Hidden Gems: Anne Hathaway

Actor/Actress Hidden Gems

The movie challenge Hidden Gems starts off with Anne Hathaway. An actress who’s work I’ve enjoyed over the years but who has been in movies I’ve not liked either. She had a controversial vibe surrounding her during her Oscar campaign. Partly because there was just too much of her and apparently Anne Hathaway in small dozes is better. Also her Oscar hosting gig really didn’t do her any favours. Anyway, for this month I watched three of her movies I…

Movie

I have now gotten over the movie drought which meant that I didn’t watch any movies these past two weeks – I don’t know what happened. Maybe the fact that the Apple trailer page didn’t inspire me to watch any movies, the trailers have just died or something.
