Movie Review: Tully (2018)

Each time that screenwriter Diablo Cody and director Jason Reitman team up, they create a singular female character that walks onscreen feeling fully formed and armed with lots to say. First it was Ellen Page’s precocious pregnant teen in “Juno,” then it was Charlize Theron’s perpetually perturbed author Mavis Gary in “Young Adult,” and now…

Movie Review: 20 Weeks (2017)

As audiences screamed and jumped in the mostly silent screenings of “A Quiet Place” over the weekend, I found myself facing a pregnancy-related horror film of a different type. Leena Pendharkar’s 20 Weeks follows a young couple as they deal with an unplanned pregnancy and then subsequently with the baby having a physical disability and…

Movie Review: When the Bough Breaks (2016)

When I first saw the trailers for When the Bough Breaks, I was excited. It looked like “Obsessed,” “The Hand That Rocks the Cradle,” or “Single White Female,” except with fewer white people (something most movies these days could benefit from). When I first sat down in the theater, I was still excited. The pacing…

Movie Review: The Light Between Oceans (2016)

The conflict between satisfying one’s emotional needs and doing the right thing is spotlighted in Derek Cianfrance’s (“The Place Beyond the Pines”) intense drama The Light Between Oceans.

Movie Review: Maggie’s Plan (2015)

Greta Gerwig plays Maggie, a young woman who wants to have a baby, but without the icky complications of the normal method. It’s artificial insemination all the way for her, and she has a guy picked out. His name is Guy, which is a good example of the offbeat humor in Maggie’s Plan. The plan…

Movie Review: The Devil Incarnate (2013)

On their honeymoon to Miami, Holly and Trevor Davidson (Graci Carli and Rod Luzzi) decide they’re going to try out all the touristy things they can find. After being disappointed by a shoddy palm reader (because visits to psychics is a touristy thing to do), they encounter a strange man in the street who suggests…

Movie Review: Locke (2013)

People make mistakes, especially when they are young; however, it takes a big person to acknowledge them and do what it is necessary to set things right. While “doing the right thing” can indeed go a long way towards regaining self-respect, it always has to be balanced with how it will affect others. Just ask…
