The Lovers is a mildly amusing, not-quite-standard romantic dramedy, featuring solid performances by Tracy Letts and Debra Winger in the lead roles. I didn't love it, but if you really want to see a movie, this will suffice for entertainment. X-ometer rating 83/100
Cynthia Nixon stars as Emily Dickinson in a A Quiet Passion, a film that explores the eccentricities and preoccupations behind the poet's genius and suffering. Lot's of poetry and a great performance by Nixon. 88/100
Wonder Woman is not a typical selection for us, but there's a dearth of good films out there, so we gave it a shot. If you like superheros and comics, this would be a great film for you to see, but for me it only reached 85/100, largely earned with 3-D and special effects in the last 30-40 minutes of the film.
Finally, there's Norman, starring Richard Gere. Most of the film group enjoyed this one more than I did, and I still can't figure out why I didn't like it more than I did. Psychological complexity, politics, Judaism and more universal themes are all part of this joint Israeli-American production. Gere, Steve Buscemi and Leor Ashkenzi turned out nuanced performances, but the whole package just didn't click for me. I found the film group discussion more interesting than the film itself, but don't let my disappointment stop you from seeing it. In our group of 16 people, 12 liked it a lot. X-ometer rating 78/100
