Greenfingers (2000)

A prison inmate with a green thumb goes on to compete in a national gardening competition.

Likeable, but unremarkable comedy drama.

Halliwell (no star): "Corny comedy of an isolated group of macho men gaining self-respect in an unexpected way; it is loosely based on a true story but has little connection with reality."

Maltin**1/2: "Minor but diverting film...A bit too pat, but pleasant."

Paradies: Hoffnung (2013)

A chubby, virginal teen at a weight-loss camp develops a crush on her doctor and becomes determined to seduce him.

Grim, bleak and unpitying look at human aspriations and desires in a heartless world; no paradise and not much hope to be found.

Inès de la Fressange

New Stuff: BadBadNotGood

Maelys Garouis

Hidden Figures (2016)

The story of a team of female African-American mathematicians who served a vital role in NASA during the early years of the U.S. space program.

Well-meant, likeable vindication of the female African-American's participation in NASA is professionally staged with an excellent cast, but is disappointing in its bending the singular success stories into white savior tales.
