Book of the week: The Phone addiction workbook by Hilda Burke

Oct 06 2019

The Phone addiction workbook by debut author Hilda Burke is an un-putdownable self-aid manual that is so effective in helping you to detox yourself from phone addiction that by the time you have finished reading it, you have lost interest in the smartphone altogether.

Despite my best efforts to keep away from phone distractions, I recently realised that I am actually hooked on the instant gratification effect from receiving notifications of friends’ messages and likes on social media.

Chatting to film director Rupert Goold about Judy starring Renee Zellweger

Oct 02 2019
I have caught up with film director Rupert Goold in Central London about his latest movie Judy starring Renee Zellweger, the biographical story of one of the biggest entertainment legends in the world, Judy Garland. Judy bounces back and forth between Garland’s teenage years in Hollywood and the twilight of her career, when she took a strenuous job as a singer at a London nightclub in order to raise enough money to pay her debts and to reunite with her two younger children being cared for by her ex-husband Sid Luft back in the States. Goold explained to me how he has brought the story of Judy’s search for love and a way home to the big screen, making parallels to The Wizard of Oz, and why filmmaking makes him feel powerful. Judy lands in UK Cinemas from 4 October 2019.
