WILD: London FF Review

Wild, dir. Jean-Marc Vallée, 2014, US      It is rather a common thing to push ourselves beyond the borderline in an attempt to see what it takes to confront our fears. This challenge now has potentially evolved into the journey of encountering our dreams and testing our capability to either pursue or quit them; but is it easy to define a dream as a ‘to quit’ or ‘to live’, before knowing the cost?    Wild is about dreams. Or, to be m...

London Screenwriters Festival

user
London Screenwriters Festival is a festival that runs from the 29th - 31st October it is only about screen writing and its for screen writes. I'm not really a screen writer but the line up of events looked kinder cool.

An interview with the director of Hannah Takes the Stairs, Joe Swanberg

user
At a time when vast sums of cash are being hurled at production companies, all too often for the production of rather dull films, the low-budget Hannah Takes the Stairs is a shining gem of a film by Joe Swanberg. Lauded as an example of the new wave of American indie film-making it is refreshing for its raw visual quality and honestly portrayed subject matter. Greta Gerwig plays Hannah, an attractive post-graduate who is starting out in the big world. As the heat of summer intensifies, Hannah fa...
