run movie review

Sarah Paulson gives new meaning to the overprotective mother in Run, the latest from Searching director Aneesh Chaganty. In a thriller that seems at least partially inspired by the true story of Dee Dee and Gypsy Rose Blanchard, Paulson plays Diane, a smothery mom from hell – a woman who will stop at nothing to keep her daughter from the outside world. That daughter is Chloe (Kiera Allen), a 17-year-old wheelchair user who suffers from a dictionary’s worth of ailments. Or so she’s been told. But Chloe has grown restless in her teen years, and she longs to finally leave home for college. Surely dear old mom can understand that, right?

ratched trailer final

Call me crazy, but when I watched One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, I never once thought, “This movie needs a prequel revealing that Louise Fletcher’s Nurse Ratched is actually a crazy serial killer.” But that’s apparently exactly what Ryan Murphy thought, and since no one knows how to say “no” to Ryan Murphy anymore, here we are with Ratched. The Netflix series has frequent Murphy player Sarah Paulson playing the nurse, and while it certainly looks all kinds of stylish, I can’t help but ask: Why?
