*This is one of eight films that I saw during a summer traveling around Europe. I did not write full reviews for these movies, but I have shared mini-reviews that were originally posted on social media to Sitting In The Cinema*
Wonder Woman overcomes over-exposition and conventional plotting with a firm tone, fully realized character arcs, and a whip-smart egalitarianism that makes anything but feminism and humanism seem preposterous- by means of denormalizing any alternatives. Gal Gadot exceeded my expectations. Kudos to Patty Jenkins for the female-led superhero movie we didn't deserve. Points for Trainspotting's Spud.
