MORNING GLORY (Theatrical Release USA 2010)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.7|5.0 Starsìììì

Morning Glory
—fresh and original—plays fast and hard. This adult film not only gives a peek into the stressful world of television news, but shows an interesting personal side to newscast relationships. For the modern-day, mature adult the movie is worth a watch. Nothing boring here due to the quick delivery. It takes engagement to watch this show. It’s not a ‘I can run to get popcorn and still pick up the storyline’ movie.
