Boy Erased

“Conversion Therapy.” It sounds benign, perhaps even welcoming. The truth, as exposed in the articles and memoirs written by Garrard Conley, is far different. The intention of this process, which has been vociferously denounced by nearly e...

Exodus: Gods and Kings

Gift, The

The Great Gatsby is widely recognized as one of the best American novels of the 20th century, although many remember it as a book we were forced to read in high school. Thus far, there have been several attempts to convert the book into a movie (mo...

Loving

As straightforward “based on a true story” movies go, Loving is a strong account of the key factual events that led to the landmark 1967 Supreme Court decision overturning anti-miscegenation laws. Effectively acted and occasionally moving...

Thing, The

The same questions accompany The Thing that accompany any revival of an '80s property, be it Conan the Barbarian, Fright Night, or Footloose (to name only a few of many, many candidates). First and foremost is "Why?" However, while it may seem unne...
