Thoroughbreds

Two upper-class teenage girls in suburban Connecticut rekindle their unlikely friendship after years of growing apart. Together, they hatch a plan to solve both of their problems-no matter what the cost.

I’m a fan of anything that Olivia Cooke (Me, Earl and the Dying Girl) is in and a new fan of Anya Taylor-Joy who got her big break from Split. This movie is a little bit of a thriller, which is why it’s interesting to me, but it also makes me feel sad knowing Anton Yelchin has passed and that this is one of his last films.

Newness

Romantic dramas and romantic comedies are what I live for. I didn’t know what to expect when I first watched the trailer for Newness, but I did recognize the swiping of the dating apps – something we all know very well here in San Francisco and just about anywhere? The director of this film is also the same person who did “Like, Crazy” which is another one of my favorites. I’m excited to see Nicholas Hoult in another film though and am really curious to see this once this comes out.

Rotten Apples

In 2017, it seems like nearly everyone from the entertainment industry has been accused of sexual assault and/or sexual harassment and guess what – men? There are no varying levels or degrees to which one is worse than the other. It’s all bad.

It has been a disappointing year for all of this, but nothing makes me more proud than hearing every single woman step up, share their story, and call out their accusers. Rotten Apples is a new website that lets you search a TV series or film and tells you which alleged harassers are tied to it. Since I’m watching Rush Hour with my family this evening, I decided to type it into the search bar and look what popped up for me. Not even that is safe. While the website seems interesting and of course, informative – it really does help to drive awareness in seeing how many harassers are involved in the things that we all watch.

The Florida Project

I’m such a little sucker for films that have kids in them! I remembered seeing the trailer for “The Florida Project’ recently during another film so when Manan asked me last Saturday if I wanted to see an almost 10:30 showing of the film, I couldn’t pass it up. Except, I almost did because that was going to end way past my bedtime. What I love about films like this is that the trailer is actually not the most accurate depiction of what the film is about. I thought I was getting a film about this young girl and her friends running around and I would’ve settled for that even without an actual plot. Anyways, Brooklynn Prince who plays “Moonee” in the film is such a gem. You can’t help falling in love with her and the same goes for William Dafoe – man is he aging quite well.

People You May Know

I don’t recognize many people in this film, but this was something that caught my eye and a plot that kind of fascinated me. I’ve been intrigued with the “People You May Know” section for quite some time on a number of social networks – Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn. I’m not quite sure how this plot is going to play out, but it’s a film that I’d watch on Netflix for sure, just not in theaters.
