Editorial: What’s at the movies?

| March 28, 2024 | 0 Comments

One of the many nice features about newspapers in a democratic country is that differing opinions can be shared with readers. Conflicting arguments on the issues of the day, including arts and culture, can be printed and read.

Here, at the Larchmont Chronicle, our half–dozen regular columnists are free to have views different from one another and from this paper’s publisher and editors.

Tasteful expression of different opinions leads to better results, in my experience. For example, our movie reviewer is very enamored this month (Section 1, Page 24) of the just-released British comedy / mystery “Wicked Little Letters.”

However, our reviewer takes director Thea Sharrock to task for a casting decision for a character whose “casting ignores the actualities of the time and place of the film.”

I don’t think that will bother me when I get to see the movie, but different viewers have different outlooks. And that is good. Personally, I am looking forward to a remake of “Patton” with the general being played by Jennifer Lawrence.
