    An ode to cinema! (Or something like that.)

    Gotta give it to you Damien, you crammed a lot in here it’s quite the achievement, just gotta let some of the scenes breathe a little.

    Sidney Flanigan and Talia Ryder are a duo like no other. Repeat goosebumps on a second watch are an indicator of the quality of their acting, and director Eliza Hittman’s light-touch - long close-ups shot in the greyhound and tears that come in the consultation room. A terrific piece of filmmaking.

    We should all do our bit, I’ll do mine by not watching this a second time.
