Widows

Widows was another movie we were fortunate to see this year at the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival.  Our screening was at the  Princess of Wales theater, one of our favorites.  This film has a lot of hype and very little thrill.  It’s an okay heist movie.  Even in Ocean’s 11, the professional thieves took […]
