The last ever episode of Parks And Recreation aired on NBC last night (February 24) - and it was a near-perfect series finale. Titled 'One Last Ride', the double-length episode followed Amy Poehler's Leslie Knope as she rallied the old Pawnee parks department team for one last mission - namely, fixing a broken swing at a kids' playground - but this was really just a conceit to bring the whole gang together.
Music video director Daniel Wolfe makes his feature film debut with Catch Me Daddy, a gritty thriller set on the edge of the Yorkshire moors. His memorably grim drama, co-written with brother Matthew, offers a hellish vision of what can happen when a young girl's lifestyle conflicts with the strict values of her Pakistani family. In this exclusive clip, Laila (Sameena Jabeen Ahmed) shows off her dance moves to Patti Smith's 'Land' while her boyfriend Aaron (Conor McCarron) looks on - it's a scene the director has called "the heart of the film".
The 87th Academy Awards take place in Los Angeles this Sunday (February 22), but who's going home empty-handed, and who's leaving the Dolby Theatre clutching 3.85 kg of gold-plated britannium (that's what the iconic Oscar statuette is made of, apparently)?
Appropriate Behaviour is the acclaimed debut film from actor-writer-director Desiree Akhavan - Girls' Lena Dunham loved it so much, she gave Akhavan a part in the latest season of her cult HBO show. (She plays Chandra, Hannah's not so friendly classmate at the Iowa Writers' Workshop). Anyway, in the Brooklyn-based Appropriate Behaviour, Akhavan stars as Shirin, a woman in her twenties struggling to move on after breaking up with Maxine (Rebecca Henderson), her first girlfriend after years of dating guys.
Any big screen reboot is a tricky business - how do you make something relevant to a modern audience without sacrificing what made it so popular in the first place? Rebooting Ghostbusters is an especially tough task, though, because the original 1984 film (and, to a lesser extent, its 1989 sequel Ghostbusters II) still inspire such affection. Ask "who you gonna call?" and everyone knows exactly which film you're referencing.
