(a film review by Mark R. Leeper)

SHIRLEY: Elizabeth Moss plays Shirley Jackson in this tedious biopic, which is more an experiment in style than in entertaining narrative. It uses a completely fictional young couple to create a long dull telling of Jackson's personal life. It does have some odd experimental uses of color, similar at times to Douglas Sirk's. Released 06/05/20; available on Amazon Prime and others. Rating: low 0 (-4 to +4)
