This week, instead of the usual Sunday To Sunday Movie News, Seamus Gane looks at Captain America: The First Avenger.
I’ve fallen behind the blog-pack these last two days, with a family birthday and two friends fleeing the country the film festival had to take a back seat to real life. But there is still a week left of MIFF and plenty of time to reach that golden ’60 Films’ finishing line.
