Antebellum may not be an all-time horror classic (and perhaps not a horror film, at all), but it takes a lot to really surprise me anymore, so I gotta tip my hat to any movie that manages that. Though the clues are there, I did not see the plot twist coming and am willing to wager most other viewers won’t either. Forgive me for not elaborating further, but the less you know about the film going in, the better.
Hidden Figures is the highly enjoyable, heartwarming and at times humorous biopic from Theodore Melfi. It’s takes us back to 1961, a time of racial segregation and widespread sexism, at the beginning of the space race between the two Cold War superpowers.
