I know it’s only the end of January, but trust me when I tell you Maddie Ziegler’s new movie is a special one.

Now I'm hopeful that will happen in 2022. The film marks Megan Park’s feature screenwriting and directing debut. Ziegler stars alongside Jenna Ortega as Mia and Vada, respectively. The two aren’t...
