THE LIGHT SIDE (2020) Tribeca 2020
One of the best films at this year's Tribeca is also one of the best Star Wars related films I've ever run a cross. It is also one of 2020's best films-period. Speaking volumes beyond the George Lucas nonsense , this film talks about self, home, humanity, immigration and finding a place in the world. It a film that uses science fiction to deal with important modern issues and becomes something glorious.
This film floored me. I figured it was going to be a goof and so I just watched it as an after thought. Was I wrong. This film is a gem. A perfectly modulated film that makes us laugh and touches the heart. I can not recommend this film enough.
A must. See it.
