High Flying Bird
First screened in November 2019
Director: Steven Soderbergh. Cast: André Holland, Zazie Beetz, Melvin Gregg, Sonja Sohn, Bill Duke, Kyle McLachlan, Justin Hurtt-Dunkley, Jeryl Prescott, Zachary Quinto, Reggie Jackson, Karl-Anthony Towns, Donovan Mitchell. Screenplay: Tarell Alvin McCraney.

Twitter Capsule: That is quite a script, and Soderbergh still excels with actors. Not sure his direction maximizes every potential.

VOR:   Soderbergh could really stand to flex his aesthetic, but for him and for McCraney, this is what it's about: a suave challenge to industry norms.
