In recent years I have found myself at odds with viewing numerous period dramas about famous white people overcoming adversity and Meryl Streep performances where she plays the role very ‘big’.

‘Tamara Drewe’ Gets Around, and Has Fun

Of all the films adapted from graphic novels released this year, Tamara Drewe will probably be the one met with the least amount of fanfare.  Despite being based on a very popular British comic strip by Posy Simmonds, it is not one about having a flashy genre premise.  As fun as those films can be […]
