Solo: A Star Wars Story
Like Han Solo himself, Solo is rough around the edges. Under the grime, though, is a fun romp through space that's more lighthearted than you might expect from Star Wars. Read my full review.

The star-studded cast of Book Club (Diane Keaton, Jane Fonda, Candice Bergen and Mary Steenburgen) is the key to keeping it afloat. The Associated Press says, "Book Club has a script that's often so heavy on the corn... But then, darn it, suddenly it makes you tearful, with an unexpectedly genuine moment, or laugh out loud."
Rolling Stone says, "Rachel Weisz and Rachel McAdams brilliantly enact this tale of forbidden same-sex attraction in London's Orthodox Jewish community. No one who follows the groundbreaking trail that the movie blazes is going to shut up about it."
The Los Angeles Times says, "It's one of the more viscerally accurate portraits of parenthood, and specifically motherhood, that the movies have recently given us."
