Sex Education

I previously only watched the first few episodes and gave up. This time I persevered and so glad I did. There is a very sweet and kind heart to this show. The characters feel very real despite how eccentric they are. I welled up a few times in various episodes and actually laughed out loud in many. A must see show.

A really fascinating and important retelling (more of a reframing) of the original story. I loved the way it used the medium of an urban legend but mixed it with a very real struggle to make a powerful statement. Sadly I think the meaningfulness of this film will be lost on the average movie goer due to its reboot / remake style (we're all sick of reboots). This isn't one but feels like one. Not as grim or scary as I was hoping, but powerful and important.

As if we needed further proof that James McAvoy is one of the best actors of his generation, this is just yet another great film in his catalogue. It's sadly very poorly lit and so the 20 minutes that are critical to the plot are very hard to see. But the visceral performance from James make an overly familiar plot very engaging and well worth the watch.

Despite the fact that this film takes place entirely in one room with a minimal supporting cast and a narrative that plays out over a phonecall, Gyllenhaal drives the story so expertly and hooks you in effortlessly. Not a career defining performance but a thoroughly enjoyable ride that surprises and entertains in equal measure.

Very moving and well crafted film. Felt like a Russian version of Brokeback Mountain
