  • Mirror Mirror Review

    A stylish, sharp fairy tale with a rare (and welcome) lack of cynicism.

  • Venom Review

    Sadly, the only thing Venom has going for it is the Weinstein brothers' refusal to push it back despite being set in Hurricane Katrina-ravaged New Orleans, thus creating buzz. Mercy points for its brevity, as well.

Agnes and his brothers have little in common, except an eccentric old father, relationship problems that are totally screwing up their lives, and the distinct possibility those two things are connected. Hans-Jörg conceals his sexual frustration behind his meek librarian appearance. But his life changes drastically when he finds outlets for his anger and lusty libido. Werner is much more successful at political combat than family diplomacy. He's caught up in an upperclass suburban nightmare and bickering is the only heat left in his marriage. Agnes is haunted by the mother she never knew and perhaps too nostalgic about her past as a man. Despite her efforts, transgendered Agnes just can't quite fit into the mold of the little homemaker expected by her bossy boyfriend. Once she's out on the streets alone, Agnes wipes away her tears and proudly takes on her bleak future with a smile.
