Movie 1: Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe
This is a beautiful, smart and poignant coming of age story about two Mexican teenagers in 1987 El Paso, Texas and the different roads they took in discovering they are gay. Excellent acting and writing, with breakthrough performances by the two young actors. Based on the novel by the same name.
Movie 2: Dumb Money
Based on real life events of ordinary folks getting rich on GameStop stock. Set in 2021 during the pandemic, this movie chronicles how small investors can, and did, outsmart Wall Street. Brilliant acting and just the right amount of tension. Really well done.
Movie 3: A Haunting in Venice
This is Kenneth Branagh’s third Hercule Poirot movie based on Agatha Christie novels. A retired Poirot attends a Halloween seance in Venice. This movie has several twists and turns and is scary in all the right places. Fun to see these actors in different roles, especially Tina Fey. The aerial views of Venice will have you packing your bags!
