This week, Alice Reese reviews "The Diary of a Teenage Girl" and "American Ultra." The former is a creative look at coming of age in the hedonistic 1970s, while the latter is an unusual mix of comedy, action and drama.

This week Alice reviews The Man from U.N.C.L.E., a re-make of a TV show from the 1960s, Straight Outta Compton, a look at the life of famous rap group NWA, and Shaun the Sheep Movie, a movie with no dialogue and some sheep on a mission.
This week on Movie Picks with Alice Reese, Alice reviews Ricki and the Flash, starring Meryl Streep, The Gift, written, directed, and starred in by Joel Edgerton, and The End of the Tour, with Jesse Eisenberg and Jason Segel.

Hear about current releases from Greenville's movie critic extraordinaire, Alice Reese!
