Till absolutely blew me away. This is a powerful movie that doesn’t stop. Our main character Mamie, (Danielle Deadwyler) was fantastic. Her performance was riveting, heartbreaking, and courageous. The way she told her story and the way she portrayed epic emotions deserves an award. Really, if she doesn’t earn something for this movie I’ll know for sure that the awards are rigged. She ripped my heart out and had me feeling her pain so well that I was crying like a baby. Sitting here thinking back on it, it still takes my breath away.
This story absolutely deserves the big screen, I’m ashamed of the America that would allow such inhumane and barbaric behavior. It makes me angry to see how things truly were and how unfair life is for so many. Prepare yourself to feel emotions, a bunch of emotions.
I highly recommend watching Till, I have my fingers crossed that we’ll be seeing more of this at the Oscars.
About The Peetimes: This was an extremely hard movie to do Peetimes for. I feel confident that the 2 spots I found will keep you in tune with the storyline.

Till is a profoundly emotional and cinematic film about the true story of Mamie Till Mobley’s relentless pursuit of justice for her 14-year-old son, Emmett Till, who, in 1955, was lynched while visiting his cousins in Mississippi….

RunPee.com owes RunPee Sis a huge debt of gratitude. She sees any movie needed with no complaints and has done so for ten years (even basing Thanksgiving and Christmas family festivities around the seeing films). In 2015 Sis ran the entire RunPee enterprise herself, while RunPee Dan, Jilly and Mom went traipsing off to Europe. Sis is the spider in the web holding the RunPee family together — besides being a funny, well rounded person, and a joyous pleasure to be around. Her favorite films start and end with horror (which thank goodness she’s happy to see, since most of us don’t have the stomach for it) — but also likes silly comedies, sad dramas, and musicals of all types. If you’ve used a Peetime for a scary film, you probably have RunPee Sis to thank for it.
Favorite movie genre: Horror, horror, and more horror. The more disturbing, the better. Period.
