    • Wilné

      Wilné is a massive rock fan and you will most likely see her with her earphones plugged in. Due to being a very passionate and excitable person she is prone to fangirl. Drag queens fascinate her as she admires their talent and envy their confidence. (She is still trying to learn how to vogue). She believes that kindness is like a stone dropped into water; it has a ripple effect. It is one way she knows how to help make the world a better place. Loves being metal in a plastic society (dares to be different) and this can be heard on her show.

Tough Love – Lady Bird

Tough Love – Lady Bird

This was certainly a film I was excited for, because over the past few months it has been hyped up by some rave reviews and a 99% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

And if you are one for dark and honest coming of age stories, then this is the film for you! It so beautifully depicts the struggles and strains of a mother-daughter relationship, when one is ready to grow and explore but the other can’t let go.

With some humorous moments and some heartfelt truths that still form part of our reality to, the film is a very honest portrayal of the cross over from childhood to adulthood but something just fell short for me.

Whether in character interactions or rushed scenes; it just feels as if it could have been more polished. I was constantly waiting for the moment that i felt, “WOW, this is amazing” but to be honest that moment only came for me when I later sat and reflected on the film.

Yet perhaps that is the intent – to portray life as it is – messy and confusing, until you take a step back and look at things from a distance.

7/10
