Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life Poster

Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life

Review by Susan Wloszczyna

This gently humorous if lightweight diversion capitalizes on the pleasantly restrained performances by its teens-and-under cast and only occasionally trips over itself by stating the obvious.

Blue Jay Poster

Blue Jay

Review by Brian Tallerico

Blue Jay is a gentle, genuine trip down memory lane that features one of our best actresses in the kind of role she doesn't get to play that often.
