I went into this film wanting to like it after hearing positive reactions from friends in the film industry. However, I’m falling somewhere in the…"Wes Schlagenhauf Is Dying – Tribeca 2022"

The Morning Show is the definitive television drama series for the #MeToo era and the Apple TV+ series could not be more timelier with its commentary. We’re over two years into the start of the #MeToo movement. While some series have offered commentary in terms of references, The Morning Show goes big. It isn’t just that the series is ripped out of the headlines but Mitch Kessler (Steve Carell) could easily be a stand-in for…"The Morning Show: A TV Drama for the #MeToo Era"
