The Oscar nominated "Summer of Soul" is now available on DVD and digital. We happened to watch it the morning of the Oscar nominations and found it to be amazing and powerful. It is a look at a music festival that took place in 1969, but it's more than that. It's so much more and it ought to be seen.
Here's the thing... nuance exists, shades of grey exist. It is true that one's film diet shouldn't simply consist of Marvel movies, but it is also true that there are Marvel movies that have a lot to say. More than that, Marvel movies come in all shapes and sizes and even genres. One only need look at "Eternals" to see as much.
Imagine taking a bright and colorful animated film, one filled with incredible songs, and making it about something as deeply profound as what it means to put yourself out there, to reveal who you truly are and what scares you. That is exactly what the filmmakers have done with Disney's "Encanto" and it's marvelous.
