Nimona should be a lesson for Hollywood these days. A fun, entertaining well done adaptation of a popular graphic novel that captures the heart of its story. It’s also a story with deep meaning and diversity that almost didn’t get made. The fact that it did is one of the reasons Netflix, for all it’s … More Nimona
