  • Tomorrow Ever After

    My mother told me that one of her cousins has a cameo role in an Indie film called “Tomorrow Ever After.” His name is Dan Rovner, and he plays a security guard, who is just a background character. Unfortunately, I… Read More ›

  • The Dinner

    Like “Manchester by the Sea,” “The Dinner” mixes together the past and the present in order to explain the story; and like “Norman,” it also features a charming performance from Richard Gere. But unlike those two, “The Dinner” is overdosed… Read More ›
