Recommended Film – ‘Dean Spanley’

If you get the chance, take a look at this delightfully whimsical film set in Edwardian England in the early 1900s.

It is an adaptation of a novella written by fantasy author Lord Dunsany which was published in 1936 and is one of those rare films which doesn’t quite fit into any specific genre apart from being funny in a quirky British way.

SCARLETT Johansson is one of Hollywood’s top female stars with a string of hits, such as Lost In Translation, Girl with a Pearl Earring and Vicky Cristina Barcelona to her name. So it is somewhat of a surprise to see her turn up taking the lead role in this independent, low-budget British offering.
