Define "Interesting"

I’m really thrilled to get to present an award at the RWA’s Award Ceremony at the National Conference in July.  It's kind of a big deal.

It's that truly rare thing: a movie that is both fun to watch and really, really well-crafted. Here's what is less obvious:  It's a story about superheroes that is really about humanity.
