As a 17-year-old Freda Kelly was the envy of thousands of teenage girls: she was secretary to the Fab Four and ran their fan club. Now, in a new documentary about her role, she has finally decided to open up.
These days, Freda Kelly leads an uncomplicated life. Every morning, she drives from her home in the Wirral to a legal firm in Birkenhead, where she is secretary to one of the senior partners. She starts her working day at 9am, dealing with legal files, setting up appointments, liaising with mental health tribunals and typing up letters at a steady speed of 50wpm. On her desk, the stapler is labelled with her name in case anyone should be tempted to claim it as their own. She has been working here for 21 years.
Of late, Freda, 68, has found herself at the centre of some unexpected attention. She finds this baffling. “I mean,” she says with a slight shake of the head, “who wants to hear the secretary’s story?”
In the case of this particular secretary, hundreds of thousands of people around the world would be a conservative estimate. Because Freda Kelly isn’t just any old secretary. For a period of 11 years from 1962, she was, in fact, secretary to the Beatles.
This week, she is the subject of a new documentary, Good Ol’ Freda, in which she gives a fascinating behind-the-scenes glimpse into the 20th century’s most famous band. Despite the acres of print and miles of footage that have been devoted to telling the “true” story of the Beatles, Kelly has never before spoken out. And yet during the time she worked for them, from the age of 17, she became part of their inner circle and was a first-hand witness to their astonishing rise to fame. Her duties included working for Beatles manager Brian Epstein and managing the fan club. At the height of the band’s success, a newspaper headline referred to her as: “The Most Coveted Girl in the World”. She is one of the few employees to have stuck with the band for the entire time they were together. Today, she is one of the few to survive.
“Good Ol’ Freda feels like a peek behind the curtain of one of the biggest bands in history. If this is the last true story of The Beatles, then it’s a remarkable tale full of magnificent triumphs, devotion, sorrow, and maturity.” – THE EXAMINER

Emanuel (Kaya Scodelario), a troubled girl, becomes preoccupied with her mysterious, new neighbor (Jessica Biel), who bears a striking resemblance to her dead mother. In offering to babysit her newborn, Emanuel unwittingly enters a fragile, fictional world, of which she becomes the gatekeeper.
This film is about, among other things, dealing with loss, motherhood and relationships with mothers. Not being able to be a mother but wanting to, not having a mother and wanting one. It may not sound exciting, or it may sound like a set-up for a romantic comedy of sorts, but this film has elements of horror, mystery, surrealism and gets quite intense at times. The film while it is dramatic and has many moments of the above is surprisingly comedic which helps balance the darker aspects of the film. Few films can pull off the level of comedy and heart- breaking reality that this film employs.
If you like really long drawn out dramatic movies that never seem to get anywhere fast, but that finally pay out fully, and with extra butter. Then you will Enjoy this movie a lot.

Sydney Schanberg is a New York Times journalist covering the civil war in Cambodia. Together with local representative Dith Pran, they cover some of the tragedy and madness of the war, in Phnom Penh.
When the American forces leave, Dith Pran sends his family with them, but stays behind himself to help Schanberg cover the event. As an American, Schanberg won't have any trouble leaving the country, but the situation is different for Pran; he's a local, and the Khmer Rouge are moving in.
The Killing Fields manages to edge out even Saving Private Ryan, and without a doubt, there's no better war film out there that's done a better job of capturing the realistic details and emotional loss of the time period (that being, the 70's in Cambodia/Vietnam).
The performances all around superb without exception. Haing S. Ngor who plaiyed Dith Pran, who was tragically killed a few years ago during a street robbery in LA, delivers a riveting, emotionally wrenching turn as the guide who is trapped in Cambodia and forced to fight for his life. He deservingly won the Oscar, though it's a shame he was snubbed for the best actor award. Inarguably, he's the film's central character and he also has more screen time than top-billed Sam Waterston.
The Killing Fields is a suspenseful and exhilarating experience, a journey through an apocalyptic landscape that features one shocking image after another. Watch, and you'll see why the film is so acclaimed.

When famous DJ Alan Partridge’s radio station is taken over by a new media conglomerate, it sets in motion a chain of events which see Alan having to work with the police to defuse a potentially violent siege.
The plot is pretty flimsy but when you have a character like Alan Partridge you really don’t need much of one. The jokes and laughs keep flowing and whilst some miss the mark there are plenty of scenes that will have tears running down your face. Some of the old favourites like Lynn and Michael (slightly superfluous in this) are here but this is all about Alan.
“More than 20 years after Alan Partridge first appeared in BBC Radio’s On the Hour, he’s still relentlessly hilarious, deeply embarrassing and completely loveable.” – SHADOWS ON THE WALL
“Have to say, this is the funniest film I’ve seen in a fair few years now. I’m a massive Partridge fan but these cinema outings for TV characters can fall on their face… this didn’t… I dragged the wife along who’s NOT a fan and even she had tears in her eyes laughing her head off… whole screening was packed and everyone loving it. If you DON’T like Partridge, you won’t like this… simple as that… however if you do, be ready for a fantastic film.” – PUGHEAVEN

Bophana Center is honored to present an exhibition with works of French photographer Gabriel Veyre, as part of this year’s Photo Phnom Penh festival.
In 1889, the then governor of Indochina, Paul Doumer, commissioned him to make images of the region and to exhibit them in the Exposition Universelle of Paris in 1900. For one year, Veyre traveled throughout Indochina and the most breathtaking photos were taken after visiting the Angkor temples in Cambodia!
Free admission, all are welcome!
Exhibition: Monday to Friday, 8am to 6pm Saturday, 2pm to 6pm
Until: January 03
