UglyDolls (2019) Sr. Rose Pacatte While this is obviously a movie directed at children, adults can appreciate the opportunity to reflect on the power of positive self-esteem and looking for the good in everyone. Clarkson is a perfect voice for Moxy. EDIT

Knock Down the House (2019) Sr. Rose Pacatte AOC is the film's darling, but the three other strong women profiled are deeply inspiring and committed in their own right. EDIT

Photograph (2019) Sr. Rose Pacatte This sweet coming-of-age story is by writer-director Ritesh Batra, who made 2013's The Lunchbox. I love both of these films because they offer insights into humanity, family, culture, and the values that guide us through life. EDIT

No Country for Old Men (2007) Sr. Rose Pacatte It's a smart film and pure Coen. It has a point, though some may contest it. But it's not a must-see film for everyone so if you are a Coen fan, don't take your grandmother. She will say it sucks. EDIT
