Posted Sep 4, 2019

Posted Aug 22, 2019

After the Wedding (2019) Anne Brodie Williams plays her emotions right under the surface but holds strong enough not to fall apart, whereas Moore is way over the top, who ultimately, betrays herself (and us) by overplaying her big scene and ending for me, right there. EDIT
Posted Aug 15, 2019
Where'd You Go, Bernadette (2019) Anne Brodie Richard Linklater's latest oeuvre is certainly illuminating and funny at times, but it is Blanchett's performance that matters, this flawed heroine with the strength to struggle survive and will herself well through creativity. EDIT
