About Rosie

I’m Rosie, a 17 year old film lover, cat lady, feminist and chocoholic. Despite my ever-growing interest in countless other things, I know that nothing will ever diminish my love of films, and this blog is where I share that passion! As well as films, I love theatre, traveling, reading, television and food.

    Wonderful to see a 16-year-old that is into classic cinema. Are your friends into old movies as well, or are you unique for your age group? I think you have a bright future ahead of you and a great blog. Your 1967 Film Blogathon was a terrific idea! Thanks for adding my link!

      Sadly my friends have very little interest in classic cinema, it’s something that I’ve kind of formed an interest in over the last few years! Thank you for your kind words, it really means a lot – and thanks to you for participating in the blogathon! Rosie

    Hello Rosie. Just discovered your site, which is most impressive – good info and great design too. I have been a filmfan for over 50 years now and have passed on my enthusiasm to my daughter(she is age 27). I see that your top 50 films are mostly UK/USA. Exciting to ponder your reactions to the great joys ahead for you when you really begin to explore world cinema. Here are 3 great films from the middle east for you to try, all with female directors: Persepolis(Marjane Satrapi), Caramel(Nadine Labaki) & The Apple(Samira Makhmalbaf).
    Very best of luck with your site – hope you stick with it.

      Thank you! Do you have a blog or anything of the sort about film? I’d be really interested to see it if you do! It’s funny you mention the lack of foreign films on the list – I noticed that the other day and realised that, off the top of my head, I could think of a few to add to it! It’s been a while since I updated it, but I do also need to watch more foreign films! I’ve seen Persepolis but haven’t heard of the other two so I’ll check them out.
      Thank you for taking the time to comment!

    Hello again, Rosie.
    No I don’t have a blog altho I do get to present films to 2 different u3a(Univ of the 3rd age) groups in Wyre Forest(as a film group leader) and Worcester – I also produce a film newsletter each month which includes reviews by myself and other members – would be happy to send you a copy of the latest edition if you want to see it.
    Interested to see you describe yourself as a feminist. There have been some recent reports detailing the shocking imbalance of male/female jobs/roles across the film industry from actors/directors to production staff. I always ensure that the films I show offer a proper gender balance – hence my middle east suggestions to you. I intend to show a short season of 3 films in spring 2015 which showcase the significant contributions made by women to films. My current choices are: Wadjda(Saudi Arabia), 2 Days, 1 Night(France – Dardenne Bros – with Marion Cotillard in lead role) and Carol Morley’s 2014 film The Falling. Maybe you’ve seen them?
    Just saw a dark, but wonderfully photographed(in black and white) Polish film last night – Pawlikowski’s Ida – with 2 female leads – a world apart from Clint Eastwood films, where women are kept firmly in the background!
    Best wishes

      What you do sounds incredible! It must be great fun and I’d love to see the latest newsletter. Feminism is something that is very close to my heart so to see so many people in the entertainment industry speaking up about the inequality is really great. Wadjda sounds wonderful from what I’ve heard and Marion Cotillard is reason enough to take a look at 2 Days, 1 Night. About The Falling, it’s a coincidence that you mention that because I saw it last week at LFF! I reviewed it, too, so if you’re interested in reading that, it’s the most recent post on here. Thanks for the recommendation, I’ll be sure to look into that.

    Hello again, Rosie. You can maybe check out the film page of the Wyre Forest u3a site, which shows the film programme for this and the previous 2 seasons.

    If you click the newsletter link you can download a copy of the October 2014 newsletter. You can see that I am always trying to persuade other members to contribute to the content by writing reviews – too much of the newsletter consists of my views!
    Any comments/ideas welcome.
    Best wishes
    Tony
