Medfield movie gets a rave review

Brush with Hollywood –

Filmed (partly) in Medfield – on Rte. 27, and they also stored their trailers at Medfield State Hospital –

★★★★
Any way you slice it, ‘Knives Out’ is hilarious
Pound for pound, actor for actor, laugh for laugh, “Knives Out” may be the most entertaining movie of the year, writes Globe critic Ty Burr, who gives the movie four out of four stars.

It’s a gift and a skewering, a love letter and a pratfall — an old school murder mystery breathed into riotous new life by a young Jedi master of moviemaking, Rian Johnson. And it really deserves the establishment of a new Oscar category for Best Honey-Baked Ham, whose 2019 recipient could only be Daniel Craig.

Rose Colleran and Susan Weisenfeld (above) have co-chaired the Medfield Foundation Angel Run for many years, and today announced that they will do so for two more spectacular, family fun filled Angel Runs, this December 2 and in 2019.

Therefore, the Medfield Foundation is looking for someone interested in learning how to operate the Angel Run over the next fifteen months by apprenticing to these two pros, to learn the ropes, and to then take over running the Angel run to be held in early December 2020.  The Angel Run is Medfield premier family fun event, and raises monies for Medfield families in need.
