Beyond the Lights
Beyond the Lights is a story about a glitzy mega-star singer and her relationship with a policeman who has political aspirations and a boy-scout code of ethics. With a setup like this I was ready for a formulaic okay-to-watch ride that might fizzle before the end. Well, it did follow the formula but also transcended it in a special way. I was impressed. I think most of the credit goes to the primary actors. The script was good and never lost its way, but the actors really took it up a couple notches.

Not the kind of movie that wins awards, or makes one ponder the meaning of life. But it is an easy recommendation, nonetheless.
