    Love, Scott

    ★★

    Inspiring story and important messages but strange artistic and directorial choices bring it down. I couldn’t tell if the fragmented and non linear timeline was on purpose or not - but if so, why divide the film into three parts. The divisions seemed mostly arbitrary and didn’t serve to tell the story.

    ★★★★

    A look into the history of the mercury 13 female astronaut program and its cancellation through archival material and interviews with surviving members. Fascinating.

    Pumpkin Movie

    ★★★★★

    Two women share a Skype date while carving Halloween pumpkins and sharing stories of everyday mundane sexism. A real and powerful example of living life while female.

    Birth of a Family

    ★★★★★

    Four children, siblings all removed from their mother in the sixties scoop in Canada, unite for the first time ever for a week in Banff. Moving exploration of the importance of family and the legacies of racist policies in Canada.
