I Wrote These Things: Week Ending 11/19

Less than usual this week, on account of some time off for the birthday (my 41st, if you're keeping track), but spotlighting some really great movies, and an interesting failure too.

First up, a review of Manchester By the Sea, which is both masterful and restrained.

My review of The Edge of Seventeen, which put me in mind of Easy A - a smarter-than-average teen comedy that will hopefully make its leading lady into a mega-star.

Some thoughts on Rules Don't Apply, which doesn't quite work, but in some fascinating ways.

And, of course, this week's DVD/VOD guide.
