Brooklyn, Spotlight, Grandma and Thanksgiving Films

The Four Essentials For November 20th, 2015

1) “Brooklyn” is sweet and smart. See it.
2) Too many films, including, “Spotlight,” are visually flat.
3) Time to catch up on the films of 2015 you might’ve missed. Start with “Grandma” starring Lily Tomlin.
4) Kick off the Holiday Season with you favorite Thanksgiving film. Steve’s is “Planes, Trains and Automobiles.” Robert’s is “Pieces of April,” starring Katie Holmes.
