A Kid For Two Farthings Review


Good
What's a farthing? Well in old Britain, it was a quarter of a penny. Not a hell of a lot.

What's a kid? Well in this case, it's a baby goat with a misshapen horn... and our little hero Joe (Jonathan Ashmore, in his sole film role) thinks that kid's a unicorn. Or as he screeches endlessly, "A you-neeeee-corn!!!!"

The Prime Of Miss Jean Brodie Review


Very Good
Miss Jean Brodie (Maggie Smith) doesn't much care for the provencial attitudes of pre-WWII Edinburgh. She doesn't much care for traditional teaching methods, instead schooling the girls in her charge about art, love, passion, and so on. A primitive Dead Poets Society, Brodie encourages less-than-ladylike behavior, and not just because she's smooching guys in the classrooms when she thinks no one is looking. Smith is excellent -- and won an Oscar for the role -- helping to elevate the film above what can often be a somewhat stuffy character study.

Brief Encounter (1946) Review


Excellent
Fabulous classic directed by David Lean, with the unforgettable Celia Johnson as a prim and proper British housewife tempted to have an affair with a stranger (Trevor Howard) she met at the train station. Atmospheric and heartbreaking in its romanticism, it's a must-see for fans of love stories. But be warned: It was remade in 1974 as one of the worst films of its era. They just don't make 'em like they used to.
