MOVIE: “LET HIM GO”

I couldn't wait to see Focus Features "LET HIM GO," based on the Larry Watson novel about grandparents who set out to rescue their grandson from the clutches of a dangerous family. I was not disappointed, but here's a warning--the film packs a heart-crushing wallop. Set in the late 50's, "Let Him Go" is a [...]

This weekend is a mixed bag and involves Mick Jagger and William Shakespeare. If only they had worked together. I couldn't wait to see the THE BURNT ORANGE HERESY a Sony Classics release beginning August 7 at West Newton Theater. For this movie critic/arts reporter, what could be better than an art heist film starring [...]

MOVIES– SWEET & SOUR: “THE SECRET: DARE TO DREAM”/ “THE RENTAL”

By |2020-08-03T16:22:10-05:00August 3rd, 2020|Drama, Family, Horror, Kids, Movies, Romance, Thriller|0 Comments

These two films couldn't be more different and I liked them both-- one in spite of its being outright awful and ridiculous, the other because it pretty much accomplished what it set out to do. THE SECRET: DARE TO DREAM stars Katie Holmes as a down-on-her-luck widow named Miranda raising three kids when [...]

It was a notably lackluster year for movies. I searched in vain all last spring and most of the summer for something exciting, challenging, beautiful to see. It wasn't until this fall that a tidal wave of smart, absorbing, artful films were released before awards season, and I did my best to stay afloat in [...]
