After a week of 'classics', Jack Nicholson movies and Tom at the Farm (2013, Xavier Dolan) I am more than ready for something much sunnier and upbeat. I even treated myself to some Sherlock at lunch. If the supper party I need to attend tonight finishes early I might make another attempt to see Hidden Figures. What are the chances it will be sold out two weekends in a row? I need a weekend of movies without any violence against women.
Getting back to Xavier Dolan and Tom at the Farm... I preferred Mommy, his film from 2014. Movies where women are called hard-ons, threatened and pulled around by their hair are just too depressing. Still, it was nice to see a woman (Sarah, played by Évelyne Brochu) fight back, grab a knife to defend herself and make it out of that hellish situation alive.
