Underwater (2020)

What’s worse, being stranded in space or Underwater? The argument can be made that at least space is visible.

Three Christs

Is it possible to really understand someone else’s delusions? Doctor Alan Stone (Richard Gere) believes it’s possible. He simply wants to make a difference.

Marriage Story (2019)

That’s marriage. The union between actress Nicole (Scarlett Johansson) and theatre director Charlie (Adam Driver) has become tenuous and clearly headed for divorce.

Queen & Slim

Cherish the ride, no matter where it goes. Tinder brings together two people in a Cleveland, Ohio diner. One, “Queen,” (Jodie Turner-Smith) is a defendant lawyer. The other, “Slim,” (Daniel Kaluuya) is…not a lawyer. He’s a God-fearing family man, totally different from Queen, who’s a nonbeliever and distant from her kinfolk. The date isn’t bad, […]

Just Mercy

Hopelessness is the enemy of justice. Injustice arrives to take away Mr. Walter McMillian (Jamie Foxx) in 1987 Alabama after an average day out and about in the woods.
