Quotes

Miriam Nessler: He's wearing jeans and a windbreaker, and the hat. The red hat. You know the one. The MAGA hat, in New York City. Two blocks from the public theater and Cooper Union, where Lincoln spoke, and Larry Kramer! That's like me going to Nebraska wearing a yarmulke waving a rainbow flag while reading a book!

life amid COVID isolation

Long since done with the Austin Powers and Meet the Parents franchises, Jay Roach has spent the past twelve years directing political-themed movies: "Recount" (about the 2000 election), "Game Change" (about the 2008 election), "The Campaign" (depicting a heated campaign for a congressional seat), "Trumbo" (about the blacklisting of Dalton Trumbo), "All the Way" (about Lyndon Johnson's efforts to pass the Civil Rights Act) and "Bombshell" (about the women at Fox News who exposed Roger Ailes as a sexual predator). Now he gives us "Coastal Elites", in which five people give monologues describing their displeasure with the Trump presidency and the coronavirus.

Opinions of this movie will almost certainly be split along ideological lines. Personally I found Sarah Paulson's character's monologue the most impressive. The movie isn't any sort of masterpiece, but I enjoyed it.
