"The Broken Hearts Gallery" is sticking to its guns and will be hitting theaters - not streaming - when it is released on September 11th. Because of that, this Selena Gomez-produced romantic-comedy is really one of the first comedic films aimed at this audience to hit the big-screen all year...and despite thinking that it was a contrived, mostly unfunny mess of a movie...I have a feeling that the target-aged audience might strongly disagree with my assessment.
Wait...haven't we seen this before? It's deja vu all over again in "Palm Springs," but that's sort of the point in this bizarre-yet-compelling "Groundhog's Day"-style rom-com.
It's another light drama set in the world of music, but "The High Note" doesn't do much to add to a genre that has been totally played out.
France's entry into this year's Academy Awards for Best International Feature Film, "Portrait of a Lady on Fire" burns with desire, sparked by two stunningly raw performances.
It sadly affects us all. An ordinary couple faces a life-changing cancer diagnosis in the new drama, "Ordinary Love." And while the story of Tom (Liam Neeson) and Joan (Lesley Manville) is perfectly relatable to anyone of the 2 million Americans who are diagnosed with cancer each year - or to the millions more who have or know someone who has been diagnosed or lost to cancer in their lifetimes - this movie finds power in the mundane, ordinary but meaningful moments that it focuses on.
We've seen numerous adaptations of the classic Louisa May Alcott novel on the small and big screens, but remixed and led by director Greta Gerwig, this version of "Little Women" soars to new heights.
Featuring stunning performances and in the hands of a confident master craftsman, sometimes all you need is a good story, some good actors and a good director to make something great.
Writer/Director Noah Baumbach has made a living making unique, personal films. With "Marriage Story," he captures the rawness of love, family and friendship lost like few others have been able to do. He examines with authenticity what a family looks like in the days and years that follow "Happily Ever After."
What would a world without The Beatles look like? The new romantic comedy "Yesterday" answers this question for us, with mixed results.
New on Netflix this weekend is the romantic-comedy, "Always Be My Maybe," a fairly average entry into the genre elevated to "must-see" status because of a hilarious extended cameo...and an original song that is my current vote for Best Song of 2019.
