Stars: Laia Costa, Josh O’Connor, Natalie Arle-Toyne, Isabelle Barth, Tam Dean Burn, Daniel Campbell, Gregor Firth, Robbie Hutton, Robin Laing, Orion Lee, Stuart Martin, James McElvar, Lisa McGrillis | Written and Directed by Harry Wootliff

Only You, directed by Harry Wootliff, stars Laia Costa as Elena and Josh O’Connor as Jake. A pair that meet in unexpected circumstances on New Year’s Eve in the back of a taxi. A chance meeting that forms a romantic relationship that skyrockets with high intensity in a ten-year age gap and insecurities of newfound love. Complications arise when the new-formed couple starts to try for a family early on in the romantic infancy and animosity begins to brew.

The intensity and performances in Harry Wootliff’s film are astounding. Laia Costa puts forward a performance nothing short of magical on-screen. A phenomenal accomplishment in an equally remarkable feature that dives deep into the testaments of love.

Movie Review – Only You (2019)

Only You, 2019.

Directed by Harry Wootliff

Starring Laia Costa, Josh O’Connor, Lisa McGrillis, Natalie Arle-Toyne, Isabelle Barth, Tam Dean Burn, Stuart Martin

Synopsis:

A chance encounter between two complete strangers, Jake (Josh O’Connor) and Elena (Laia Costa), results in them sharing a Taxi ride home on New Year’s Eve that sparks a movie-spanning relationship.

Love is a subject that has been tackled on the big-screen for time immemorial, yet Harry Wootliff’s directorial debut manages to create fresh scar tissue with its achingly realistic take on the minutiae of a modern relationship.

It might start like your average boy-meets-girl tale, with crossed wires cab-hailing acting as the meet-cute, but from thereon it’s a mirror-to-the-world mix of the embryonic euphoria of new love, followed by the appearance of insidious fracture lines that irreparably change this couple forever.

Only You is not an easy watch. It picks at

Exclusive Interview: Sophie Rundle, Stuart Martin, Steven Waddington and Luke Roskell on Jamestown series 2, power dynamics, and more

Alex Moreland talks to the cast of Jamestown – dle (Alice Sharrow), Stuart Martin (Silas Sharrow), Luke Roskell (Pepper Sharrow) and Steven Waddington (Marshal Redwick) – about power dynamics, historical drama, and more…

So, I just watched the first episode, and I quite enjoyed it. One of the things that struck me about it was that the series is ultimately about power and authority – how it manifest and who can wield it over one another. Do you think that’s fair to say?

Sophie Rundle: Very insightful. Yeah, in different platforms. There’s the political stage, but the domestic front as well, and everyone trying to survive isn’t it? I think when you go to create a new world and you have a new microcosm of society it becomes very clear what people’s greatest desires are – and you see very quickly the people that want power, and want authority,

Jamestown Season 2 – Exclusive Interviews with the cast

Author: Amanda Carnac

The characters in Sky1’s Jamestown may be brooding, conflicted and understandably depressed by their circumstances but in real life the actors couldn’t have been more upbeat. We were lucky enough to meet the cast of Jamestown on set as well as after the preview of episode 1 from series 2 and couldn’t have met a livelier bunch of people – Steven Waddington wanted to sing karaoke as soon as we handed him the microphone which made for a great start.

In the first interview we talk to Naomi Battrick, Ben Starr, Niamh Walsh, Abubakar Salim and Abiola Ogunbiyi. Naomi spoke of how her character Jocelyn had started off protected by her upper-class husband but this changes dramatically after she loses her husband at the beginning of series 2. She gave praise to the incredible set design which helped them feel ‘part of something real;’ a small village was built,

TV: Jamestown Review

  • HeyUGuys
Author: Amanda Carnac

Imagine being trapped in a tiny ship heading for America in 1617, not only are you unsure of whether you’ll make it, you also have no idea who your future husband will be if you reach your destination. The only thing you can be sure of is that even if the man who has paid for your passage turns out to be a rapist or drunkard, there’s no going back.

Writer Bill Gallagher, who also wrote Lark Rise to Candleford and Paradise, is experienced at drawing from real life events in history and when researching Jamestown, the first British settlement in America, decided he wanted to write a drama where women, despite being perceived as underdogs, use their intelligence to manipulate themselves into a position of power.

To try and turn this subject matter into a work of feminism was always going to be tricky. In

Yep, Danny Boyle is taking the deep dive into television.
