Calling all fans of fast-paced narratives. The movie version of Bullet Train by Japanese author Kotaro Isaka hit the screens this summer.

With a star-studded cast including Brad Pitt, Sandra Bullock and Joey King, the story follows five assassins on a bullet train from Tokyo to Morioka, who come to realise that their missions are intertwined with one another, resulting in a lot of action taking place on the ride through the Japanese capital.



Everything I Know About Love


Book-to-screen adaptation


Based on Dolly Alderton’s best-selling memoir Everything I Know About Love, this new show is set back in 2012 and will follow childhood best friends Birdy and Maggie in a London house-share.

Split into seven parts, the TV series, starring Emma Appleton and Bel Powley, showcases what life is like as a millennial, taking us through friendship, love, heartbreak and above all – finding peace within yourself.



Mr Malcolm’s List

This new motion picture, inspired by Suzanne Allain’s novel, stars Divergent actor Theo James. An escapist love story, the narrative follows Mr Malcolm on his search to find a loving wife who meets his long list of criteria.

The novel gives us likeable characters, humour and a gripping storyline – and we’re certain the film version, directed by Emma Holly Jones, will hit the spot.
