Raw Boss (This Week’s Movies)


Jessica Chastain: The Zookeeper’s Wife (courtesy Anne Marie Fox/Focus Features)

Links to my reviews published this week in the Herald and Seattle Weekly.

Raw. “At its best, Raw gets past its artiness and touches on the truly uncanny.”

The Zookeeper’s Wife. “Chastain does something admirable here: She doesn’t play Antonina as some kind of ahead-of-her-time superhero, but as an unassuming woman whose steady moral center allows her to persevere in the face of danger.”

The Boss Baby. “The Boss Baby doesn’t summon up the magic of Disney or Pixar at their best, but then it doesn’t aim for that. This movie wants to be breezy and silly, and it succeeds on both counts.”
