But when Laura falls in love, her new romance highlights flaws in their friendship that force them to re-consider their shared and separate futures. Consistently unconventional, unruly and rich, Animals capably conjures up an entire world. It boasts excellent performances by and chemistry between Grainger and Shawkat, a sharp, insightful and witty script, and Hyde’s distinctive direction.

Following their dream the bar maid, ex-miners and pensioners mix with Countesses and Sheikhs in the owners enclosure at Aintree. They’re a hugely likeable crew who tell their story with broad smiles on their faces, still barely able to believe how a horse gave hope to their whole village. "Funny, inspiring - with a round of applause at the end." Flicks Promoter

Little Women (2019) (U)

Writer-director Greta Gerwig has crafted a LITTLE WOMEN that draws on both the classic novel and the writings of Louisa May Alcott, and unfolds as the author’s alter ego, Jo March, reflects back and forth on her fictional life.
