    Wedding Season

    ★★★★

    fake dating trope? overbearing parents? a healthy sibling relationship? this is so entirely my shit.

    this film brought me so much joy and is exactly what a romcom should be. it isn’t perfect, but there is a lot of heart and emotion and the chemistry between the leading couple is SO satisfying. i also particularly adored the moments we saw between the sisters—ari afsar is truly a star.

  • Notting Hill

    Notting Hill

    ★★

    i did have a giggle and there were some scenes that i truly enjoyed, but they were few and far in between. as far as romcoms go: the premise is nice, but the execution fell flat for me. julia roberts is so charming as an actress, however.

    “i am beginning to know how it feels to be free.”

    pure is a beautiful work from director natalie jasmine harris. after highly anticipating this short for months, it more than exceeded my expectations. the story is cohesive and moving, the actors natural and convincing, and the cinematography absolutely breathtaking. i found myself in tears (the happy, contented kind) more than once.

    mikayla lashae bartholomew captures the struggles of sapphism and coming-of-age beautifully as our main character celeste & daniel smith…
