“Zootopia”: Taking a political stand with talking animals

Meet Judy Hopps (Ginnifer Goodwin). She’s a bunny with a mission—one that her parents and the rest of the animals living in the sprawling city of Zootopia would call impossible.

A few female artists to listen for

Tom McCarthy’s Spotlight is a steadily riveting showcase of the Boston Globe’s famous uncover- ing of child abuse in the Catholic Church in 2002. At the time, almost nobody was aware of—or simply refused to acknowledge—this rampant problem with Catholic priests until a small team of investigative journalists look into it.

“Grandma” stuns as lesson in character development

Written and directed by Paul Weitz, the film speaks to the cross-generational plights of women, both young and old, and the challenges they face in modern American society.
