A listless but lustrously shot biopic...

September 22, 2017 | Rating: C- | Full Review…

Woman Walks Ahead remains stagnant as a politically correct but enervating historical drama.

September 20, 2017 | Full Review…

Despite the estimable talent on hand both behind and in front of the camera, the story never comes to convincing life and doesn't, in the end, have anywhere particularly surprising or interesting to go.

As white savior stories go, it's still progress to find one that lives up to such a feminist title as this.

The real issue, though, is that it confuses different types of oppression, and seems to propose that people who've experienced misogyny are uniquely qualified to understand racism and vice versa.

Well-crafted, ably told and manages to connect with its earnest good intentions and desire to please.
