    FILM: LADYBIRD (MA15+) in our Armchair Cinema 

    In Lady Bird, Greta Gerwig reveals herself to be a bold new cinematic voice with her directorial debut, excavating both the humor and pathos in the turbulent bond between a mother and her teenage daughter. Christine "Lady Bird" McPherson (Saoirse Ronan) fights against but is exactly like her wildly loving, deeply opinionated and strong-willed mom (Laurie Metcalf), a nurse working tirelessly to keep her family afloat after Lady Bird's father (Tracy Letts) loses his job. Set in Sacramento, California in 2002, amidst a rapidly shifting American economic landscape, Lady Bird is an affecting look at the relationships that shape us, the beliefs that define us, and the unmatched beauty of a place called home.


    P.S. We can also help out with finding your mum the ideal gift with our fresh range of pretty and purposeful goods.  Gardener, cook, booklover, foodlover, homemaker, just your mum - there's likely something to suit.  (Half of us at Nest are mums and we pretty much stock Nest with things we'd love for ourselves)

    FILM:  Just To Be Sure (ÔTEZ-MOI D'UN DOUTE)

    OFFICIAL SELECTION – 2017 CANNES INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL – DIRECTORS’ FORTNIGHT
    OPENING NIGHT GALA – 2017 ODESSA INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL
    The breakout French hit of the 2017 Cannes International Film Festival, where it premiered in the Directors’ Fortnight to multiple, raucous standing ovations, writer/director Carine Tardieu’s charming romantic comedy JUST TO BE SURE is a winning tale of parenthood, love and family, both lost and found.

    “Rich in comedy and human emotion. This one is for the grown-ups. A movie about the extraordinary lives of ordinary people. Tardieu builds her story with infinite but invisible care.”
    Paul Byrnes, THE SYDNEY MORNING HERALD

    “A thoroughly enjoyable experience for holiday viewing. Filled with amusing details and throwing up serious questions along the way, the principle one being the role of the father. De France, as always, lights up the screen whenever she appears.”
    David Stratton, THE AUSTRALIAN

    “The comedy favourite of Cannes. Invigorating and intelligent.”
    Pierre Vavasseur, LE PARISIEN

    Ophelia Daguin, ELLE MAGAZINE

    Erwan, an unshakeable mine-clearing expert, suddenly loses his footing when he learns that his father is not his father. Despite all the tenderness he feels for the man who raised him, Erwan discreetly sets out to learn more about and to find his father. He turns out to be an elderly and very endearing man named Joseph, who Erwan becomes fond of. As good things come in pairs, Erwan crosses paths with the elusive Anna, who he undertakes to seduce. But one day when he pays Joseph a visit, Erwan realizes that Anna is in fact his half-sister. This bomb is even harder to defuse because his adoptive father now suspects that Erwan is hiding something from him.
