Pick of the Week

Sunlight Jr. (Gravitas) — Laurie Collyer’s film touches on many things: the economy of Southern Florida, living with a disability, the foster care system, not to mention relationships, family, and having faith in other people. To reduce the film’s meaning to any one of these flattens its complexity. But what resonated most with me, and what has been conspicuously absent from other readings of the film, is Collyer’s representation of pro-choice politics. Read Susanna Locascio’s full HTN review.
