Migration, Society of the Snow, American Fiction

Movie 1: Migration

This is a delightful, animated adventure about a family of ducks who take their first flight away from “the pond” and fly south to Jamaica for the winter. There is some action, peril and lots of comedy along the way. Not necessarily the most artistic animation, but good family fun.


Movie 2: Society of the Snow

Based on the true story of the 1974 plane crash in the Andes of the Uruguay rugby team, this is a harrowing, gripping and inspiring story of the human will to survive. The cinematography is gorgeous. The fear, drama and claustrophobia are palpable. This film deserves all the accolades it is receiving, and a Best Foreign Film Oscar nomination next month will surely follow. In theatres now, Netflix in January. Spanish with English subtitles.


Movie 3: American Fiction

This is a brilliantly scathing satire about race and gender roles and a very timely commentary on American society. Every scene is pitch perfect, whether emotionally, socially or politically. The acting and writing deserve every award it is and will be nominated for. This movie should not be missed.
