Character actor Michael Shannon has been nominated for his second Oscar for his role in the 2016 thriller Nocturnal Animals. "No Small Parts" takes a look at some of the other characters he's played in the past.
This was perhaps the only worthwhile family film released this summer. The kids were natural and real (no 14-year-olds trying to play 8-year-olds, etc). I especially enjoyed the interaction between the brothers Danny and Ben (played expertly by Tyler Dylan Smith and Colton Shires). It reminded me of the way I interacted with my own brother at that age (my own brother was not as devious as Ben, though). This movie IS NOT a sequel to the awful "Bike Squad" movie from a few years ago. I found the story to be realistic (kids trying to save a public park) and smartly written (not the smart-kids-dumb-adults formula) with very little filler material. Kids should enjoy this and adults can watch without cringing.
