Milwaukee Film Festival – Day 7: Bronx Gothic, Lucky, Life of the Party
By Andrea Thompson
Life is a strange, strange, thing. Sometimes it’s magical, giving us joy when we least expect it. Other times, it gives us the most painful experiences we could never imagine, leaving us to cope as best we can. That strangeness, that randomness, is on full display for day seven of the Milwaukee Film Festival. Each film is about life taking us to unexpected places, and how we must process that, whether it happens to be about a black woman coping with growing up in 1980s America, an elderly man in a small town facing his impending death, or the various wedding reception attendees musing about where they were and where they all are now.
