We have movies! There’s not much this week, which is fine, because we’re all trying to binge Oscar noms anyway.
Padman is a biopic about activist Arunachalam Muruganantham, whose mission was to provide sanitary napkin’s to poor women of rural areas. Awesome. I’m there.
Maze Runner: The Death Cure is the third, and thankfully final, movie of the teen franchise.
A Ciambra follows a young Romani boy who idolizes his older brother, who also happens to be a thief.
The Insult is a drama about an “insult blown out of porportion,” which brings a Lebanese Christian and a Palestinian refugee to court.
Please Stand By stars Dakota Fanning, Toni Collette, and Alice Eve. Fanning is an autistic woman who runs away so she can enter her Star Trek fanfic in a contest. (One assumes it has a happier ending than Black Mirror.)
American Folk is a “pleasing” indie about two strangers who travel across the country by automobile when 9/11 grounds their plane.
