Director: Chinonye Chukwu
Cast: Danielle Deadwyler, Jalyn Hall, Whoopi Goldberg, Sean Patrick Thomas, John Douglas Thompson, Frankie Faison, Tosin Cole, Haley Bennett
Movie-going is not a civics assignment but "Till" is a sufficiently powerful motion picture that it offers more than a history lesson.

MPAA Rating: "R" (Profanity, Nudity)
Director: Todd Field
Cast: Cate Blanchett, Noemie Merlant, Nina Hoss, Sophie Kauer, Julian Glover, Allan Corduner, Mark Strong
Cate Blanchett’s inhabitation of Lydia is complete and the movie’s presentation of her life is exacting in every detail; the result is nothing short of mesmerizing.

MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Profanity)
Director: Ol Parker
Cast: George Clooney, Julia Roberts, Kaitlyn Dever, Maxime Bouttier, Billie Lourd, Lucas Bravo
Although this features high wattage stars, it represents a curiously anachronistic attempt at escapist fare.

MPAA Rating: "R" (Profanity, Sexual Content)
Director: Ruben Ostlund
Cast: Harris Dickinson, Charlbi Dean, Vicki Berlin, Dolly De Leon, Woody Harrelson, Zlatko Buric, Sunnyi Melles, Henrik Dorsin
Although there’s probably never a minute that goes by without some kind of barb being tossed, Ostlund reserves his sharpest daggers for illustrating how utterly out-of-touch the ultra-rich are.

MPAA Rating: "R" (Nudity, Sexual Content, Violence, Profanity)
Director: George Miller
Cast: Idris Elba, Tilda Swinton, Aamito Lagum, Burcu Golgedar, Pia Thunderbolt
Suffused with hypnotic visuals and anchored by a tremendous performance by Idris Elba, the movie takes its cues from the fantasy workings of Guillermo del Toro and is only occasionally found wanting.

MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Violence, Profanity, Brief Nudity)
Director: Taika Waititi

Director: Joseph Kosinski
Cast: Tom Cruise, Jean Louisa Kelly, Glen Powell, Danny Ramirez, Jay Ellis, Lewis Pullman, Monica Barbaro, Charles Parnell, Jon Hamm, Bashir Salahuddin, Jennifer Connelly, Miles Teller, Val Kilmer, Ed Harris
Although relying on some of the alchemy that made the formula successful in 1986, the film’s awareness of cultural shifts makes for a more complete cinematic experience.
