Ignorant Bliss: Polite Society, Carmen, and Peter Pan & Wendy review

Polite Society is a fun and playful homage to 70s martial arts film that also mixes in Jane Austin-style romance and early 2000s teen comedies. The core sister relationship of Ria and Lena ties this fun remix of styles together to make a great theater experience.

Grade: B

Carmen feels like an interpolation of the classic Opera. While it’s not wholly successful in everything it does, this new modern American Carmen does succeed in making an engaging film-watching experience.

Grade: C+

Peter Pan and Wendy is purposefully crafted with care and thoughtfulness, and while it succeeds in expanding the ideas of Wendy, Hook, and Tiger Lily, it’s at the cost of the character of Peter Pan.

Grade: B-
