New January Drama Movies
With the Oscars postponed till April and Berlinale 2021 developing a new format - separate online platforms for the industry and a summer event for the public - what is left is to continue our routine of watching movies at home. It's no longer a big drama and we accept it as it is. Though in a massive basket of new movie titles, you have to rummage hard to successfully pull out a real deal. But keep trying, especially when January features so many serious drama pieces for a spoiled spectator:
