Day 11 – Come to Cannes!

You have to come to Cannes to truly appreciate it. Just returned from sipping cocktails on the Carlton Terrace where celebrities float in and out of the grandest hotel on the Croisette…whilst the music’s thumping at the beach parties on the other side of the road, the night lit up by purple fluorescent lights and […]

Day 9 – Twilight Scene, Murky Paperboy and Zac’s Rack

We were sitting poolside at The Majestic hotel yesterday evening, around twilight…watching a rather hefty  Bob Weinstein ordering drinks, when we heard SCREAMS!

Day 6 – Getting Trashed with Jeremy Irons

In this case it was ‘Trashed’, directed by Candida Brady and featuring […]

Lawless starring Shia LaBeouf – a review & press conference

I started my Saturday morning running to the Palais not sure if I’d get in with my yellow card. The lowest of the lows, but got there with no queues and straight in with 45 minutes to spare. I was exhausted and almost asleep in my chair before the movie started but there was no […]
