However, audiences were allowed into see a side of Swift that we don’t usually see on social media or her TV appearances. Here’s a musician who…"Sundance 2020: Miss Americana"
The Painter and the Thief documents the friendship between a Norway artist and the man who ended up stealing her artwork.

During the Critics’ Choice Awards weekend, Solzy at the Movies visited Walt Disney Studios, Universal Studios, and Warner Brothers Studios for studio tours. To say that my weekend in LA was magical would certainly not be an understatement. Walking along the hallways that Walt Disney once roamed is also very inspiring.
