“The Photograph” is a story about a famed photographer Christina Eames who unexpectedly dies and leaves letters to her estranged daughter Mae Morton (Issa Rae) and the man she loved, but never married.
After retrieving the letters and instructions from a safe deposit box, Mae finds herself on a journey that leads her to delve into her Mother’s early life and it sets up an unexpected romance between Mae and a star journalist Michael Block (LaKeith Standfield). The story unfolds from there…
You know they say “Love is Complicated” that rings true in “The Photograph”. The story is a back and forth novel unraveling piece by piece. As the pieces come together the story becomes more intriguing and includes a few surprises along the way. The movie has a good cast and will keep you entertained. Opening on Valentine’s Day was a good move for the “The Photograph”.
This is a 3 ½ Star Movie!!
I am a few days late with my commentary regarding the 92nd Academy Awards. I traveled for business this week and could not write until I got back home.
It’s been a couple of years since the Best Picture Winner was a movie I did not see, but I never heard of “Parasite” and I am not aware that it ever was shown at a theater in my area.
5 of the 8 Best Picture Nominees were movies I saw, “1917”, “Ford v Ferrari”, “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood”, “Little Women” and “The Irishmen” (This is on Netflix).
If you have Netflix I highly recommend “The Irishmen”
I did score on a few of the categories:
Brad Pitt – Best Supporting Actor – Once Upon A Time in Hollywood
Toy Story 4 – Best Animated Feature Film
Hair Love – Animated Short (I saw this short animated film as a lead in to The Secret Life of Pets 2)
“Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” scored on Achievement in Production
I am glad “Little Women” did not go home empty handed as it scored on Costume Design
“Ford v Ferrari” scored 2 statues, Sound Editing and Film editing
“1917” made off with 3 Statues, Sound Mixing, Visual Effects and Cinematography
Surprisingly “Bombshell” won for Hair Styling and Makeup
One of the best moments was when Renee Zellweger won the Best Actress Oscar for her role as Judy Garland in “Judy”
She definitely deserved that win!!
That wraps up the 92nd Academy Awards.
I highly recommend “Ford v Ferrari” and “Little Women”
If you like War Movies check out “1917”
If you are a Kid at Heart check out “Toy Story 4”
If you are interested in Judy Garland’s life check out “Judy(2019)”
If you are a Quentin Tarantino fan check out “Once Upon A Time in Hollywood”
I gave all of these movies 4 or 5 Stars!!
See You at the Movies!!
