Pieces of a Woman | Film Review

Pieces of a Woman isn’t a film for everyone. It’s raw, intense, and emotionally brutal. It’s artsy and centered around the themes the story conveys. I found it powerful and couldn’t take my eyes off of what I was seeing for a single second. Vanessa Kirby shines as a woman named Martha who is going… Continue reading Pieces of a Woman | Film Review

Harper hasn’t come… Continue reading Happiest Season | Movie Review

Sure, I still had loads of fun watching it, but this was a surprisingly violent, action-packed thrill ride. The premise hinges (ahem) on a single mother named Rachel (Caren Pistorius) taking her… Continue reading Unhinged | Movie Review

If Anything Happens I Love You | Movie Review

If Anything Happens I Love You ripped my heart out of my chest, stomped on it, then replaced it. I don’t want to reveal too much about the story because I feel like it would ruin this twelve minute short film, but the parents of a daughter who died in a tragic manner are engulfed… Continue reading If Anything Happens I Love You | Movie Review
