Worth, a new film from Netflix, starring Academy Award nominees Michael Keaton, Stanley Tucci, and Amy Ryan, examines the true story of attorney/mediator Kenneth Feinberg, who was tasked with heading the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund. Directed by Sara Colangelo and based on Feinberg's book What Is Life Worth?, the film follows Feinberg and his team as they initially go head to head with families and community leaders with a monetary figure in mind and soon learn that a price tag can not be attached to human life. It is playing in limited release in theaters and currently streaming on Netflix.
Yet another modern re-telling of the age-old tale of Cinderella has arrived via Columbia Pictures with distribution by Amazon, this time starring Camila Cabello as the downtrodden princess to be who wants to be a fashion designer. This musical version, directed by Kay Cannon (Pitch Perfect), also stars Idina Menzel as the wicked stepmother and Billy Porter as the fairy godmother, this time around now known as Fab G, who helps to make all of Cinderellas dreams come true. If the elaborate song and dance numbers and living happily ever after are your cup of tea, then this one is for you.
Marvel Studios keeps their amazing hot streak alive by dropping the long-awaited Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, starring Simu Liu in the title role as the martial arts master. First making his appearance in comic books back in 1973, Shang-Chi finally makes it to the big screen and is forced to confront his past as he joins the Ten Rings organization. Also along for the ride is Awkwafina as Shang-Chi's friend Katy and Tony Leung as nemesis the Mandarin. You can catch this in theaters nationwide, but to the dismay of many, it is not available on Disney + as of yet.
Nickelodeon star Victoria Justice's latest is called Afterlife of the Party. It is a light comedy that tugs at the heartstrings. Justice plays Cassie, who lives to party. As a result, she has neglected many of the people in her life. After a night of drinking, Cassie slips and falls in her bathroom and dies. She awakes to meet her guardian angel, who gives her five days to set things right with the people she has hurt in her life, or she will be denied entry into heaven and sent to the "other place." Tune in to Netflix to find out if she rights her past wrongs or winds up downstairs instead.
