Avoidance Can Be OK
Here’s what to watch while you’re hiding from your family.
Need a break? We got you:
Erin Brockovich (Amazon Prime) — Between lead contamination in Flint and privatization in Pittsburgh, this has been a terrible year for municipal water. No better time to remember that the plot of the best Julia Roberts movie can actually happen in real life.
A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night (Netflix) — This one goes out to everyone walking three miles home from the bar the night before Thanksgiving because late-night public transit and/or Lyft in your town is nonexistent! The only thing scarier than an unofficial high school reunion at a bar is an actual vampire — which is what this Iranian film is about. The vampire, however, is cooler than everyone you’ve ever known.
