With things getting a bit dark in Poldarkland (perhaps that's why John Nettles keeps saying PolDARK, with the emphasis on the second syllable), it was a relief that there wasn't too much sea-staring this time, which is in danger of becoming a cliché. But how will Ross get out of this one? Any idea? In his favourite words: "None whatsoever."
With talk of houmous and gluten free this and that, Bad Moms is the most American, middle class depiction of motherhood but as long as you know this before seeing it, you'll enjoy it. Thankfully, Kunis' beautiful, mesmerising, gigantic eyes are enough to distract you from the filo pastry thin plot and lack of gags.
Hospices also have an important part to play in raising awareness of the new national commitment to end of life care. Their longstanding expertise in providing quality, compassionate care and their widespread links with organisations across their local communities, means their role will be crucial to help deliver the transformation in care for dying people that the Government desires and which is so urgently needed.
When visiting Los Angeles it's hard to decide which area to call home. Are you more Bellini's in Beverley Hills or happy hour in WeHo, the pavements in Downtown or the sand of Long Beach. And if you think area is difficult, the next step is choosing the right hotel. Los Angeles has something for everyone, and on my most recent trip, I discovered that there's no place quite like Farmer's Daughter.
My son at five (he's now eight) had echoes of all these traits, and seeing them clustered together strikes a sad chord pitch perfectly. Though as the story progresses, it's clear the boys are a million miles apart, which is a boon for autism awareness; people with autism differ wildly from each other, but the spectrum encompasses some spottable similarities.
In London, great food comes with a view. The City's tallest buildings offer a wide range of options to indulge on breakfast, all-day meals and fancy dinners and it's undeniable that skyscrapers serve up some of London's best meals. I went on a quest to find London's top three dishes to be enjoyed while sky-high, admiring one of the world's most beautiful cities from above.
While Room has the makings of a terrifyingly real horror story or psychological thriller, director Lenny Abrahamson refuses to diminish or cheapen Donoghue's life-affirming story with gimmicks or horror-movie-frights, and instead creates a heart-breaking, and paradoxically heart-warming, masterpiece of cinema which tells a story of human spirit, hope and the incomparable love between a mother and her child.
There's a brief but reflective detour in this hugely ambitious, perhaps definitive, telling of the autism story, some hundred or so pages in. Steering from the text's omnipresent objectivity and exhaustively researched facts, the authors make a personal observation that, I believe, has universal resonance.
If it's possible to feel an audience leaning in to hear and appreciate the emotion in every note, that's the effect that Beth created through her solo Beautiful Dreamer. There is something other-worldly about Beth's presence on stage and her hypnotic rendering of this classic song definitely left everyone wanting more.
I don't think women are being roused to stand up against oppression at all. The film ends by saying, well look what a good place we are in now compared to countries like Saudi Arabia, look how far we've come. Thank God those women did what they did so we could have the vote today. This is not good enough.
