Why was ‘Barbie’ snubbed by Oscars? london mums magazine collage

In the glittering world of Hollywood, where dreams are spun into gold and stories shape our imagination, the Oscars are the grand stage where the best of the best take their bows. But in the midst of the glitz and glamour, there’s a tale of a plastic princess who danced her way into our hearts only to be left standing in the wings, wondering why the spotlight didn’t shine on her.

Barbie” (2023) may have received eight Oscar nominations, but that didn’t stop movie-goers from scratching their heads and wondering why its leading lady, Margot Robbie, and visionary director, Greta Gerwig, were left out in the cold.

Documentary review: The Trust Fall – Julian Assange – A man who risked everything to bring the truth to light

“The Trust Fall: Julian Assange” is an important documentary released in UK cinemas on 15th March 2024 (www.thetrustfall.org). Why should we, the people of Britain, the parents of London, care about Julian Assange? It’s about the right to freedom and to the truth. We live in free countries in Europe, and we should be able to continue to trust our democratically elected governments. Yet, Assange showed us that underneath the surface of demagogic speeches and political campaigns lies a web of spies, cruel military actions, and miscarriages of justice carried out by those same governments in the name of security. As citizens of democratic countries, we all need to find out the truth, and Assange, who has dedicated his life to unveiling the truth, should be allowed to continue his work as an investigative journalist, not imprisoned (in solitary confinement) for that. Fighting for Assange’s liberation is our duty if we want to guarantee that our children will keep living in free countries. Personally, as an author, I feel for Assange, and I feel that the world is becoming less and less free since the beginning of his imprisonment, which is part of the rapid spread of the ‘cancel culture’. Frankly, as a mother, I would not want my son to live in a world where freedom is only on paper but not out there.
