film review: the pretty one

Karla Gamero Gomez
No comments

It is true that most of us tend to define who we are by comparing ourselves to people around us; friends, sisters, mothers, daughters. This is done much more if you are a twin; more commonly, the younger twin. In her latest film, The Pretty One, Zoe Kazan (Ruby Sparks) portrays Laurel and Audrey, identical…

film review: frank

Giuliana Cincotta

Jon Burroughs is an insipid, wannabe musician craving excitement. Searching passers-by on the street, desperately attempting to grasp inspiration, his pain — the pain of an unknown musician — is familiar to anyone whose ever suffered through a  severe case of writer’s block. It seems the red-headed hopeful, played by Domhnall Gleeson (About Time), would…

film review: maleficent

Caitlin Gordon-King
No comments

Trigger warning for discussions of sexual violence When I was a kid, I was given a Sleeping Beauty doll. She came with pink pouty lips, long lashes, and a switch at the back that made her eyes flutter open and closed – but for all the deluxe features, Disney forgot that women have bendable knee…

Though it sometimes labours to fulfil the task, this film echoes Dickens’ sentiment: the story of the author’s hidden mistress has got something. It speaks on Dickens, love,…
