Movie 1: Being the Ricardos
This film is set in 1952 Hollywood when Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz confront personal and professional challenges that threaten their careers and relationship. It’s rated R for language. Critics didn’t like the actors (even with the A-list!). Pay no attention to the naysayers. It’s beautifully told, acted and directed!
Movie 2: C’mon C’mon
This is an interesting drama about a child and his uncle. It’s about the bond that ultimately molds their relationship. It is revealing and touching at the same time. It’s rated R for language, but nothing offensive. Joaquin Phoenix delivers an excellent performance.
Movie 3: Kurt Vonnegut: Unstuck in Time
This is an unconventional documentary film about an unconventional man that spans three decades of time. He’s the author of Slaughterhouse Five and Breakfast of Champions. It’s an interesting story about a lifetime of creative writing. It’s an intriguing look at an authors life, if nothing else.
