Too little about the film feels like real life and who wants a fantasy film that’s such a relentless downer?

Run Time: 1:29
U.S. Release Date: 2020-08-28
MPAA Rating: "R" (Profanity, Violence, Drugs)
Genre: Comedy
Director: Ninian Doff
Cast: Lewis Gribben, Rian Gordon, Viraj Juneja, Samuel Bottomley, Jonathan Aris, Eddie Izzard, Georgie Glen

Doff announces himself as a talent to be reckoned with and his feature debut seems destined for admission into the cult classic hall of fame.

By taking a different road, Iannucci has provided something that captures the essence of "David Copperfield" without being constrained by every detail.

The sentimentality and mawkishness that undermine many “heartbreaking” YA romances is kept at bay.

Run Time: 1:39
U.S. Home Release Date: 2020-08-25
MPAA Rating: "R" (Sexual Content, Nudity, Profanity, Drugs)
Genre: Thriller
Director: Giuseppe Capotondi
Cast: Claes Bang, Elizabeth Debicki, Donald Sutherland, Mick Jagger

The final 30 minutes of this would-be Hitchcockian caper film prove unable to deliver on the promise of the early acts.

Run Time: 1:46
U.S. Release Date: 2020-07-03
MPAA Rating: "PG"
Genre: Drama/Comedy
Director: Hirokazu Kore-eda
Cast: Catherine Deneuve, Juliette Binoche, Ethan Hawke, Clementine Grenier, Manon Clavel

"The Truth" is layered and offers a treat for those who savor acting on the highest level, but it is a step down from Kore-eda's best films.

Run Time: 1:32
U.S. Release Date: 2020-06-19
MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Profanity)
Genre: Thriller
Director: Patrick Vollrath
Cast: Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Carlo Kitzlinger, Aylin Tezel, Omid Memar, Paul Wollin, Murathan Muslu

Not a bad high-concept thriller but, as is often the case with movies hampered by undercooked storylines, something better could have resulted from the same basic plot points.

Everything emphasizes the Tall Tale aspects, from the electric, trippy cinematography to the larger-than-life performances of the lead actors.

Run Time: 1:30
U.S. Release Date: 2020-05-08
MPAA Rating: "NR" (Sexual Content)
Genre: Drama
Director: Lara Jean Gallagher
Cast: Otmara Marrero, Sydney Sweeney, Sonya Walger, Will Brittain

The way in which it is presented by first-time feature director Lara Jean Gallagher is slow, awkward, and pretentious.

Run Time: 2:04
U.S. Home Release Date: 2020-06-02
MPAA Rating: "NR" (Violence)
Genre: Adventure
Director: Richard Gray
Cast: Angus Macfadyen, Anna Hutchinson, Zach McGowan, Gabriel Bateman, Talitha Bateman, Brandon Lessard, Patrick Fugit

Is too long by at least a half-hour for the surprisingly slight tale it has to tell.
