Kylo Ren, the Parent Wound, and Complicating Good vs Evil in Star Wars: The Force Awakens

“Abrams did a marvelous job of complicating the notion that just because you may fight for the side of Light, that doesn’t mean you’re a good person, just as fighting for the side of Dark doesn’t necessarily make you a bad person.” My 26th article for HuffPost, published in February 2016.
