We’re celebrating the new year with some tonally different new movies this week. First up is Pieces of a Woman, a new melodrama hitting Netflix this week, which stars Vanessa Kirby and Shia LaBeouf. Then we get into Sylvie’s Love, a new throwback romance on Amazon Prime starring Tessa Thompson and Nnamdi Asomugha. Finally, Will and Abby discuss The Midnight Sky on Netflix, directed by George Clooney, who also stars in the film alongside Felicity Jones. We also cover a few mini reviews in Off-Topics, which include “Cobra Kai” Season 3, We Can Be Heroes, Shadow in the Cloud, and News of the World.
