The Talented Mr. Ripley

This fantastic adaptation of Patricia Highsmith's classic thriller follows a deadly case of mistaken identity.  —Emily

The Lighthouse

I could watch Robert Pattinson and Willem Dafoe play two lighthouse keepers who slowly go crazy (in black and white) all day long. —Gina


Amy Adams stars as a linguistics professor who risks her life to attempt communication with extraterrestrial life. It’s a beautiful, moving, and thoughtful movie. —Jenny

An unusual ghost story that follows a cursed dress as it passes from person to person following their tragic endings.  —Emily

In Bruges

If you enjoyed Martin McDonagh's The Banshees of Inisherin, check out this earlier black comedy film about a hitman in hiding. —Gina


Saoirse Ronan plays an Irish immigrant to America in this 1950s set movie. She’s torn between love of her former country and all of the new possibilities she finds in Brooklyn. —Jenny

Lady Macbeth

A young woman in 19th century rural England strikes out against her oppressive husband, stopping at nothing to get her way. —Emily

Much Ado About Nothing

There is nothing quite like a Kenneth Branagh Shakespeare adaptation and this one is stock full of famous English actors and lots of dancing and merriment. —Gina

Kumail Nanjiani and Zoe Kazan feature in this romantic comedy about a Pakistani comedian in love with an American graduate student. He bonds with her family while she’s in a coma.  —Jenny
