The way the film is put together makes it work as a universal tale of discovering meaning in caring for one’s parents while navigating complicated family relationships. However, it revolves around the character Mona, who is happy to be the only one in the group which is not Indian and hails from an immigrant family. She responds in English with “Happy Christmas” when a visitor says to her in Punjabi, “God is Truth,” and she gives the middle finger to aunts who discover her smoking. Moreover, she is having a relationship with a married guy.

Cast:Glen Powell
Zachary Levi
Jack Black

Apollo 10 1/2, narrated by Jack Black, is a retro tale presented with commendable detail and inventiveness. Black portrays a mature Stan who reflects on his youth with a combination of nostalgia and curiosity about how did they get away with the things they did back then. A generation clinging on to the reins of the previous century and one anxious to leap into the next were trapped in loose and conservative suburban America in the 1960s.

What Roma was to Alfonso Cuarón is The Hand of God is to Sarrantino, but The Hand of God is more obscene, outrageous, and hilarious. The transition from laughter to sadness and back is seamless, yet it is just as intimate.

Late Life: The Chien-Ming Wang Story is nevertheless worth seeing. Even though it doesn’t go into great detail on any current baseball issues or the Taiwanese heritage of its protagonist. Primarily because of its incredibly detailed baseball talks. The film is split into two parts, a sports documentary and a study on physical therapy. It rejects any stories about innate greatness and talent. And in the middle is Chien-Ming Wang, a kind, modest giant who makes for an unexpected but welcome sports celebrity.
