Question of the week: What is your favourite movie?

Riva Hiranand, 16, King George V School

My favourite movie, without a doubt, has to be Moulin Rouge. A combination of amazing acting, choreography, songs and plot adds up to one of the classic movies of all time. It never fails to make me cry!

To me, life is like a long road in which nobody knows where the next stop is. On this road, there is joy, sadness and difficulties.

AND the winner is . . . David Letterman! Please, please let that be the most widely echoed sentiment in the wake of the 67th Academy Awards, long after the teary acceptance speeches have been ridiculed, the plunging necklines splashed over 'people' pages and Forrest Gump revisited on the strength of its stunning success.
