Hi movie fans!

As the country moves unevenly toward opening, so it is with Hollywood. The academy announced that it was delaying the 2021 Oscars by two months and Christopher Nolan’s “Tenet” will arrive two weeks later than expected, on July 31. But AMC Theaters has said it is sticking to its plan to reopen nearly all its multiplexes next month and will not require masks, though that last part has prompted a social media backlash. For now, there are plenty of new movies to check out from the comfort of your couch, like Channing Godfrey Peoples’s charming debut, “Miss Juneteenth,” and Agnieszka Holland’s political thriller “Mr. Jones.”
