In-laws, am I right? No one ever wants to deal with the In-laws but Grace (Weaving) really wants to make a good impression! It’ll be especially difficult with the kind of family she’s marrying into… the filthy rich. Fiancé Alex (O’Brien) is a Le Domas whose family is of old money that has come from the producing and selling of board games.
Originally slated for a March 22nd release, ‘Where’d You Go, Bernadette’ is finally here! Good! I can see it again. Read more
I must confess that I have never read the books this film is based on. That being said, I was still looking very forward to seeing this movie. The reason? A documentary about the books and their author, Alvin Schwartz, was released and I watched and reviewed it. I found the subjects of that documentary to be quite fascinating. Afterward, I couldn’t wait to see what the movie had in store for us. I was hoping it would stay especially true to the sketches of the monsters Schwartz’ illustrator, Stephen Gammell, came up with to kickstart his reader’s imaginations. I’m happy to say… they most definitely did.

Another A24 must-see is ‘Midsommar.’ The film was intense, bizarre and uniquely disturbing. An easier way to say it is that the movie was off the charts freaky and stays with you for long after you’ve seen it. The story follows a group of young anthropology students to Sweden on break from school headed straight for, quite frankly, their night or rather, their daymares. That comment will make more sense to you after you’ve seen the film.
