Cinema Snippets: Early Man & The Mercy

Cinema Snippets: Early Man & The Mercy

It’s time for another collection of Cinema Snippets, my snippet-length reviews of recent cinema releases! After this post I’ve finally caught up with all the films I’ve seen over the past couple of weeks, so I can go back to writing full posts again. Phew!

Recently I saw two films with strong female main characters: I, Tonya, starring Margot Robbie, and Lady Bird, starring Saorise Ronan. I really liked them both! Here's my short review of each of the two films.

Today’s reviews are what I’m going to call the Strong Women Edition: Lady Bird and I, Tonya. I loved both of these films for completely different reasons! Here are my thoughts.
