Welcome to Pedro-World. The great director, Pedro Almodovar updates MILDRED PIERCE with unwed mothers, rape, lesbian sex, crib mortality, transvestites & loads of the color red. Most importantly, Joan Crawford had become Penelope Cruz. What a movie star! Soon on Netflix, PARALLEL MOTHERS.
Thanksgiving morphs into truth or dare when a nicely weird family gathers in daughter’s barely furnished Manhattan apartment, a creepy downtown version of the scary uptown one in Rosemary’s Baby (1968). Written and directed by Stephen Karam, who adapts his own Tony-winning 2016 Broadway play. A fascinating & smart movie, THE HUMANS.
Guess who’s coming to Christmas dinner at the Windsors? Poor little rich girl, Lady Diana Spencer, and she has a dreadful time! Kristen Stewart uncanny as Princess Di, in SPENCER.
