89. Shut In

I mentioned, yesterday, that Amy Adams - the star of Arrival - is my favorite actress.  Well, I got a cinematic treat, this weekend, because Naomi Watts is my second-favorite actress (along with Elizabeth Olsen) and she has a new movie this weekend, as well, with Shut In.  Watts won me over, time after time after...
