Ema

Peter Nellhaus @ Coffee, Coffee and more Coffee

  • Excerpt: Ema is basically a showcase for actress Mariana Di Girolamo. Ema is a force of nature who refuses to deal with anyone else other than her own terms.

Minari

Peter Nellhaus @ Coffee, Coffee and more Coffee

  • Excerpt: What is unexpected is that Chung’s film does not have the cliches one might expect in a story about Asian immigrants in America, especially in a region one might perceive of as less hospitable.

Peter Nellhaus @ Coffee, Coffee and more Coffee
