Arresting psychological drama Shirley stuns at Berlinale 2020. Josephine Decker’s psychological drama, Shirley, weaves together achy emotional worlds with stunning finesse, each moment of the tensely-plotted and painterly-gorgeous film inching forward toward one metaphorical heart-wrenching scream.
