Bombshell [2019] ★★½

“Bombshell” flirts with greatness so many times, it’s a shame it never truly reaches its full potential. It has an important story to tell, no doubt about that, and just the right actors to carry it through. But there’s still something missing. Charlize Theron, Nicole Kidman and Margot […]
