Before Midnight, like its predecessors, is a masterpiece, and I have a feeling I’ll be holding it near and dear to my heart for the rest of my life.

What Maisie Knew (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 24th, 2013 - Film Festivals Movie Reviews

A modern day adaptation of the Henry James novel, What Maisie Knew is an emotionally-charged, delicately authentic knockout tale of a child learning to circumnavigate an adult world while maintaining her wide-eyed exuberance about life and its potential in the process.

Frances Ha (2013)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 23rd, 2013 - Film Festivals Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

It’s ebullient and joyous but still laced without the proper amount of pain and pathos, everything working in incandescent tandem with its various pieces in order to make the movie come alive to its own free-flowing beat. Make no mistake, Frances Ha is a stunning achievement, an exercise in pure cinema that’s as rare as it is spectacular.

Beasts of the Southern Wild (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - July 4th, 2012 - Film Festivals Movie Reviews

There is no closure to Beasts of the Southern Wild, nothing to hold on to that I felt was satisfying. I love the fire and the passion it must have taken for Zeitlin and Alibar to bring the film to life, but that wasn’t enough as far as I was concerned.

Banks is incredible, her performance the anchor that holds People Like Us together.

Grassroots (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 22nd, 2012 - Film Festivals Movie Reviews

Grassroots shows that, win or lose, hope still exists, and that the tiniest of voices can still be heard if they have the guts to stand before a microphone and have the courage to make their opinions public.

True Wolf (2012)

I enjoyed True Wolf, got wrapped up in Koani and her family’s story in a way I hadn’t anticipated before watching.

Lola Versus (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 15th, 2012 - Film Festivals Movie Reviews

Lola Versus comes up frustratingly short, making my recommending it as a worthwhile option for a night out at the local cinema a virtual impossibility.
