    Would have given it a 4.5/5 but it didn't include "The Story of Tonight" and the lyric "Let's have another round tonight" from Hamilton so I guess 4/5 is fair.

    This is a very powerful film about a young woman, Shimu, who works in a factory in Bangladesh, and the struggles she goes through just to start a union. She meets opposition from her bosses, her coworkers, and her husband. Shimu is a wonderful character who I admire very much. Her perseverance is inspiring. This film is a great cultural experience, as it doesn't just cover Shimu's economic struggles, but her religious and romantic ones as well. It's currently free on Prime, so give it a try!

    Toward the end when he had a shaved head, Benedict Cumberbatch was giving me Ralph Fiennes vibes. I'm not an expert on his work, but this felt like a different and good role for him. Usually he seems pretty intense. Grenville Wynne, at least as a character, was more restrained. Overall, a good film.

    If you go into this expecting a deep sci-fi film, you will be disappointed. If you go into this expecting it to be a kind of social experiment about human nature, you will like it more. Although I don't think it says anything new or profound about humanity, I did enjoy the story and look of the film. The acting was solid, with Fionn Whitehead probably being the standout as a real creepy jerk. Last thought: this film takes placeโ€ฆ

    Not quite what I expected. This is a coming of age/high school romance film that doesn't rely on too many tropes or or clichรฉs. At some points, you kind of forget it's a high school film. I would have liked to see more development of the characters, especially Aster. I didn't really understand why either character was pining for her. Otherwise, it's pretty good and rather unique. I didn't feel like I was watching the same old story for the umpteenth time.
