HONEY, I SHRUNK THE KIDS
When kids sneak into inventor Wayne Szalinski's upstairs lab to retrieve an errant baseball, his experimental shrink ray miniaturizes them. When Szalinski returns home, he destroys the device -- which he thinks is a failure -- and dumps it in the trash, throwing out the kids along with it. The four children, now 1/4-inch tall, must survive the journey back to the house through a yard where sprinklers bring treacherous storms and garden-variety ants stampede like elephants.

Story Screen writer Jack Kolodziejski writes: "By all accounts, The Favourite is Yorgos Lanthimos’ best film. It’s perfectly written and acted. It’s gorgeous to listen to and look at. It tells a story with resonance and staying power. In this way, it is also his most accessible film, and is sure to attract much more favorable attention from critics and audiences alike than his more divisive previous work."

Story Screen Founder Mike Burdge, who listed the film as his #5 favorite movie of 2018, writes: "A fresh and intense new pillar into the figurative backbone of American Cinema, Blindspotting is almost too exciting and inspirational for its own good. Sporting an exquisitely honed in and tonally relevant/required soundtrack, the film exists on a constant high of utilizing the medium of film to communicate anything and everything it has on its mind. It's also really, really funny. Not since the likes of Spike Lee's heyday in the 90's have we received such contemporary and bold think pieces on race and culture in the American landscape, at least not as unique as the director's first line-up of his filmography. Blindspotting is one of those movies it is very easy to throw the term “necessary” and “must see” onto, and nobody would be judged wrongly for doing so. It is exactly that: a solid piece of attitude driven filmmaking with a theme of despair and a lesson on empathy and understanding the world and your place in it, and just how might one come about changing both. “Don't be who you isn't.”
