  • Downton Abbey

    Downton Abbey

    ★★★

    The movie rides with its characters, its music, and, most of all, its beautiful house.  All of these are as fine as ever, actually finer on the larger screen.  

    The plot? Ridiculous, but so was the TV show and I couldn’t miss an episode.

    Eighth Grade

    ★★★★½

    I lived 8th grade three times, once as a kid and once each as the father of a daughter and son. This movie is in turn devastating and optimistic, and the father in me just wanted to hold Kayla and not let go, even as I knew this would not work.  

    All parents of 10 year olds should be required to watch this film, and all middle school teachers/counselors/officials.
