CHICAGO – Patrick McDonald of HollywoodChicago.com appears on “The Morning Mess” with Scott Thompson on WBGR-FM (Monroe, Wisconsin) on September 18th, 2020, reviewing the new films “The Nest” (in theaters) and “Antebellum” (VOD).

The Nest Jude Law is Rory, a hard charging financial speculator in the 1980s, who decides to pull up stakes with his wife Allison (Carrie Coon) and two children, moving from New York City to his native London. What is revealed is that he is nearly broke, and he’s using his remaining money to pretend he is wealthy to impress his new employers. This unintentionally starts a downward spiral for the whole family. In select theaters. 4.5/5 stars.
