Nine to Noon – back from the summer break

By January 30, 2014February 3rd, 20142 Comments

Nine to Noon podcast iconKathryn Ryan and the team at Nine to Noon star­ted back earli­er this week after the long sum­mer break. This week, I spoke breath­lessly about the big sum­mer movies includ­ing Nebraska, The Wolf of Wall Street and American Hustle – and also took a moment to talk up The Pa Boys which opens on Waitangi Day.

    Hmm, not sure I get how Lawrence can be great in the role if she’s also mis­cast. Did you per­haps mean that she was wasted in the part?

    Agree with you about Nebraska, which I liked even more than Wolf of Wall Street. While I agree WoWS was some­what crit­ic­al of Belfert’s beha­viour, although I thought it some­what under­mined by the chummy cameo of Belfort at the end. It was an enter­tain­ing film though.

      Hi Steve

      Re: Lawrence, I think she was extremely enter­tain­ing and cre­ated a vivid char­ac­ter but she was palp­ably too young for the role and – des­pite her many gifts – I found it hard to believe in her.
