The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks
Allison Rose | Jun 05, 2017
Rose Byrne is terrific as Skloot, a somewhat naïve freelance writer determined to get the Lacks family to trust her enough to tell their story. However, the stand out is Winfrey herself as the emotionally, mentally and physically ill Deborah.

Lionsgate seems to put their all into their movies and the 4k UHD disc shows how much they care about the viewer's experiences. What struck me most is just how impressive the colors and details actually appear in comparison to Snitch’s 1080p HD counterpart, which was still a high quality.

Sigourney Weaver is masterful as the conceited and somewhat maniacal doctor. Her delivery is methodical and deliberate, which gives the audience the feel for what the good doctor was like before she lost her license and was incarcerated.

Wonder Woman opens the door for exciting new adventures from a balanced, powerful hero that will, hopefully, continue to receive the consideration and storylines offered to counterparts outside of ensemble vehicles. And, the invisible jet! The invisible jet, too!
The Blackcoat's Daughter
The mostly young cast does a superb job of creating Perkin’s vision. While his dialogue is simplistic, the silences say just as much, if not more. Roberts’ subtle depiction of a mental patient is a sharp contrast to Shipka’s more overtly possessed performance.
It is a shame that we finally get to see “The Wolverine” as he was intended to be, but struggling with his powers since his time has finally come...it would have been nice to see one more film with Hugh Jackman in his full glory as Wolverine (and an R rating) before getting to this story.
