Paddington 2 (2017)

I might even go so far as to proclaim Paddington 2 pretty much perfect, but let me indulge in one more marmalade sandwich before I make the decision to say just that.

The Post (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - December 26th, 2017 - Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

Add in the obvious parallels to our current fight to keep a free, unfettered press that’s under assault by a corrupt political machine unlike any the First Amendment has ever faced before, the importance of the messages at the heart of The Post couldn’t be more imperative. Spielberg’s latest might not be his best, but it may be his most essential, those from all corners of the ideological spectrum urged to watch it with an open mind and a clear heart at their earliest opportunity.

Never shying away from the stark, tragic truths always silently lurking in plain sight, there is something universal here that stops the heart right in its tracks, The Florida Project building to a single moment of selfless friendship that is as fantastical as it is breathtaking.

Battle of the Sexes (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 28th, 2017 - Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

Ignorant bullies weaponizing sexism, homophobia and racism deserve to be silenced, and whether they’re on the tennis court, inside corporate boardroom or even heaven forbid in the gosh darn White House, it’s about time we all follow Billie Jean King’s example and do whatever we can to shut them up, hopefully this time for good.

Polina (2016)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 1st, 2017 - Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

The profound beauty of what happens during this last modern dance ballet encapsulates everything Müller and Preljocaj have been building towards flawlessly, ultimately making Polina the type of unexpected marvel that keeps me heading back to the theatre time and time again. I love this movie. More importantly, I cannot wait to see it again.

Band Aid (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 30th, 2017 - Film Festivals Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

[Having] us walk the same mile they do in shoes they themselves are wearing is a therapeutically evocative means to an exceedingly profound end, Band Aid hitting so many right notes any false ones it might inadvertently strike are lost in a symphony of reflective magnificence I could listen to for days on end with no hesitation whatsoever.
