Review: One Man, Two Guvnors

Last night, I had the pleasure of going to see One Man, Two Guvnors, an English adaptation of the Italian comedy The Servant of Two Masters, at the Theatre Royal Haymarket. I was somewhat drawn to the idea of a farce set in Brighton in 1963. After all, many of the movies and television programmes... Continue Reading →

Feminism Friday: The Help

Last week I found myself at a loose end one evening. It's been so long since I last had a few hours to myself where going home was not an option, that I really didn't know what to do with myself. I asked around and none of my friends were available, so I racked my... Continue Reading →

Billed as a 'celebration of creative British cool', Vintage at Goodwood aimed to inject a bit of glamour back into the UK festival calendar... Continue Reading →

Review: The School of Life

Director Sophie Howarth described the concept to The London Paper by saying, "the idea is to give people the knowledge they need... Continue Reading →

Iron Man 2

Yesterday I watched Iron Man 2. Nothing amazing about this fact, you might think, but it says a lot about this film because we are rarely so excited about a movie that we'll brave the opening weekend crowds and idiocy to see it. Having enjoyed the first one tremendously, and having seen exciting trailers for... Continue Reading →
