This is a story of redemption, and the value one attributes to family. The reality is that Rose-Lynn is largely unlikable during the piece. Perhaps the mark of a talented actress in Buckley, we get frustrated by her behaviours, and ultimately don’t necessarily want her to succeed in her quest for country music stardom. That being said, it is worth persevering with Wild Rose, because the last fifteen minutes fills you with a sense of satisfaction.

There are a number of gags that challenge the stereotypes around young black women, and Little is largely a film of female empowerment, supported by an all-black female lead cast. The fact that, at 13, Martin herself is the driving force behind the film is pretty exceptional to say the least.

Us is every bit as chilling and unsettling as the trailer alludes. Peele, along with an astounding cast and production team deliver the kind of film that paves the way for a new era of horror, one that may just try to live among us, or at least force us to better understand ourselves. Be prepared for a slight existential crisis, a complete disenchantment with 11:11 and be kinder to your reflection, you know, just in case it turns out to be alive.

If you’re wanting a ‘hands to the mouth, gasp every five minutes, almost wet yourself from shock’ film, Greta is just not it. It does however, along with a slight fear of ever doing a nice deed again, amuse it’s audience and thrill you just enough to keep you invested until the very claustrophobic end.
