Sean Means Reviews Movies for October 25th, 2018

ARTSIES:

Silencio – Not Screened

In order to save her son’s life, Ana must find a powerful stone. Her grandfather originally discovered it in the Zone of Silence, the Bermuda Triangle of Mexico. Throughout her desperate search, Ana stumbles upon family secrets and enemies who believe the stone’s power is worth killing for.

Director: Lorena Villarreal

Starring: Melina Matthews, Rupert Graves, John Noble, Michel Chauvet

The Happy Prince – 2 STARS

The last days of Oscar Wilde — and the ghosts that haunted them — are vividly evoked in Rupert Everett’s directorial debut. Everett gives a career defining performance as Wilde, physically and emotionally embodying the literary genius as he lives out his last days in exile in Europe. His body ailing and heavy, his mind spinning, he survives by falling back on the flamboyant irony and brilliant wit that defined him.

Director: Rupert Everett

Starring: Rupert Everett, Colin Firth, Colin Morgan

All About Nina – 3 STARS

Just as Nina Geld’s (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) brilliant and angry stand-up kicks her career into high gear, her romantic life gets complicated, forcing her to reckon with what it means to be creative, authentic, and a woman in today’s culture.

Director: Eva Vives

Starring: Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Common, Chace Crawford

FARTSIES:

Captain Glass must now assemble an elite group of Navy SEALs to rescue the kidnapped Russian president and sneak through enemy waters to stop WWIII.

Director: Donovan Marsh

The Oath – Not Screened

A controversial White House policy turns family member against family member in THE OATH, a savagely funny dark comedy about surviving life and Thanksgiving in the age of political tribalism. When Chris (Ike Barinholtz), a high-strung 24-hour progressive news junkie, and his more levelheaded wife Kai (Tiffany Haddish) learn that citizens are being asked to sign a loyalty oath to the President, their reaction is disbelief, followed by idealistic refusal.

Director: Ike Barinholtz

Starring: Ike Barinholtz, Tiffany Haddish, John Cho, Carrie Brownstein

Johnny English Strikes Again – 2 1/2 Stars
