LJ Media | Review Alert: April 1, 2018

This title stands out for its honest and unflinching look at people, their fears, and their recurring mistakes; this engaging work will be in demand; these complementary silent film titles make a persuasive case for a bygone era’s art; most viewers will be entranced by Victoria’s addictive combination of passion, drama, and history; realistic yet inspiring for those who dream about making it in Silicon Valley, particularly young women
