VENICE REPORT: JACKIE & RYAN


As the rest of the world was busy forgetting about Katherine Heigl, I was one of the few hoping she'd finally find another project worthy of her ability.

Good for the lot of them! Here are Venice reviews from Deborah Young at The Hollywood Reporter, Robbie Collin at The Hollywood Reporter, Catherine Bray at In Contention and Guy Lodge at Variety.
