    What will happen if you let Wes Anderson direct Downton Abbey? Well this is pretty close and it’s fantastic!

    The story about the two cousins Fanny and Linda going from adolescence to married women in the twenties and forward is a joy to watch from start to finish.

The seven year old Ryder Allen is incredible in his role! Maybe we should keep an eye on him in the future. It also has a great soundtrack.

    Not a necessary watch but worth the time.

    It’s not easy to make a highfalutin, complex space opera watchable and let alone believable but Villeneuve manages to do just that with good margin. It’s basically the Jesus/Moses/Messiah story told in a Shakespeare world with a lot of characters and spectacle. Nothing new but it works so incredible well from start to finish and my first thought after finishing it was, I want to see it again. No, I…
