    Who We Are Now

    ★★★½

    I’ll leave it to you to see all the the names of these ensemble cast members appearing on-screen. It’s a lot! Apart from that you have a brilliant lead performance by Julianna Nicholson. This is a very well acted film overall and that’s why I feel very good recommending it. We change through the years, usually for the better, we hope for the best. This film shows a cross-section of lives and how they either have changed or are changing and what that means to their lives. rileyonfilm.com/who-we-are-now/

    Eighth Grade

    ★★★★★

    This is a perfect film. With the usual trappings stripped away, this school age coming-of-age film portrays a real young adult female, youtuber,acne and all, in her misadventures growing up. A very rewarding film.

  • Assassination Nation

    Assassination Nation

    ★★★½

    I like the idea of this film. Its execution is a bit too violent and Purge-like. The question of privacy must be addressed in this country!
