Different Ways to Deal with Tragedy


What to Watch in the Theater:
A Monster Calls (PG13) is now in theaters. This story shows a boy dealing with his mother’s illness through art and fantasy. The emotions come through, with the help of the acting and artistry, but there was a slight disconnect to the story.
Our rating: 3.83 out of 5


Manchester by the Sea (R) is now in theaters. This movie about a man dealing with more tragedy than any one person should have to bear, is too long and has nothing to offer in terms of entertainment of enlightenment.
Our rating: 1.5 out of 5

What to Watch at Home:
Blackhat (R) This story about a computer criminal redeeming himself is an interesting combination of politics, high tech, world travel and relationships.
Our rating: 4 out of 5

Our Kind of Traitor (R) This British film draws together an interesting cast, in a story about everyday people drawn into a connection with a Russian mobster.
Our rating: 4 out of 5
