heart. The opening scene of JoJo beating his father to the bridge, running with his pink rubber gloves whilst a bird flew around the sky. I loved the meaning…

    Oh wow. Now this was a treat, such a scrummy, scrummy, scrumptious treat!

    The storyline, the animation, the stop motion, MARY & MAX, their friendship, the hilarious & genuine banter they had throughout the whole film.... the portrayal of depression, anxiety and mental health as a whole was so raw and wonderful, so honest & untouched, the way that life just takes you away from things & makes you wonder 'what if' scenarios.

    McKenna Grace has such a gorgeous, effortless presence on screen. I love her. 

    I AM HERE 
    THIS IS ME

    "My life is full, because I know that I am loved"

    What a powerful quote from an extra powerful piece of film making. 

    I'm blown away by this. The feelings it envoked within me alone deserve 5 stars, respectively.

    Hopkins was absolutely impeccable. His eyes ...... oh my HIS EYES, his eyes on their own just portrayed such intensity & emotion. I felt glued to them & couldn't look away. I wanted to wrap my arms around him & hug him tight. 

    John Merrick was…

    Something just lit up inside me.

    The realisation that we are all human. We all have similar wants and needs. We all feel.

    Whenever I feel down or I'm having one of those days where I am constantly searching for something unknown, I'm going to watch this.
