This week on End Credits, we’re going to fire up the Netflix machine and press play on a movie that might have missed our attention if the movie theatres were still open. This week, we’re going to get into the teen drama (and COVID-free) All the Bright Places, and we’re going to do a run down of where all your most-anticipated movies have moved on the release calendar.
This Wednesday, April 8, at 2 pm, Adam A. Donaldson and Candice Lepage will discuss:
Release Date Moves. It was going to be a beautiful year at the movies, but then COVID-19 happened and nobody was going to the cinema for a while. How do you run a global movie market when no one is supposed to leave their homes for the time being? You back load the second half of the year with all the anticipated blockbusters! We’ll talk about the changes, and where you can find your favourite upcoming films.
REVIEW: All the Bright Places (2020). She’s a normally bright teenage girl racked with grief and survivor’s guilt from the death of her sister; he’s a teenage boy trying to find the bright side as he battles some complex mental health issues of his own. Some how, they manage to fall in love as they try to overcome their specific struggles, and how could they not in the beautifully captured vistas of [checks notes] Indiana! Still, is this movie, and the personal struggles and small victories it chronicles, a nice break from our pandemic times?
End Credits is on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca Wednesday at 2 pm.
