There’s no doubt about it: this week’s lineup is very eclectic. We’ve got BOO! A MADEA HALLOWEEN, GIRL ASLEEP, and DENIAL opening this week, while QUEEN OF KATWE, AMERICAN HONEY, and BIRTH OF A NATION all return this week for those who missed out the first time around.
GIRL ASLEEP has been talked about in our office since the very first moment we saw the trailer. It might be unfair to label it as Australia’s answer to Napoleon Dynamite, but if you’re looking to explain to your friends what it’s like it is a good shorthand answer. Filled with amazing characters and moments of pure delight, we assure you that you will not spend one sleepy moment watching it.
