American Animals: A slightly psychological heist-flick based on the events surrounding the real attempted theft of one of the most valuable books in the world. Pretty good film that could provoke discussion about how some young people make decisions as a group that they'd never make on their own. X-ometer 87/100
Won't You Be My Neighbor?: A thoughtful and engaging documentary about the career of children's TV host Fred Rogers. X-ometer 94/100
Hearts Beat Loud: A heartwarming crowd-pleaser. X-ometer 80/100
Hereditary: Who knew that a single click of a child's tongue against the roof of her mouth could send shivers down your spine? This is a gripping horror suspense film with a meh ending. X-ometer 90/100 for all but the last 10 minutes.
We saw Hearts Beat Loud and Hereditary back-to-back. Toni Collette had a supporting role in HBL and starred in Hereditary. We didn't know that going in. It was fun to see her play two utterly different characters.
