City of Angels – Arrows to Athens
Speaking of the contradicting circumstances of a girl and boy it’s melody and the singer’s amazing voice elevate it into something ”angelic”.
Inspired by the television series of the same name this action comedy film follows Lt. Mitch Buchannon and his team of lifeguards who must take down a drug lord in an effort to save their beach. The acting was brilliant and Dwayne Johnson’s lines and mannerisms sent me on the floor laughing.
Woman Walks Ahead (2017)
This biographical drama film is based on the life of portrait painter Caroline Weldon who, in 1890’s, traveled from Brooklyn to Dakota to paint the portrait of Sitting Bull and became entangled with the Lakota peoples’ struggle over the rights to their land. It was such an educational film about the difficulties and racism the Indian people and their ”white” allies faced as well as the Indian views on life, nature and god. (a review is soon to follow)
