A short history of our rail corridor debate

The debate over our disused rail corridor has long gone stale. It is acrimonious, ideological, and exhibits a strong tendency to avoid key points.

Bob Stewart appeal date set

The man found guilty of cruelty charges against a pet dog in South Golden Beach will have his fate decided in Lismore in May.

Two of the world’s legendary actors, Helen Mirren and Ian McKellen, star on screen together for the first time in this suspenseful drama about secrets, lies, and deceit.

The plot sees career con artist Roy Courtnay almost unable to believe his luck when he meets wealthy widow Betty McLeish online. As Betty opens her life and home to him, Roy is surprised to find himself caring about her, making what should be a straight forward swindle take on the ultimate stakes.

It is hard to say more about this film without spoiling it. Suffice to say, the plot has many twists and turns, and it seems seasoned watchers of this genre found them easy to predict however many cinema goers were completely blindsided, particularly by the ending. While critics and cinema goers alike acknowledge the brilliant acting and magic of the pairing of Mirren and McKellen, some found the plot slow-moving and predictable, yet others were completely captivated. It is worth seeing the movie to see into which category you fall; either way, the brilliant performances will make you feel that you haven’t wasted your money.
