"Drown" is the award-winning film starring Matt Levett as Len Smithy, a championship lifeguard in Australia, who is struggling with his feelings for Phil, a new lifeguard at the club.
The character of Len is over-written. He is a homophobic gay man who has such self-hatred that his out of control anger and bullying do not seem to ever let-up.

1 hr. 33 min.

The Gift

In this psychological mystery drama, Jason Bateman (Simon) and Rebecca Hall (Robyn) star as a young married couple who have a chance meeting with a man from Simon's past, who takes their lives in an unexpected direction.
Other critics are much more impressed with the what they call "twists and turns."
The twists were not really twists.

Maybe it's best if you do NOT watch the trailer (link below) first. Way too much is revealed.

Rated R
1 hr. 48 min.

Ricki and the Flash

Once again Meryl Streep proves she can do anything!
Ricki (Streep) is an aging rocker, who after choosing career over family, comes back after several years to support her daughter through a devastating break-up.
The screenplay, written by Diablo Cody, is poorly written. The story has underdeveloped situations and characters, and the adult daughter was seriously "over directed."
Streep elevates any movie she is in...thus the third ☆.

Rated PG-13
1 hr. 42 min.

The talented Paul Rudd stars in this enjoyable Marvel movie as Scott Lang (Ant-Man), an ex-con father trying to live a crime free life.

If you want a light and fun superhero movie. This one is for you and the kids.
Less exciting than most Marvel superhero movies.

It is tough to see how Ant-Man will fit-in with the Avengers on film.

Rated PG-13
1 hr. 55 min.
