Coming to a cinema near you this March…

Released tomorrow on the first of the month, ‘The Aftermath’ features Keira Knightley (Pride and Prejudice), Alexander Skarsgård (Big Little Lies television series) and Jason Clarke (Zero Dark Thirty). Based on the Rhidian Brook novel of the same name, the film is set in Hamburg, Germany in the aftermath of the Second World War where, during that bitter winter, a love triangle is ignited. 

One week later, an entirely different film will hit the screen. After the DC Extended Universe delivered ‘Wonder Woman’ in 2017, witness the arrival of ‘Captain Marvel’ into the all-conquering Marvel Cinematic Universe. Brie Larson (Room) is the former U.S. Air Force pilot Carol Danvers who becomes the superhero Captain Marvel while Samuel L. Jackson makes his ninth appearance as Nick Fury.

Directed by Peter Hedges, ‘Ben Is Back’ opens on 15 March and features his son, Lucas Hedges (Lady Bird) as the eponymous character with Julia Roberts (Pretty Woman) as his mother. Similarly to ‘Beautiful Boy’, we follow a parent as they try to help their child overcome their substance addictions

Winner of the Volpi Cup Award for Best Actor at the Venice International Film Festival last year and nominated for an Oscar and Golden Globe in the same category, Willem Dafoe portrays the Dutch painter Vincent van Gogh in ‘At Eternity’s Gate’. Opening on 29 March, the film is set in the south of France during van Gogh’s final years.

I attended Dunfermline High School from 2010 to 2016. I wrote my own column called ‘Adam’s Adventures’ and other articles for the school magazine, the ‘Pupils’ Press’, for its first 12 issues over three years and solely edited the last four editions. I created the official high school ‘Yearbook DVD’ and produced the exclusive 2016 calendar during my last year, independently. I also volunteered at the school mathematics shop, the ‘Stationery Village’, for three years and was appointed prefect for four years. I am currently in third year studying the BA (Hons) Journalism course at Edinburgh Napier University and contribute as an arts writer to The Edinburgh Reporter. I have achieved The Duke of Edinburgh’s (Bronze) Award and received grade five level certification for electronic keyboard from Trinity College London. In my spare time, I enjoy photography and travelling by railway, catching up with my friends and family and visiting my caravan away in the country. I must admit that I love good food which is both a thrilling and dangerous relationship.
