2020 has been a difficult year for everyone. A global pandemic has caused many to lose family members, navigate unemployment, and thrusted the issue of mental health into the spotlight. It has also led to a much-needed racial reckoning, one that will likely take years to fully unpack. However, through all of this, there has been no shortage of films to consume. Here are my favourite films of 2020:

  1. There are still so many movies here I need to catch up on. It’s been a great year for movies I think, despite…everything!
    LOVE that Promising Young Woman made it so high, I think that might be my #1.
