2020 movies

Oh, 2020. What more is there to say about you? COVID and Quibi and Biden and Trump; plans canceled, protests held, Animals Crossed, Boltcutters Fetched, doughs soured, interactions Zoomed. And through it all, some movies actually saw the light of day. So in our annual wrap-up to a truly unprecedented year, our staff looked back to some cinematic highlights for SAGindie’s FAVORITE FILMS OF 2020.
