Kathryn 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.
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.
