Cinema is all around us. We grow up watching movies, we learn from them, we share them. At Trinity Film Review, we know what makes a movie great and what makes a movie not-so-great. We want to hear you tell us why.

The third in TFR’s coverage of VMDIFF, with reviews by Cathal Eustace and Katie McKenna.
