FILM OF THE YEAR

Margaret Pomeranz and David Stratton’s reviewed "2020 The Movie". It’s absolutely hilarious!


My favourite scenes in the movie were:

  • We supported local business es (and slowed the relentless globalisation)

  • True Work-Life Integration emerged (slightly unbalanced at times)

  • All the "co-workers" that joined in our Zoom calls

  • Appreciation for how hard Nurses work every day

  • Appreciation for what Teachers do every day

  • Best Quote of the movie: "You're on mute."


Now, I give you - Margaret and David - to have the final say on the blockbuster "2020 The Movie":



This sketch was brilliantly written by James Schloeffel from The Shovel as part of #WarOn2020, which is produced by Chaser digital and directed by Victoria Zerbst and Jenna Owen.


Thank you, one and all, for a great year! ❤️
