Tallulah Review

Tallulah Review

RATING: (3 STARS) As I was watching Sian Heder’s Tallulah, I couldn’t shake the implausibility of the premise. A young nomadic woman steals the baby of a rich, careless mother?

Touchy Feely Review

But there was one thing that was really bothering me about this project: I […]
