Uzo Aduba gives a fine performance in the otherwise flat "Miss Virginia," playing real-life education advocate Virginia Walden Ford.

The movie's effort to separate a feel-good story from its political foundation does not earn it a passing grade.

Miss Virginia exerts a strong pull at times, thanks largely to Aduba's superb performance.

Abuda is a talented actress, but her limited range and dull acting choices turn "Miss Virginia," the movie and the character, into a shrinking violet.

February 18, 2020 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

This five-star film takes an alternate route by addressing an ongoing issue that proves if disadvantaged children did not grow up in the wrong zip code, their lives would not be predetermined by the circumstances of their environment.

November 1, 2019 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

The striving spirit is stirring and the capacity for empathy towards its causes is formidable.
