True, raw, beautiful…
Juno captures the turmoil of teenage pregnancy, love and loss. There is no denying the talented performances, complimented by the witty and bright script. It’s awkward and presents friendships and relationships in their truest forms. Quite simply, there’s nothing I can say to fault it. If you haven’t seen it yet then go, go, go and immerse yourself in Juno’s dysfunctional world, and indulge in the perfect soundtrack.  


Maybe none of us really understand what we’ve lived through, or feel we’ve had enough time.
- Kazuo Ishiguro, Never Let Me Go

Never Let Me Go has to be one of the most inspiring novels I have read. Ishiguro captures a beauty and innocence in life that keeps the reader enchanted from beginning to end. The novel follows the heartfelt journeys of Ruth, Kathy and Tommy as they grow up to understand the world they live in and their purpose within it. Your heart will be touched and make you smile and cry, sometimes all at once. A stunning novel complimented by a beautiful film.
