Here We Are review – superb performances and insight in Israeli autism drama

40 Uitsigte0 Opmerkings

Moving but unsentimental, this Israeli drama is a perfect example of how a cinematic story becomes paradoxically more universal by being very specific about people and places. It explores an intense relationship betwe...

Louis Rees-Zammit doubles up as superb Gloucester rout Northampton

57 Uitsigte0 Opmerkings

It is not supposed to be like this. No relegation is meant to leave those losers languishing at the bottom of the table with nothing to play for. No jeopardy, no point. Nobody told Gloucester. The Premiership’s 10th-p...

Sam Braysher Trio: Dance Little Lady, Dance Little Man review – superb serpentine sax

30 Uitsigte0 Opmerkings
