A few weeks ago, I contributed to the IndieWire critics survey and discussed how Eva Vives’ All About Nina for the most under-appreciated films of 2018. I’m not going to re-post what I wrote even though it’s a damn shame that Mary Elizabeth Winstead’s name is not a part of the conversation. I will say that even to this day, Winstead’s performance as Nina Geld is one of the best performances of the year. When I first…"Mary Elizabeth Winstead is Awards-Worthy in All About Nina"

Eva Vives: Thank you so much. How are you doing? I’m doing well. I’m enjoying somewhat of a breather between TIFF and the Chicago International Film Festival.

On the other…"Tribeca 2018: All About Nina"
The 2018 Tribeca Film Festival kicks off this week with the world premiere of Love, Gilda at the Beacon Theatre. The festival runs April 18-29, 2018. There’s a lot that I’m looking forward to covering but most importantly, Disobedience is the film that hits home the most as an Orthodox Jewish transgender woman. In the follow up to the Oscar-winning A Fantastic Woman, Sebastián Lelio directs Rachel Weisz, Rachel McAdams, and Alessandro Nivola. As with anyone…"Tribeca 2018: What I’m Looking Forward To"
