“La La Land” (PG-13) A-
“Lion” (PG-13) B+

I also wrote about these movies this week:

We’re still making improvements to the site, and probably will be for a while. If any of you are well-versed in WordPress and want to help me find the right plug-ins and other tools that I need, feel free to drop me a line.

In the meantime, happy holidays!
