The Columnist

The Columnist ★★★½

Hooptober 8.0 

Film 4/33 6 Countries: Netherlands


This was a fun film. It isn’t going to spot into your favorite of all time. That said, if you want a slick and easy to watch Dutch films that asks “why can’t we be nice” then this is your film!

Famka is a wholesome columnist struggling with writing her columns and a new book, dating, and raising a daughter. Through all this stress comes the added crap of trolls accusing her of crimes, calling her names, and smearing her reputation. In the face of this strife, she does what you would do…find catharsis in murdering her online tormentors.

It’s witty, oddly wholesome, and ends well. You can do a lot worse!
