    SEE HOW THEY RUN is a decently fun addition to the murder-mystery genre. Saorise Ronan and Sam Rockwell play the Constable and Inspector in this very Agatha Christie-esque whodunnit.

    NOMADLAND is another achingly beautiful film from director Chloé Zhao. She is always able to capture such beauty and honesty in her films and that is expertly displayed here. A portrait into the lives of a type of person that is rarely depicted on screen. Those with a wandering spirit. Those that want to live their lives in their own way. Those that don’t want to be tied down in one place. Frances McDormand is absolutely spellbinding as the lead…
