On this week’s ScreenPicks Movie Podcast, we review three movies: Onward, The Way Back and All the Bright Places.
Pixar’s latest animated feature Onward centers on two teenage elf brothers (voices of Chris Pratt and Tom Holland), who embark on a quest to spend one last day with their father and discover if there is still magic out there.
In The Way Back, Ben Affleck stars as Jack Cunningham,a high-school basketball phenom who walked away from the game, forfeiting his future. Years later, Jack has lost his way after a tragedy but reluctantly accepts a coaching job at his alma mater, giving him one last shot at redemption.
Finally, the Netflix romance drama All the Bright Places tells the story of Violet (Elle Fanning) and Theodore (Justice Smith), who meet and change each other's lives forever. As they struggle with the emotional and physical scars of their past, they discover that even the smallest places and moments can mean something.
