LA Noire: Revisited

Ahh, ‘The City Of Angels’… how I’ve missed you. The streets of 1947 Los Angeles sprawl before my eyes once more. I’ve already had a belly-full of it. Yes, that’s right.

Paul Feig and Jessica Sharzer’s vivacious adaptation of Darcey Bell’s 2017 addictive novel, A Simple Favour, brings together the famous faces of Anna Kendrick (Pitch Perfect), Blake Lively (The Age of Adelaide) and Crazy Rich Asians breakout Henry Golding to produce a two punch…
