  11. August: Osage County ★★★★½ I loved this! Meryl Streep was amazing. Julia Roberts gave a really strong performance. And it had Benedict Cumberbatch. Need I say more?
  12. The Dreamers ★★★☆☆ (rewatched)
  13. Jagten ★★★½☆ Almost all the points I gave this movie are for Mads Mikkelsen’s amazing acting. The pace of the movie was maddeningly slow, especially in the latter half, and the treatment of the topic was not particularly innovative. Also, I have a hard time enjoying movies that showcase the petty evil of humankind.
