Jules recently moved to Toronto from New Zealand to see how the other side of the world lives – apparently it is not that different. She is the social media guru and a film reviewer for Narrative Muse and gets beyond excited about anything muse-worthy. She can also connect any actress or actor to Meryl Streep in 6 degrees of separation – that’s a lot harder than you think.
Reviews by Jules Raynes:
The performances are excellent. I was moved by how the actors stripped down to their bones to play these women with utmost authenticity.
The whole movie is a metaphor for rebirth. I was in a cinema packed full of people and yet I felt incredibly vulnerable and alone.

“Sexuality will eventually become like handwriting: there’s no right way and wrong way to do it.” – Jodi Picoult

Amy Poehler sprinkles incredibly heart-warming and hilarious stories across the pages of this book and it is utterly delicious.
As an audience, we were inspired. We were enchanted. We felt like satiated flies on the walls of Anna Wintour’s very closed door.
Why the hell watch a film about horrible things that happen to a funny lady? Belly laughs. I mean roll on the floor, hold your non-existent abs, belly laughs.
This is a story of a young man, who was loved so very much and how he was so much more than how he died. I have never cried so much in my life.
