Consensus Comparison: Nancy Meyers, Bahrani, The Ross Brothers September 26, 2015

All of the new releases covered this week are American, something that happens rarely on this site. Another coincidence: three of the movies below are by directing duos.

Your Film of the Week is the Ross brothers’ Western, which has been disappointingly overlooked by critics (only seven reviews on Rotten Tomatoes and one review collected here this whole month).
