Little Women (2020)

It is so difficult to do justice to a classic and director Greta Gerwig has done just that.

Connecting your emotions to the story and the characters from the first frame, we see a pure and simple bond between the siblings and everything that affects them.

Many highs and lows later the performances remain consistently strong and deep, where we are seen rooting for all of them.

A heart-warming start to the year and a fitting choice for every accolade.

4/5

Big Little Lies – Season Two (2019)

The stellar team of Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Laura Dern, Shailene Woodley, Zoe Kravitz, is back with the addition of the enigmatic Meryl Streep, who plays a delicate character, who is annoying, intrusive yet caring and concerned. It’s a difficult part to play but who better than her to brave it.

The principal cast is persistent on hiding what really happened at the end of Season 1, which plays out as different stresses for their characters. New truths are revealed as they navigate through their complex lives in their sleepy small town.

Excellent performances which culminate in an intense final episode.
