Screenings

“Amanda Sharp’s directorial debut is a tender and heartfelt drama, concerned with the fractured relationship between a young woman and her father. Featuring outstanding performances in the lead roles by Rose Leslie and Ray Liotta, “Sticky Notes” marks the arrival of a real and compelling new voice in American indie cinema.” John Parker, Entertainment-focus.com, 27/06/2016

“In Leslie's meatiest role to date, the erstwhile “Game of Thrones” star shoulders the bulk of the movie and makes the more clichéd aspects of the character believable. Liotta's performance is his best in years, a stark reminder of what he's capable of when given something to dig his teeth into. It's a character we've seen before – the charming but infuriating father figure – but Liotta finds pathos and humour in the role.” Adam, Seensome.com. 21/07/2016
