    Very rude to not set this in New Jersey imo

    A Soul Haunted by Painting

    ★★★½

    Very biopic-y in its execution but really interesting for its subject matter of a woman artist in early 20th century China and the juxtaposition of her experience in her home country and her adopted one, France. Great performance by Gong Li in the lead, also.

    Professor Marston and the Wonder Women

    ★★★★½

    A biopic about a man that is actually about two awesome women who, when their powers combine, are basically Actual Wonder Woman. But also really a historical glimpse at polyamory (and bisexuality) and a little BDSM. Great performances, great story, and GREAT 20s-30s professor looks for Rebecca Hall. I have no opinion on its historical accuracy or on early Wonder Woman comics (since I've never read it) but as a straight-up unconventional, feminist, period romance, it totally worked for me.
