Cole Sprouse and Kathryn Newton in Lisa Frankenstein

In the mood for a horror-comedy? | Lisa Frankenstein

Lisa Frankenstein, directed by Zelda Williams from a script by Academy Award®-winner Diablo Cody, turns the classic tale of terror into a 1980s-styled horror romp. An awkward teen, Lisa Swallows (Kathryn Newton), finds her first meaningful relationship with a 19th-century corpse (Cole Sprouse), miraculously reanimated by a freak electrical storm. Unable to connect to her bubbly stepsister (Liza Soberano) or autocratic stepmom (Carla Gugino), Lisa finds purpose in helping put her beau’s life and body back together. The film, the A.V. Club writes, “is performed by a very game cast who all understand the assignment and deliver what is likely to be one of the funniest films of the year.”

Evan Rachel Wood, Debra Winger, and Richard Jenkins in Kajillionaire

In the mood for a sweet crime caper? | Kajillionaire

In Kajillionaire, Miranda July finds the human connection in running a confidence game. An adult child of small-time grifters (Richard Jenkins and Debra Winger), Old Dolio (Evan Rachel Wood) is often more an accomplice than a daughter. Living in an office space adjacent to a leaking bubble factory, her future seems uncertain. When Melanie (Gina Rodriguez) joins the unruly gang, however, Old Dolio finally meets someone who sees her as she is. “It’s an emotional heist story,” July told Rolling Stone. Vox writes, “Kajillionaire is a movie about love and loneliness, and it’s funny and bittersweet and beautiful.”

Lesley Manville and Lambert Wilson in Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris

In the mood for a feel-good fairy tale? | Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris

In Anthony Fabian’s Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris, Lesley Manville plays the title character, a London charwoman who gets a second chance at life after she sees an original Dior gown and decides she must have one for herself. In her whirlwind adventure to Paris and the world of haute couture, she gets more than a new frock. Her newfound love for life shows all who meet her that she is so much more than she first appears. With a stunning supporting cast that includes Isabelle Huppert, Lucas Bravo, and Alba Baptista, the film, writes Salon, “is as irresistible as the Dior dress Mrs. Harris covets.” The Observer writes, “Nothing wrong with a movie in today’s troubled winter of discontent that exists solely for the purpose of creating joy and goodwill, and Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris spreads them around like butter.”

Cate Blanchett in TÁR

In the mood for an acclaimed drama? | TÁR

Nominated for seven Academy Awards®—including Best Picture and Best Actress—Todd Field’s TÁR is a tour-de-force exploration of genius. Cate Blanchett plays Lydia Tár, a brilliant conductor who has just taken over a major German orchestra and plans to make her mark in the music world with her version of Mahler’s Fifth Symphony. But when rumors of improper behavior start to appear, Tár’s world falls apart. “The movie is breathtaking—in its drama, its high-crafted innovation, its vision,” Variety writes. “It’s a ruthless but intimate tale of art, lust, obsession, and power.”

Rory Cochrane, Jason London, and Sasha Jenson in Dazed and Confused

In the mood to party like it's the 1970s? | Dazed and Confused

Return to the 1970s with Richard Linklater’s American classic Dazed and Confused. On the last day of classes at Lee High School in Austin, Texas, students and more—played by an extraordinary cast that includes Milla Jovovich, Adam Goldberg, Parker Posey, Cole Hauser, Ben Affleck, and Matthew McConaughey—put off tomorrow by having one last day together. Entertainment Weekly wrote, “Once every decade or so, a movie captures the hormone-drenched, fashion-crazed, pop-song-driven rituals of American youth culture with such loving authenticity that it comes to seem a kind of anthem, as innocently giddy and spirited as the teenagers it’s about.”
