After historic mid-term election results (and a frenetic press conference)... where does the US go from here?
In the space of one week, the United States has witnessed historic mid-term election results, a frenetic press conference in which Donald Trump clashed with a CNN White House correspondent – (followed by the President’s Press Secretary tweeting a doctored video alleging that the reporter sexually assaulted a female intern) – and the potentially unconstitutional firing of the Attorney General in an apparent attempt to undermine investigations into supposed Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
Mr Trump didn’t stop the controversy there: he also blamed Barack Obama for America’s lack of safety, claimed that not enough was being done to tackle Californian wildfires even though he reduced funds for forest management, and he failed to turn up to one of the memorial services in Paris commemorating the centenary of World War I because it was raining.

4 STARS - The clear-cut story of the Hollywood legend you'll fall in love with instantly.

The Double, directed by the IT Crowd's Richard Ayoade, is one of this year's most highly anticipated movies. Starring Jesse Eisenberg in the lead roles (as Simon and James), the comedy film centers on Eisenberg's character who is driven insane by the appearance of his doppelganger.
This hilarious yet dark film also features Yasmin Paige (TV's Pramface and Chicken), Mia Wasikowska (Lawless and Jane Eyre), Craig Roberts (TV's Tracey Beaker and Casualty) and Noah Tayler (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory). The film is Co-Produced by Andy Stebbing (who is releasing his new film, The Harry Hill Movie, later this year) and the Executive Producer is Michael Caine.

Enough Said is an emotional and heart-wrenching story about a divorced woman who decides to pursue a man she's interested in. However, she later learns he's her new friend's ex-Husband.
The lead roles are played by Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Eva) and the late James Gandolfini (Albert) who are both taken out of their comfort zone during this film and their skill is definitely challenged - although they both succeed to produce a hugely touching and romantic film.
We caught up with Nicole Holofcener (Director and Writer) and Julia Louis-Dreyfus on the red carpet for Enough Said on the 12th of October to find out what they thought of the film.
