Review: Dude Bro Party Massacre III

By Daryn Shepherd on Thursday 28th January

Youth Review: The Danish Girl

By Collective Review by QUAD Youth Review on Wednesday 13th January

It's Oscar contender time in movie land! A time for big names, big attention seeking films and big attention seeking performances.  So to celebrate this, Youth Review decided we’d do a big attention seeking review of The Danish Girl, the new film from Oscar heavy weight Director Tom Hooper. Starring Eddie Redmayne and Alicia Vikander and telling the story of Einar Wegener’s transformation into Lili Elbe and the subsequent development in Gerda Wegener’s popularity as an artist, The Danish Girl has Oscar potential written all over it.

Christmas is nearly here and with it a barrage of blockbusters from the US are landing in cinemas across the land! The new offering from Director Todd Haynes, Carol, is one such heavy weight and given the exemplary reviews, Youth Review thought we’d check it out for ourselves.
Adapted from Patricia Highsmith’s novel The Price of Salt, Carol is set in an idealised 1950’s America and tells the story of Carol Aird and Therese Belivet played by Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara, who meet and fall in love.
