This past Friday saw the release of a handful of interesting movies, including tick tick boom!, the new Jonathan Larsen biopic starring Andrew Garfield directed by Lin Manuel Miranda (in theaters for a week before coming to Netflix), Red Notice, a big budget globe-trotting action heist type thing starring The Rock, Ryan Reynolds, and Gal Gadot, and Home Sweet Home Alone which does exactly what it says on the tin, and can be found on Disney+.
For our Staff Picks we decided to highlight movies set in newsrooms that were about print media. Why? Well, there's a new documentary premiering on PBS this coming Monday, called Storm Lake, about small-town Iowa newspaper the Storm Lake Times, and we're pretty excited to share an interview Bruce Miller did recently with Storm Lake's Pulitzer Prize winning editor Art Cullen.
Storm Lake, directed by Jerry Risius and Beth Levison, premieres Monday, Nov. 15 on PBS at 10/9c. Check your local listings.
