Official Secrets (2019)

Based on a true story and an event in history which was highly unnecessary, this film speaks about the courage and bravery of one woman who took it upon herself to leak classified information.

Keira Knightley is convincing in her role as whistle-blower Katharine Gun, supported by a host of talent we have seen and admired in shows and movies; Ralph Fiennes, Matt Smith, Matthew Goode and Rhys Ifans.

I like to walk into a movie without knowing anything about it, which helped greatly this time. To be told about this fact unfolding as film was not only a revelation but a relief that someone tried to do something about it.

A tense and well-paced film which needs worldwide press and release.



She’s funny that way (2015)

Director Peter Bogdanovich serves a screwball comedy with a good cast, and manages to get some laughs.

Jennifer Aniston was key in attracting audiences but had a special appearance of a role, where she played a quirky shrink (imagine Rachel giving therapy).

Owen Wilson and Rhys Ifans steal the show with their antics while Imogen Poots and Kathryn Hahn have their own shenanigans to keep us entertained.

A film that could have been much funnier but still manages to entertain. Perfect for the flight 🙂
