Kate and Geoff have been married for, as the title states, "45 Years." After establishing the northeast English locale and Kate's daily routine, a devastating telegram arrives for Geoff. The thaw of a glacier in Switzerland has unearthed the body of Katya, his girlfriend who died in a fall before Geoff met Kate. Shock waves radiate from this disorienting news.
2015 has brought very good films to St. Louis. Here are my top ten films plus a few more:
1. "Spotlight" is Tom McCarthy's intelligent scrutiny of the Boston Globe's investigation of pedophile priests and the reach of the Catholic Church's influence. A great ensemble of actors anchors and energizes this vital story.
This movie should be so much better. It squats solidly at the mediocre level, but, mercy! It should have been so much better, what with the proven actor, Dustin Hoffman, serving as director, and a roster of stars that should have sparkled all over the place.
