This week in Film — THE REPORT, FROZEN 2, and WAVES

Timing is everything, and as the 2019 Impeachment Hearings drag on, the release of the new political thriller, The Report seems as perfectly timed as anything. Or maybe not. Maybe audiences will seek solace in the multiplex rather than complement. A shame since The Report is two-thirds of a good movie.

But the movie that will have no difficulty drumming up box-office this weekend is Frozen 2, a successful sequel to a much beloved movie. The music soars, the animation is realistic and refined, and the movie’s underlying themes offer plenty to viewers of every age.

And one more, an interview with writer/director/editor Trey Edward Shults on his latest film: Waves, one of the year’s best. The end of the year starts here.
