Emma Stone waits her turn

Film Review

The Favourite

Mean and nasty historical drama makes ambition a courtly enterprise

The Favourite is loopy, long-winded and devolves into increasingly misanthropic spirals, but has wonderfully deadpan humor, scabrous assessment of female power dynamics and a well-played lesbian twist.

For the Honor of Grayskull!

“She-Ra and the Princesses of Power” on Netflix

Netflix’s “She-Ra” is a re-imagined, entirely re-energized, top-down revamp of the animated standby. In fact, it may be the first ’80s reboot to eschew easy nostalgia (aimed at parents) for contemporary relevance (aimed at actual kids).

Burning

Slow-to-ignite South Korean thriller requires patience
