Bar The Farewell – which I’ve already seen and is exquisite, so needed inclusion on my list – I’ve been saving these for the big screen for the full immersive popcorn (or snuck in supermarket treats) experience. My picks are a mixture of entertaining, empowering and a bit nuts (reflecting my true self), with the odd I-actually-want-to-know-about-this documentary thrown in, because I like to have something up my sleeve in case a particularly bad batch of small talk runs dry. Nothing like corrupt politics to liven up a dull conversation.
Also, there is something so internally warming about a wee book like The Little Prince bringing back forgotten languages and identities through its inclusive, curious nature of a plot. You know, for when rubbish men in power have made you sad enough. — Jessica Hof, Wellington Intern
