Screen Queen

Lesbian visibility week (it really should be at least a month, don’t you think?) may be over, but there’s another unsung lesbian hero who deserves your attention – the late Chelly Wilson. If you loved Rachel Mason’s 2019 doc “Circus of Books,” then Valerie Kontakos’s “Queen of the Deuce” (Greenwich Entertainment) will be right up your alley.

Trans filmmaker Jane Schoenbrun hit it big in 2022 with their low-budget psychological horror movie debut, “We’re All Going to the World’s Fair.” It was a movie that wore its demographic-specific exclusivity like a badge of honor. In other words, if you weren’t into role-playing games, you might find yourself shivering out in the cold.

One way of looking at the new action/romance movie “The Fall Guy” (Universal) is that you don’t need to have seen a single episode of the 1980s TV series of the same name, starring Lee Majors, to enjoy this big screen adaptation. True, the movie’s main character does share the name Colt Seavers with the protagonist in the series, but that’s more of a reference point than anything.

Writer/director Minhal Baig’s third feature film “We Grown Now” (Sony Pictures Classics) officially announces her arrival as an important filmmaker. While it’s a much smaller film than say “Moonlight” or “American Fiction,” it nevertheless is sensitive, insightful, and even if you’re grown, you will probably cry at the end.

Horror comedy has come a long way since “Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein.” In the 21st century, movies such as “What We Do In the Shadows,” “Get Out,” “Zombieland,” “Ready or Not,” “The Blackening,” and “Freaky” have elevated the genre to new heights.

Originally scheduled to be released in autumn 2023, “Kiss Me Kosher” (Menemsha) was pulled from theaters in consideration of the horrific events that unfolded in early October 2023. Initially, the plan was to release “Kiss Me Kosher,” during “quieter times,” but perhaps in the spirit of possible (and wishful) reconciliation, it’s being given a second chance in the spring of 2024.
