Dear TBP Family:
The Bigger Picture will be going hiatus for a little while. The last ten months have been a truly joyful experiment—we’ve cranked through more than a hundred movies together, if you can believe it! But I need to borrow the time from TBP to pour into a couple of other exciting projects, including the Spread (sign up for free if you haven’t already), that are taking off and need more of me.
This is truly a goodnight-and-not-goodbye situation. You never know when TBP will pop up in your inbox with a must-watch gem or an impassioned roundup; for now, it just won’t be on a weekly basis. Any time you need an idea for movie night, the TBP archives will remain open and ready to serve. (Paying subscribers’ monthly charges will be paused while TBP is on sabbatical.)
Before we bid this temporary adieu, I’m leaving you with a bangin’ list of some of our most popular posts, containing dozens of hit-the-spot family picks spanning whatever kind of movie your bunch may be craving.
From the bottom of my heart: thank you for joining our crew on this adventure!
PS: Extra thanks to illustrator Mara Sprafkin, without whom TBP wouldn’t be half as much fun. You can find Mara here.
