    Eighth Grade

    ★★★½

    This is one of those special movies that rather than feel like a film it just feels like you’re an onlooker in the life of an eighth grader. The performances seem extremely genuine. 
    Movie is about an eight grade girl Kayla who has a week of grad school left as she tries to find her place in life/school that feels right for her. 
    The dynamic between her and her father is one of the many highlights of this film. 
    Great movie!

  • Cassandra's Dream

    Cassandra's Dream

    ★★★

    This is a Woody Allen film that feels the least like one of his films.  Not as many witty lines or chuckles as this one is more dramatic than usual. Ewan McGregor and Colin Farrell star as brothers who are both in need of a financial boost for different reasons, let their uncle convince them to off someone who could ruin his life. 
    I liked this one, especially the stunning Haley Atwell in a supporting role.

    Sicario: Day of the Soldado

    ★★★★½

    I loved the original Sicario so I had hopes that this sequel would be at least comparable. 
    Here Josh Brolin’s character is brought in to head up a mission to pit the Mexican cartels against each other by any means necessary. 
    This was exciting, intense and highly entertaining.  Great cast with the also returning Benicio Del Toro. 
    I was blown away with how much I loved this movie.  
    A must see.

    Berkshire County

    ★★★½

    First time feature for the talented director Audrey Cummings. Not your typical slasher flick. Babysitter in a secluded country home is terrorized by a group of animal-mask wearing people intent on doing them harm. Kind of old school in the cat and mouse style of the film, not just kill after kill that we see all too much of these days. In this case we actually get to care about the lead (an extremely competent Alyssa King).
    Well worth checking out.
