    Review: Roar, a celebration of women

    Roar is an 8 part anthology series. Each story is about a woman and a pointed women’s issue. The list of women in front of and behind the camera is compelling and should convince you to take a look at the series.

    Review: The Little Hours

    I need to say right off the mark that The Little Hours won’t appeal to everyone. If you are the kind of person whose favorite movie is The Princess Bride and reruns of Monte Python are your go-to late night fare, then The Little Hours is for you.
