Angelina Jolie’s Suite ‘By The Sea’ – Review

Angelina Jolie seems to have disappointed the critics, all around the world. Her production, 'By The Sea' is an exquisite view, not only of a jaw-dropping landscape of the coast of Sourthern France, but also of Roland and Vanessa, a married couple in crisis. Now, the reason why the critics (especially the American ones) were disappointed is obvious: Angelina's piece is fabulously French; very distant from her American roots.

With that in mind, her work should be criticised from that point of view. Not many have been able to appreciate Angelina's ability to adapt everything to the kind of style she wants, like the best directors do. What's clear is not only her value, but the research that she must have done to create this slow and intimate drama. So, you'll be in for a great disadvantage if French cinema is not your cup of tea.

Although the plot is quite a weak one, the production and Angelina's presence perfectly cope with it. As said, she has embodied perfectly that French essence in every single detail: from the recreation to he

Indiana Jones 5 Confirmed

2015 was the year that made blockbuster revivals cool, with beloved franchises such as Jurassic World, Mad Max and Creed all enjoying great success, both critically and commercially.

The Seagull Theatre Review

Russian culture is synonymous with highly intellectual literature and equally strong alcohol, so the decision to stage The Seagull at the Pack and Carriage pub was an inspired one. The Seagull was written by Chekhov in the closing years of the 18th Century, and serves as a window into the relationships of the ensemble cast, while subtly describing the attitudes ...
