    Cruella

    ★★★½

    This was my first trip to the cinema in over a year. I was so excited to see this that I genuinely looked like the :D emoji the whole time!

    ★★★★½

    This was my first time watching The Shawshank Redemption - I suppose I just never got round to it before! I was amazed that I had somehow managed to avoid finding out spoilers as I was genuinely wondering what was going to happen throughout the film.

    I often find it hard to watch films without any women in them, but this was not one of those films. I was gripped by the story and the way it was being told…
