The series is so well done and the performances are great. Ava DuVernay tells the story in such a powerful and emotional way. I watched the Ken Burns documentary shortly after it came out but this series is a whole different beast. It can be heartbreaking at times but needed be told with a human and emotional element, not just fact based. I lost it during the last episode.
Booksmart might be the best movie I've seen this year. Hard to believe it was Olivia Wilde's directorial debut, what a great job she did. There aren't any huge names in the movie but the entire cast did A+ work. And the 2 leads were just phenomenal in this. Have to think their stocks are on the rise. Kaitlyn Dever is one of the stars who some on this site might remember as Loretta McCready from Justified. Great to see her getting in some big name movies. Definitely recommend this one.
