"The game is afoot..."

The Broken Scales

PROMPT: Flash Fiction Competition 2019

Instant Family: An Instant Hit?

PROMPT: Film Review Competition 2019

With gut-busting comedy, relatable moments, and Mark Wahlberg (the highest paid actor on the planet), should Instant Family be your next go-to movie? 
 
Sean Ander’s latest big-budget film aims to highlight the highs and lows of first-time parenthood. A rather unprepared middle-aged couple (played by Rose Byrne and Mark Wahlberg), decide to adopt children after looking through a tear-inducing foster care website. After finding their supposedly perfect match; a headstrong but witty teenage girl (played by up-and-coming actress Isabela...
