    Wine Country

    ★★½

    Wine Country is a film best enjoyed with a soft blanket, comfortable couch and a glass of wine at hand; Lot's and lots of wine.

    It is a mild film and whilst it may lack in originality it makes up in its warm style. You can tell the actors are having a lot of fun with this piece, and honestly, why shouldn’t they? They’ve all worked together on numerous occasions and so this familiar chemistry is all too delicious to…

    ★★★★½

    “Growing up can be a little bit scary and weird.”

    Eighth Grade is a rare masterpiece with more emotional bite and comedic grandeur than many films to date. 

    It is an innocent film that handles its characters perfectly. All too often we see directors/writers almost forget what it's like to be a child. Not Bo Burnham, who adds the awkwardness, vulnerability and realism is caved perfectly into the 21st century. Elsie Fisher takes the role of Kayla Day and sieges…
