THE MAN WHO INVENTED CHRISTMAS

Taken from a book by Les Standiford, the Mazur Kaplan company, along with several other producers, brought this delightful film to life. Directed by Bharat Nalluri, from a screenplay by Susan Coyne, this movie starring Christopher Plummer and Dan Stevens, will appeal to young people and old people, alike.

THREE BILLBOARDS

With perfectly-timed acerbic barbs laced with obscenities, sharply clever and achingly truthful dialogue, applaudable and cringe-worthy violence, and extraordinary acting by Frances McDormand, Woody Harrelson and Sam Rockwell, THREE BILLBOARDS OUTSIDE EBBING, MISSOURI is sure to be a classic cult film.

IS THAT A GUN IN YOUR POCKET?

When a young boy brings a loaded gun to school, his mother reacts by galvanizing the women in town to wage a "sex strike" until the men get rid of their firearms.

MIAMI FILM FEST

Carrie Pilby and Chronically Metropolitan touched on blatant flaws in others, compromise in perceptions, awareness of own limitations, and willingness to accept life, as it is, and go on with inner strength. Both films had well-known stars, were wonderfully acted, and had engaging characters.

Hidden beneath the paper is a scratched-out drawing of “IT” – The Bye Bye Man. With the power of this evil now released, the three friends must combat extreme paranoia and vivid hallucinations (or realities?)
