After such a long gap before my recent William Shakespeare quiz, I thought I’d better not leave long before my next one. And I wanted to do an actor who I’ve long respected and admired. I remember Jake Gyllenhaal well from when I first saw him, in the first film in this quiz. I could neither spell or pronounce his surname, but remember thinking just what a future this guy had. I’ve been delighted to see how far along he has come. Do you have a favourite role of his? How did you do this time around?
It’s been a fun year for films, with long awaited remakes, reboots and sequels, exciting new adaptations and original talents coming to the fore. Not that there weren’t disappointing efforts along the way of course. How well do you remember the film year just going? Are there any that stood out either for positive or negative reasons? Below is a super-size quiz on a random mix of films released in the UK within the past 12 months.
