After months of speculation, debate and online clickbait, Oscar day has finally arrived and here’s the lowdown…
If American seniors were feeling left out of the British vogue for ‘grey-pound cinema’ about older women entering a new chapter of their life (we’re looking at you, Finding Your Feet), then new comedy: Book Club will be the answer to their prayers.

It wasn’t so long ago that lame, computer-animated family films had the decency to announce themselves by looking every bit as cheap as their committee-written scripts. This is no longer so.
