HollywoodChicago.com Oscarman rating: 3.5/5.0
Rating: 3.5/5.0

This is a three person drama, taking place in a British flat during the pandemic, from January of 2020 through March of 2021. It involves He (James McAvoy) and She (Sharon Horgan of the TV series “Catastrophe”) and their ten-year-old son Artie (Samuel Logan). He and She talk to the camera, as if being profiled for a documentary, by way of group therapy, and as the months go by we see their shaky relationship go through many changes.

“Together” is in select theaters on August 27th. See local listings for theaters and show times. Featuring James McAvoy, Sharon Horgan and Samuel Logan. Written by Dennis Kelly. Directed by Justin Martin and Stephen Daldry. Rated “R”

  • Trade Federation, Otherworld Theatre

    CHICAGO – Theatrical satires of the Star Wars Universe are like the number of TV series the universe has wrought … too many to figure out if anything is worthwhile. But “Trade Federation” (subtitled “Or Let’s Explore Globalization Through the Star Wars Prequels”), presented by Otherworld Theatre in Wrigleyville Chicago, gets it right on.
