Greta (2018)

Any long time reader of Oh! That Film Blog will know that I have an aversion to anything in cinema that is overly twee or quaint, and because of this, my instinctive love and fandom for Isabelle Huppert is nothing short of rampant. The iconic French actress has made a career out of revelling in…

Wild Rose (2018)

It feels like only five minutes ago that the world was obsessed with A Star Is Born. I don’t know about you, but I can’t help but feel like Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s lovefest seems to have fallen off a cliff in terms of cultural footprint and longevity. With the exception of Shallow still…

The Guernsey Literary And Potato Peel Pie Society (2018)

  There is nothing that cements the period between awards season and summer blockbuster season quite like a strangely titled, twee British drama starring all of the tried and tested period piece players from the last decade.
