Desperately Seeking Susan (1985) Susan Seidelman
Riotous, quintessentially 80’s and co-starring a young Aidan Quinn, the Madonna starring film is a must see for those looking for something offbeat.
Night Catches Us (2010) Tanya Hamilton
Quiet and meditative, Anthony Mackie shines in this looks at race relations and the double standards implemented.
Belle (2014) Amma Asante
I adore period films it’s films such as Belle that prove why women’s voices should be endlessly cherished in the medium. If this had been a Joe Wright picture it would have made much more noise than it did.
In Between Days (2007) So Yong Kim
Sad in a way that’s honest and raw, in a hard to watch self-reflective manner, In Between Days depicts the would be romances that sting when we’re young and the dreary days spent waiting for something to happen. Watch for So Yong Kim’s latest that just premiered at Sundance Lovesong.
