    Film #16 in March Around the World 2020 - Georgia

    I just chose this film because I was struggling to find films for March Around the World 2020 - I'm so glad I chose this one.

With almost universal praise by critics and audiences alike, Lulu Wang's film is already widely considered to be one of the best movies released in 2019.

    This is a deeply moving and unexpectedly playful film, which provides a look at how other cultures deal with…
