A woman returns to her Orthodox Jewish community that shunned her for her attraction to a female childhood friend. Once back, their passions reignite as they explore the boundaries of faith and sexuality.
On the rocky path to sobriety after a life-changing accident, John Callahan discovers the healing power of art, willing his injured hands into drawing hilarious, often controversial cartoons, which bring him a new lease on life.
Paris, summer 1979. Anne is a producer of gay porn at discount. When Loïs, her editor and companion, leaves her, she attempts to reclaim her by turning a film more ambitious with the flamboyant Archibald.
The film is about Marlo, a mother of three including a newborn, who is gifted a night nanny by her brother. Hesitant to the extravagance at first, Marlo comes to form a unique bond with the thoughtful, surprising, and sometimes challenging young nanny named Tully.
Wow, what an amazing story. Easily relatable and identifiable for any parent-how many ways do we divide ourselves to accommodate all those we love? And at what cost? But the film makers flexed some creative muscle to get this story told right. I am astonished by how moved I was when the subtle fairy tale evaporated, and reality came seeping back in to the frame.
Being a parent is tough. It sucks everything we have out of us. But for women, as mothers, that pressure, and the demands upon that corresponding additional generosity, is factored even higher. Charlize Theron is a powerful amplifier for the message and transforms much like she did in Monster. She should prepare an Oscar acceptance speech.
