The demented killer “Mother Face” is on the loose again, this time killing from the psychiatrist’s chair. The soft focus delight of a spring morning turns dark, the curtains drenched in blood. Then comes a bit of tape hiss, some tracking issues and then the commercials start.

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.

Yesterday was the first day of December and I spent the afternoon with a group of lovely people. We were very lucky because we got to watch “It’s a Wonderful Life”, one of the top classic Christmas films.

The Lady in the Van is the new film starring Maggie Smith and Alex Jennings and tells the story of a lady who lives in a van.
The film is based on playwright Alan Bennett's original 1989 play of the same name, which also starred Maggie Smith as a miserly nomad who travels from London borough to London borough, in a clapped out old motor.

On Tuesday I was introduced to some core members of the QUAD team with a tour around QUAD, sat with the marketing team and entered the film schedule times and dates to other websites who display the films at QUAD.
A good day overall, it was nice to get to meet a lot of new people as well as understand what the QUAD does, It was a relief to find how relaxed the office environment was. An office that is thoroughly personalised by everyone there.
