MOVIE REVIEW

Review by Nathan Samdahl (C+)

There are two kinds of films that take a lot for me to really enjoy: period films and biopics.  Too often the former are too stodgy and bland, and the latter struggle to pick the right life moments to portray (usually resulting in an inconsistent final product).  So I was more than happy to discover that the movie that I was to see - Coco Before Chanel - fell squarely within both genres.   Perhaps, though, Coco could enter into the lean group of period biopics that defy the mold and find a unique, fresh way to tell an old story.  Unfortunately, it did not.   Full movie review »
