Orlando, FL</strong>

A little elegance in life never hurts and Miss Pettyfer is packed with the sort of elegance a washed up 1930’s movie stars exuded in the post war era. Miss Pettyfer come to us tonight, breezy and destitute and full of the sort of faded nonchalance impossible in today’s society. She tells a tail; one not too tall, not one too short, and not one quite just right. Howard (Lambert) possesses a hunch back and a fantasy of marital bliss. His friend Margaret (Solomon) has wild hair and permeant neck scarf; she thinks the scarf keeps her head from falling off and who are we to argue? On Margaret’s birthday she receives a purple velour track suit as a gift from Howard; she wisely rejects it and flees. A chance meeting with Miss P sends her back in a marrying rage; Howard and Margaret decide to flee to Maine and start a garden, first thing never. Oh, if it could only happen…

It’s a slightly surreal story, told with a confidence that makes you agree to any sort of odd idea Miss P offers. She looks better than the others, flies about the stage on a walker, and affords fresh flowers ever week even if it means skipping dinner. Speculate on the purpose of the story if you will; but once in side of it you are compelled to follow its logic and be grateful your head is held on by more than an itchy scarf. I rate this as offbeat but charming; perhaps it can become a delightful sorbet between the meaty Vietnam course and the roughage of a political campaign show.

Screen Reviews

Lily and Generoso review Hold Me Tight, the sixth feature directed by renowned actor Mathieu Amalric. Centered around a brilliant performance from Vicky Krieps (Phantom Thread, Bergman Island), Hold Me Tight is an unpredictable and remarkable psychological drama.

Screen Reviews

The fact that the band Slaves to Sirens exists is impressive, but that they live, love, and breathe to play metal takes things to another level. Sirens documents the journey. Review by Charles DJ Deppner.
