"There is a constant sense of motion in this grand scale sci-fi adventure, and while special effects overtake character and plot, we are grounded by the welcome familiarity of the characters we have long known and loved," says Louise.

Movie review: LOVE & FRIENDSHIP
Movie review:
LOVE & FRIENDSHIP

(US, 2006) Dir: Whit Stillman. Stars Kate Beckinsale, Xavier Samuel, Chloe Sevigny, Stephen Fry. "Love, money and convenience engage in a merry dance, in this engaging comedy of manners adapted from Jane Austen's novella Lady Susan, in which its drawing room of characters feel as though they have descended from their gilt-framed portraits hanging on the wall of their stately manors," says Louise. "Whit Stillman doesn't go far enough, not for me anyway, with his stylised satire based on Jane Austen’s satirical and episodic novella about a right bitch of a scheming, lying, selfish woman, Lady Susan Vernon - played to the death by a sparkling Kate Beckinsale," says Andrew.

Movie reviews:  HITCHCOCK/TRUFFAUT
Movie reviews:
HITCHCOCK/TRUFFAUT

(France, US, 2015) Dir: Kent Jones. Documentary featuring Alfred Hitchcock, Francois Truffaut, Martin Scorsese, David Fincher, Wes Anderson, Richard Linklater. "A surprisingly intimate, revealing and engaging documentary, this is not just for the cinema buffs and film tragics who deconstruct films like clever kids take apart lego worlds," says Andrew. "If you love Hitchcock's films or are interested in cinema, you will be fascinated by this documentary that not only shows the genius of 'the man who wrote with a camera', but offers greater appreciation for such films as Vertigo, Notorious, Psycho and The Birds," says Louise. REVIEWS
