WP Bookblog Listing
- If Beale Street Could Talk (Barry Jenkins 2018) 15 February 2019The same slow pace as Moonlight, the same lingering on beautiful black faces and bodies, plus a reverential treatment of a James Baldwin novel make this a striking film. I wasn't completely pulled into the mood, and found myself thinking about the movie rather than being immersed, but it's pretty bloody great.
- A Very English Scandal (Stephen Frears 2018) 11 February 2019Written by Russell T Davies, starring Ben Wishaw as an emotionally voltile young man and Hugh Grant as a politician with lots of charm to which the viewer is immune, this is terrific.
- Anti-Semitism (Cherie R Brown & Amy Leos-Urbel 2018) 10 February 2019A short pamphlet that offers what it says on the lid.
- Lila (Marilynne Robinson 2016) 10 February 2019The third book in the Gilead series.
- Belvoir: The Wolves (Sara DeLappe 2016) 10 February 2019A Red Line Production, directed by Jessica Arthur, this all-female production about a young US soccer team is wonderfully physical. We had front-row seats, separated from the action by stout netting to protect us from any loose footballs. It's a brilliant start to or year at Belvoir.
