    Victoria & Abdul

    ★★

    Basically a sequel to Mrs. Brown, but not up to the same standards of writing or performance.  Judi Dench is still outstanding as Queen Victoria, though.

    ★★★★

    Terrific acting from both Judi Dench and Billy Connely, and a fascinating story. The picture badly needs restoration.

    28 Up

    ★★★★

    The children of 7 Up are now fully fledged adults, and it's getting more interesting seeing how dramatically some have changed since 21, for better or worse. It seems clearer now that the series' premise - that our future personalities are determined from a young age - is not correct at all.

  • The Wind Rises

    The Wind Rises

    ★★★

    As an exercise in beautiful imagery, it's almost unparalleled. The storyline is touching and memorable, although the pacing is all over the place. Hope you like planes.
