Review: James White – “An affecting emotional journey”

Review: James White – “An affecting emotional journey”

When he left HBO’s dramedy Girls in 2013, allegedly because of creative differences with the hit show’s wunderkind creator (and star) Lena Dunham, 30-year-old actor Christopher Abbott might’ve had a point, despite many considered it a risky move for someone who was practically unknown. Quitting a high profile gig in such a difficult and uncertain industry...

February at the Movies

Editors’s Note – This article was written before the 2016 Oscars took place. Spotlight kicked the month off in… Sombre style. It’s a strange one as when it initially screened at Festivals it was getting Oscar buzz, and you can see from the cast its ‘worthy’. But it all fizzled out and I’m hoping that’s because...
