Daddy’s Home 2 (The Florida Project)

After a long career of working behind the scenes for L.A.’s downtrodden, a socially inept legal savant (Denzel Washington) goes to work at a law firm run by a slick shark (Colin Farrell) who represents everything he despises. The strong performances are ultimately lost in the fog of a strange and confusing and bumpy and sometimes implausible story line.

 

Wonder (Drama, PG, 1 hr. 53 min., 2017)

In a sun-dappled but decidedly dark and severely fractured fairy tale, the children of impoverished millennials get themselves into all sorts of trouble in a garishly painted, barely inhabitable, rundown motel outside Orlando. The film does a masterful job of exploring a world rarely explored in movies. (Drama, R, 1 hr. 55 min., 2017)
