Movie Review: The Sunlit Night (2019)

Jenny Slate’s latest dram-rom-com vehicle, The Sunlit Night, seems like a bit of a rehash of her previous film, “Obvious Child.” There are certainly some broad similarities: Her character Frances has just gotten out of a relationship and she’s in a slump both romantically and professionally.

Movie Review: Summerland (2020)

2020 is far from perfect. The world seems to be going in always more chaotic directions, with no sign of ever slowing down.
