    The boundlessness of the juvenile imagination is often treated as whimsical and wonderful, but in this Austrian shocker the fanciful ideas rattling around inside children's skulls grow hideously dark. more...
  • The Gift
  • The Gift (R)

    This cagey suspense film was originally called "Weirdo," but the ultimate release title, bland as it might seem, is actually closer to the mark: the story is like one of those gift-wrapped boxes with another box inside, and another inside that one. more...

  • Good Kill (R)

    With such films as Gattaca (1997), S1m0ne (2002), and In Time (2011), writer-director Andrew Niccol has employed sci-fi premises to comment obliquely on contemporary issues; in this docudrama he provocatively depicts drone warfare as a real-life sci-fi horror. more...
  • The Good Dinosaur
  • The Good Dinosaur (PG)

    This computer-animated feature from Disney comes close to the wonder and terror of the studio's classic hand-painted animations; in its realization of such childhood fears as getting lost and a parent dying, it particularly recalls Bambi and Dumbo. more...

  • Grandma
  • Grandma (R)

    The pistol-packin' granny has been a comedy archetype for years, but it turns out to be the role of a lifetime for Lily Tomlin, whose tour de force performance lights up this well-written escapade by Paul Weitz (About a Boy). more...
  • Get On Up
  • Get On Up (PG-13)

    As an artist, an icon, and a person, James Brown is such an elusive quarry that no biopic writer could hope to do more than circle around him—which is exactly how brothers Jez and John-Henry Butterworth (Fair Game) approach the singer in this straightforward but highly entertaining feature. more...

  • A Girl at My Door

    A young but resolute policewoman (Doona Bae of Cloud Atlas), reassigned from Seoul to a remote fishing village, becomes the reluctant protector of a motherless schoolgirl picked on by the community, cursed by her drunken grandmother, and periodically beaten by her loutish father. more...
