If you enjoy seeing movies and love an opportunity to discuss the movies with other movie enthusiasts, then you should consider joining Critics Corner. The next meeting will be via Zoom on Friday, September 25th, at 7:00PM. We will discuss and rate the following:
JOKER – (Available on pay channels) Joker centers around the iconic arch nemesis and is an original, standalone fictional story not seen before on the big screen. Director and writer Todd Phillips' exploration of Arthur Fleck, who is indelibly portrayed by Joaquin Phoenix, is of a man struggling to find his way in Gotham's fractured society. A clown-for-hire by day, he aspires to be a stand-up comic at night...but finds the joke always seems to be on him. Caught in a cyclical existence between apathy and cruelty, Arthur makes one bad decision that brings about a chain reaction of escalating events in this gritty character study. Director: Todd Phillips, Stars: Joaquin Phoenix, Robert De Niro, Zazie Beetz
WONDER – (Available on Pay channels) Based on the New York Times bestseller, WONDER tells the inspiring and heartwarming story of August Pullman. Born with facial differences that, up until now, have prevented him from going to a mainstream school, Auggie becomes the most unlikely of heroes when he enters the local fifth grade. As his family, his new classmates, and the larger community all struggle to find their compassion and acceptance, Auggie's extraordinary journey will unite them all and prove you can't blend in when you were born to stand out. Director: Stephen Chbosky, Stars: Julia Roberts, Owen Wilson, Jacob Tremblay, Izabela Vidovic
