Wait for Your Laugh
- Excerpt: Wait For Your Laugh certainly gives one a more complete portrait of a woman who was more than just Sally Rogers.
20th Century Women
- Excerpt: There have been incalculable films about young men coming of age, many of them feature father-and-son dynamics that seem strained, but otherwise redeemable. “20th Century Women” upends that traditional narrative structure by putting the strain into the maternal side of the equation.
The Little Prince
- Excerpt: All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. That adage has been used time and again to explore how children who are forced to do nothing but study and work will become dull and uninspired over time. “The Little Prince” tries adequately to convey that adage in the framework of a young girl with a mother insistent on a regimented life.
Manchester by the Sea
- Excerpt: Some people meet their emotions head on. Others flee in hopes of never having to confront them. In “Manchester by the Sea,” escape becomes impossible.
- Excerpt: While the furor and excitement of music reality shows has long faded, “Sing” takes the concept and applies it to a fascinating exploration of our differences and how to come together in spite of them.
