This week’s film is the terrific documentary from Questlove called Summer of Soul (…Or When the Revolution Could Not Be Televised) (Searchlight Pictures, 2021). I watched this excellent film on my computer at this year’s virtual Sundance Film Festival, so it was an extra treat to get to experience it on the big screen.
As mentioned in my March 15, 2021 podcast, I’ve started a new “Movie of the Week” feature. I’ll be recommending a favorite movie with the hopes that it will be a film that you’ll enjoy, too. I’d love to chat online about each week’s film on my Instagram and Twitter feeds if you’re so inclined.
This week’s movie is the newly-crowed Oscar winner for Best Picture, Nomadland (Searchlight Pictures, 2020). I loved this film when I got to see it a few weeks ago and it was my top pic for the Best Picture Oscar, too.
