Long Shot (2019)

Long Shot surprised me. I went into the film with little to no expectations given the fact that Seth Rogen starred in it.

It featured one of my favourite actresses today, Alicia Vikander, in one of her steamiest roles yet. Decorated in elegant dresses of the era, she … More Tulip Fever (2017)
