THE GO-GO'S

ColeSmithey.comThe world needs more all-girl bands!

"We Got The Beat," "Our Lips Are Sealed," and "Vacation" are power pop standards that still get crowds dancing.

Documentarian Alison Ellwood gives The Go-Go's a soup-to-nuts treatment with full access to the band members (and former band members), and a treasure trove of photos and live performance clips.

Cool stuff.

Key band members Charlotte Caffey, Jane Wiedlin, Belinda Carlisle, Kathy Valentine, and Gina Shock, dish the dirt about band infighting over drugs, money, betrayal, and making music together.

Oh, the mistakes.

The Go-Go's are the most successful all-girl group of all time.

ColeSmithey.comThis tearjerker rolls deep.

"CODA" (child of deaf adults) hits all the right notes.

Communication is the key for CODA's family of fishers.

Sex is treated as a normal thing for the once in American Cinema. 

Refreshing.

Emilia Jones gives a fierce performance as a hopeful young singer with a golden tone.

Jones's worthy co-actors (Troy Kotsur, Marlee Matlin, Daniel Durant, and Eugenio Derbez) pull their weight.

Wow.

If your heart's not on your sleeve, it's probably in the wrong place.
