Dove Approved for All Ages

Wonderstruck is wonderful! Though cloaked in tragedy and loss, this movie is utterly enchanting.

Manchester by the Sea

"Manchester by the Sea" is a beautifully filmed movie that makes clear the point--not everything that is broken can be mended, at least not in this life.

I was really surprised after screening this film that it is rated R. I think it should be rated NC-17.

The [...]

Brokeback Mountain

December 9, 2005
What little dialog the film contained was heavy with profanity, and I'm surprised at the sexual content they were able to include and still garner an "R" rating. It isn't an exaggeration when the critics highlight the heart-wrenching nature of this film. While it is based on the homosexual [...]
