Movie review: ‘Where to Invade Next’

GB7764I1K.4

IMG Films

Movie review: ‘The Lady in the Van’

G1072QHVK.4

BBC Films

In 1974, by reluctant invitation, a homeless but not vanless woman by the name of Mary Shepherd parked her banged-up vehicle in the driveway of the Camden Town home belonging to playwright, novelist and humorist Alan Bennett. Read more

Movie review: ‘Pride and Prejudice and Zombies’

GH574AM9A.5

Jay Maidment

Novelist Seth Grahame-Smith stumbled into a goldmine back in 2009 when he slammed together the polite world of Jane Austen’s manners and manors with the dystopian world of zombie destruction and decimation, with Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Not only was it ... Read more
