Almost hypnotic in its unhurried and unvarnished study of one middle-aged Japanese man and the way his perspective of life changes, the movie is deserving of the universal praise it has received.

MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Profanity, Sexual Content, Adult Themes)
Genre: Drama/Romance
Director: Justin Baldoni

The problem isn’t the emotional manipulation but the clumsy way in which the movie orchestrates its third act.

MPAA Rating: "NR" (Violence)
Genre: Drama
Director: Gillo Pontecorvo

MPAA Rating: "NR" (Violence, Profanity, Instances of Race-Related Bigotry)
Genre: Drama/Thriller

The honesty with which Jewison and his cast address issues of race and bigotry gives the movie more power than the underlying crime story would suggest.

MPAA Rating: "R" (Sexual Content, Nudity, Profanity, Drugs)
Genre: Drama

Simply directed but rich in detail, "Gloria Bell" has no deeper themes or motives beyond documenting a slice of the main character’s life.

MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Profanity, Adult Themes)
Genre: Drama
Director: Sean Hanish
Cast: Michelle Monaghan, Leem Lubandy, Common, ...

Despite the faint whiff of sanctimoniousness that occasionally emanates from this well-meaning motion picture, "Saint Judy" generally holds its own as a solid courtroom drama.

MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Violence, Profanity, Sexual Content)
Genre: Drama/Comedy
Director: Stephen Merchant
Cast: Florence Pugh, Lena Heady, Nick Frost, ...

Pugh’s performance is the best thing about the movie but the story, despite Merchant’s comedic flourishes, feels stale at times.

MPAA Rating: "R" (Sexual Content, Profanity, Nudity)
Genre: Drama
Director: Emma Forrest

The screenwriter’s guiding hand is too obviously present and becomes an impediment to any appreciation of the characters’ evolutions.

MPAA Rating: "G"
Genre: Drama
Director: Fred Zinnemann
