What Shadows

What Shadows

★★★☆☆    Puzzling:
There is a delicate romanticism to What Shadows that is at odds with its subject matter. An excellent central performance and high production values cannot ever quite overcome some problematic elements.

Of Mice and Men

Of Mice and Men

★★★☆☆ Faithful:

The King’s Speech

✭✭✭✩✩ Solid:
