Review: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

A heart-warming blend of blood, ice and hockey, Goon is thugging brilliant.

Is Newman the right choice by Sam Mendes for Skyfall? Forget American Beauty and things start to look promising...

The Artist

Trailer: Albatross Print E-mail
Director: Niall MacCormick
Cast: Felicity Jones, Jessica Brown Findlay, Sebastian Koch, Julia Ormond
Certificate: TBC
Release Date: Friday 14th October

A fresh, modern-day coming-of-age tale focusing on 17-year-old force of nature Emelia (newcomer Jessica Brown Findlay) who bursts into the lives of the dysfunctional Fischer family when she is hired to work in their guest house in a sleepy town on the South Coast.


Beth Fischer (Felicity Jones), also seventeen, is cramming for her A-Levels, in a desperate bid to escape to university, whilst dad Jonathan (Sebastian Koch), once a best-selling author, is suffering from writer’s block much to the annoyance of frustrated mum Joa (Julia Ormond) who runs the hotel and laments the promising acting career she once left behind.


Can Emelia and Beth escape the ties of small town existence and free themselves of the Albatross around their necks?
