'Ammonite' review: Kate Winslet and Saoirse Ronan star in a period love story

(CNN) "Ammonite" joins a long list of forbidden love stories, yielding a movie presented in washed-out tones, which shines principally thanks to Kate Winslet and Saoirse Ronan.The result is a slow-moving, somewhat predictable but finally effective period romance that primarily serves as an old-fashioned testament to star power.Set in the 1840s, the film features Winslet as Mary Anning, an accomplished fossil hunter who plies her trade along the English coastline, selling her discoveries to tourists.The performances, however, elevate the material, as Winslet and Ronan each convey grappling with different kinds of trauma without speaking about what ails them.When they finally do connect -- after what feels like a too-long buildup -- those scenes are raw and passionate. read more...

'9 to 5' turns 40: The feel-good 1980 comedy covers a depressing reality even in 2020

Though it's a timeless comedy, its themes of sexual harassment, misogyny and gender discrimination still resonate with us four decades later (2019's more depressing film, "The Assistant," portrays similar verbal abuse and sexism in the workplace).This movie is filled with laughs as the trio have elaborate fantasies about killing their boss.Lucky for Violet, the film concludes with her being promoted to Hart's position, as he is forced to relocate to Brazil.Viewers feel discomfort and empathy as kind-hearted Doralee finally resorts to an aggressive tone of voice (and even a mention of her handgun) in order to stop her boss' sexual advances.We should aspire to be as strong-willed as Parton's character, who refuses to let anyone take advantage of her kindness. read more...
