Although it takes a considerable amount of time to find its own unique voice and roar to vibrant, earth shaking, soul rending life, by the time it all wraps up Ava DuVernay’s epic miniseries When They See Us delivers some of the filmmaker’s most potent, unforgettable, and best work to date.
Always Be My Maybe is the best case scenario for a predictable romantic comedy where any savvy viewer will know every single thing that will happen from the second the movie starts.
