Alright alright alright. It’s Matthew McConaughey’s 54th birthday so why not celebrate by enjoying something from his back catalogue?

World Kindness Day
We’re celebrating kindness by looking back at some of the kindest characters that have graced our films.

Samwise Gamgee whose unwavering friendship gives Frodo the strength he needs in The Lord of The Rings, and lastly the inspirational – and real life – Bryan Stevenson in Just Mercy, who has dedicated his career in law to fighting social injustices. Which characters do you think of for being kind?
