The Other Lamb
Most of the movie keeps up the narrative suspense against a gorgeous but bleak minimalistic backdrop of rainy, windswept mountains.
Films by Bong Joon Ho and Greta Gerwig dominated on Saturday night at the annual awards dinner held by the Chicago Film Critics Association, winning four awards each. Bong’s “Parasite” walked home with prizes for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, and Best Foreign Language Film. Gerwig’s “Little Women” matched the Cannes winner with awards for Best Costume Design, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Original Score, and Best Supporting Actress. The only other multiple winner was nomination leader “Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood” with two – Best Art Direction and Best Supporting Actor.
