A Bad Moms Christmas
Three already overburdened moms deal with the added stress of the holidays, which includes a visit from each of their mothers.
A Bad Moms Christmas is raunchy and riddled with profanity, but it’s also bittersweet and a movie most daughters and moms can relate to. While I went into this movie with pretty low expectations, I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked it!
Roman J Israel, Esq.
Roman J Israel is a Los Angeles-based attorney whose idealism and activism are called into question after an upending series of events.
As always, Denzel Washington gives a superb performance as the socially awkward yet legal savant attorney. If you are in the mood for a very good drama, Roman J Israel, Esq. is the film for you.
Three Billboards Outside Ebbing,
After her daughter is brutally murdered, Mildred Hayes rents three billboardson which she places provocative messages to catch the attention of local law enforcement.
A true gem, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri is more of a glimpse into the protagonist’s life than a story with a beginning, middle and end. Unexpected and unpredictable, with very human characters, this film is one of my top ten for the year.
Set in Sacramento in 2002, Christine “Lady Bird” McPherson is a high school senior desperate to escape her hometown. While she and her mother love each other deeply, they have the same opinionated, strong-willed personalities which inevitably leads to clashes.
The only file to ever receive a perfect 100 rating from Rotten Tomatoes, I expect the cast and film to receive many award nominations. This funny and touching film perfectly portrays the mother/teenage daughter relationship.
