From Jan Lisa Huttner (Editor-in-Chief of FF2 Media)
Eight films either written &/or directed by women filmmakers opened in Manhattan theatres this week:
- Christopher Robin
- The Darkest Minds
- Never Goin’ Back
- Nico, 1988
- Night Comes On
- The Miseducation of Cameron Post
- The Spy Who Dumped Me
All eight of these films are narrative features (no docs), and of these eight, so far I have only been able to see four: The Darkest Minds, Never Goin’ Back, Milla, and the Miseducation of Cameron Post.
I liked all of them, but didn’t love any of them, so forced to pick (because of my own rules), I am selecting Valerie Massadian’s Milla as my Top Pick for August 3, 2018 (drumroll please!).
