  1. Arbitrage – film review and my own red carpet experience!

    4
    Article by Ceri Wheeldon When I received an invite to the film premiere of Arbitrage with Richard Gere, how could I possibly say no?!  I had in fact already seen the film (at a press review), but the opportunity to see it again , with Richard Gere himself in attendance and experience the red carpet treatment would be fun. The Arbitrage film: A grown up film with a strong storyline, covering grown up issues and a good twist at the end. Richard Gere, Susan Sarandon take the lead roles as a long term married couple , living  what appears to be a gilded life – Richard Gere as a billionaire banker, and Susan as his wife who...
  2. Film Review and competition: Albert Nobbs (with Glenn Close). Win the DVD

    1
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon I have tremendous respect and admiration for Glenn Close as an actress. Having seen her play the lead role in Albert Nobbs, it is easy to see why she was nominated for an Oscar for the role. For those unfamiliar with the film , Glenn Close plays the part of a woman having to live as a man to survive in 19th century Ireland. Throughout the film you can feel her pain as she constantly lives in fear of being discovered and fights the isolation living her life as a man brings, but with a dream of escaping from the lonely situation she finds herself in. Not a ‘feel good’ film, but a film which highlights the lengths women had to go to in order...
  3. Film Review: Dolphin Tale

    Comment
    Review by Fabafterfifty A heartwarming story, Dolphin Tale of triumph in adversity- on a number of levels. When a young dolphin (Winter) gets caught in a crab trap, she forms a strong attachment to the young boy (Sawyer) who saves her. The local marine centre is able to save her life, but unfortunately not her tail. But Winter learns to swim without it. Sadly, the unique action she develops to stay buoyant , begins to have a catastrophic impact on her spine, and again the dolphin’s life is in danger. Unless of course a groundbreaking solution can be found. Based on a true story, the film shows how man and nature can come together and help each other. Winter herself has become a symbol of hope for amputees...
  4. Morgan Freeman stars in ‘Dolphin Tale’- a film of hope and inspiration

    Comment
    Article by Fabafterfifty Morgan Freeman is one of my favourite actors. When scanning Sky Movies to choose an evening’s viewing, Morgan Freeman’s films are always first choice. So it’s good news that he has a new film about to hit the big screen.  A feel good film ideal for all the family. Inspired by an amazing true story DOLPHIN TALE is a film about Winter, a rescued dolphin who has lost her tail in a crab trap, and Sawyer, the 11-year old boy who helps save her life. Sawyer meets her at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, a marine sanctuary where she lives, and rallies friends and family alike to save Winter by convincing a pioneering doctor to create a brand new tail and by raising enough...
  5. Film Review: Everything Must Go with Will Ferrell

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon When Nick is fired from his job and returns home to find that his wife has not only left him, but changed the locks, placed all his possessions on the front lawn and put a block on their joint bank accounts, he is forced to face up to some cold hard truths. Having fallen off the wagon once too often, he is forced to confront the gravity of his situation. He also has to come to terms with being replaced at work by a much younger employee. The film is thought provoking. Finding himself effectively having to live on his front lawn, the only way he can do so legally and avoid arrest is to hold a garage sale. Nick has to come to terms with...

  7. Film Review The King’s Speech with Colin Firth

    Comment
    Article by Fabafterfifty I was totally enthralled from beginning to end. The performances from Colin Firth, Geoffrey Rush and Helena Bonham Carter were superb, as we were taken back  to a bygone era, where sense of duty and decency were admired and respected. The journey of this quiet, unassuming family man, who just happened to be born a prince, and who’s stammer caused him to be pitied and ridiculed  as he overcame his speech  impediment to be able  communicate with conviction, authority and empathy with an empire at war on  unexpectedly becoming King was nothing less than inspirational. > ...
