Read my spoiler-free movie review of  Happiest Season (2020).


Starring Kristen Stewart, Mackenzie Davis, directed and co-written by Clea DuVall; Happiest Season is a new holiday romantic comedy all about wanting your family’s acceptance, being exactly yourself, and trying hard not to ruin Christmas.

Additional key cast includes Michelle Buteau, Aubrey Plaza, Dan Levy and Alison Brie.

Very happy is how I feel to see another Christmas movie trailer this week. Especially so since this looks like quite a good, fun movie, thanks in part to the comedy. And of course I’ll be gladly taking in all the gorgeous lights and decorations.

Jake McDorman, Mary Steenburgen, Clea DuVall, Victor Garber, Sarayu Blue, Ana Gasteyer, Mary Holland, Caroline Harris and Burl Moseley also star.

HORSE GIRL (2020): The Things I Liked…

Knowing at the start that Horse Girl is the story of a single woman losing her grip on reality, as soon as I saw and heard Allision Brie’s sweet and innocent looking character Sarah, one thing became clear right way. ‘Comfortable’ definitely isn’t the word to best describe the viewing experience of director Jeff Baena’s latest drama.

That’s not to say you shouldn’t make time for Baena’s film. For Horse Girl is an intimate and certainly notable depiction of the unfairness and tragedy of mental illness close up. 

Watching Horse Girl means finding yourself at the centre of very awkward situations, as experienced by its vulnerable protagonist. Yet it’s worth it for Brie’s memorable performance. As uncomfortable as I found myself watching Sarah’s life unfold, I knew it was’t anything compared to the experience of those who love her. 

My overall favourite thing about Horse Girl is of course Brie’s performance. Another highlight is the smart editing and the humour at Sarah’s impromptu birthday party of four. A memorable mini festival of harmless discomfort that will put several smiles on your face. 

As for the ending… it’s not my favourite part and I have a question or two. Nonetheless, watch Horse Girl if you’re curious – but especially because Brie is great.

Read my spoiler-free movie review of Horse Girl (2019).


Imagine being socially awkward, fond of arts and crafts, horses, and supernatural crime shows. Then your increasingly lucid dreams start trickling into your waking life.

This is the premise of Horse Girl, a new Jeff Baena directed drama starring Alison Brie, Molly Shannon, John Ortiz, Robin Tunney…

Going mad must be one of the loneliest experiences. I simply want to know what’s really going on with Sarah; especially since it looks like a promising Brie performance.

Is it just me or does the high necked outfit in the above trailer thumbnail remind anyone else of a straight jacket?

Matthew Gray Gubler, Debby Ryan, Paul Reiser, Dylan Gelula, Meredith Hagner, Toby Huss, Angela Trimbur, David Paymer, John Reynolds, Jay Duplass and Dendrie Taylor also star.

Horse Girl Release Dates: January 27th, 2020 (US) / Netflix…
