    Lambcast #566 “The Red Shoes” MOTM

Of the eight films submitted, as always there is only one winner, so for January we’ll be looking at the 1948 Powell & Pressburger classic, The Red Shoes!

    Congratulations go to the film’s champion, Meg Hyland of Meg’s Movie...

    LAMBCAST #549 SING STREET MOTM

    Sometimes it takes perseverance, hard work and trying again and again to achieve success. That was the case for this month’s Movie of the Month winner, Audrey, who put Sing Street forward time and again until it eventually defeated the other competitors.
