B+ 91% Widows (2018) What it lacks in sense it makes up for with style. Davis, Debicki and Rodriguez are wives-turned-thieves, and they are marvelous to behold.‐ Boston Herald

A- 83% Green Book (2018) This true story mixing comedy and drama is just the film we need for this time of newly stirred racial divisiveness. Mortensen and Ali lift the material to great heights.‐ Boston Herald
