No matter what Kimmy Schmidt does, she can’t seem to escape her past — you know, those 15 years she was held prisoner in a bunker.

She’s frustrated by the reminder of her tragic upbringing, but fans will rejoice in the return of the Reverend (a demented Jon Hamm) via prison phone calls. Meanwhile, Kimmy’s supporting band of narcissists — virtuosos Jane Krakowski, Tituss Burgess and Carol Kane — continue »

Review: My Life as a Courgette

27 April 2017 6:59 AM, PDT | Pure Movies | See recent Pure Movies news »

This is a Pure Movies review for My Life as a Courgette, starring Nick Offerman, Ellen Page, Will Forte and Amy Sedaris, directed by Claude Barras Though colourful and visually popping, children’s animation can be remarkably adept at tugging the heartstrings. It’s guilty of caving to easy manipulation and doe-eyed schmaltziness every now and then, sure, but when it’s smart, it can be devastating. Maybe it’s the bait-and-switch juxtaposition of storybook images and incisive emotional truths that makes it so effective. Maybe it’s the heart-rendering simplicity of their allegories – or maybe, even, it’s that such emotions are simply universal. Whatever the secret is, from My Neighbour Totoro to Toy Story 3, they are almost unparalleled in their ability to give voice to often-inexpressible sentiments. »
