Ed Helms, Patti Harrison talk Together Together

Ed Helms and Patti Harrison spoke with Solzy at the Movies about their new film, Together Together, opening this weekend in theaters. One thing I love about the film is that it is a game-changer for transgender representation. I said as much in my review during Sundance and then some. Besides this, the film is led by the strength of Helms and Harrison in bringing about a new charming comedy. In addition to this film,…

Sundance 2019: Corporate Animals

Corporate Animals finds a way to hysterically comment on workplace situations during a team-building exercise that just happens to go wrong. The film sucks us in with a commercial for the Incredible Edible Cutlery Company.  The company’s mission is to rid the planet of disposable plastic cutlery.  While it’s not a bad idea in theory, it’s easier said than done.  Run by CEO Lucy Vanderton (Demi Moore), she’s hoping that a corporate retreat in the New Mexico desert…

John Curran, directing from a screenplay written by Taylor Allen and Andrew Logan, takes us back to yet another cursed moment for the Kennedy family.  It’s a sad moment for…
