  • A Man Called Ove
  • A Man Called Ove (PG-13)

    Two of the most hackneyed scenes ever are the comically interrupted suicide attempt and the lonely soliloquy addressed to a dead spouse's headstone; the title character (Rolf Lassgård) gets them both, multiple times, in this slow and obvious Swedish drama. more...
  • Other People
  • Other People (NR)

    I hate the term dramedy—it discounts the potential for humor in any drama, and movies designated as dramedies typically follow the rigid Terms of Endearment template of laughs in the first half, tears in the second. more...
  • Morris From America
  • Morris From America (R)

    Morris is a 13-year-old black kid transplanted from New York to Heidelberg, Germany, where he struggles to learn the language, endures the racist jokes of his ignorant classmates, and yearns hopelessly for the love of a pale, blond heartbreaker two years ahead of him. more...
  • Captain Fantastic (R)

    This odd duck by writer-director Matt Ross plays like a survivalist's remake of The Seven Little Foys (1955), that old Bob Hope movie about a widowed vaudevillian struggling to care for his brood of wacky, free-spirited children. more...
  • Dough (NR)

    This John Goldschmidt-directed comedy follows the high jinks of an old Jewish baker and his Muslim apprentice after the boy's marijuana stash falls into the dough. more...
  • Elvis & Nixon (R)

    Elvis & Nixon chronicles the day in December 1970, treasured by absurdists and pop-culture fanatics the world over, when Elvis Presley got himself invited to the Oval Office to talk with President Richard Nixon. more...
  • Fan (NR)

    A young man's worship of a movie actor turns dangerously obsessive when his plan to meet the star doesn't go according to plan. more...

  • The Lady in the Van
  • The Lady in the Van (PG-13)

    The homeless, mentally ill woman who spent 15 years camping in the driveway of playwright Alan Bennett has given him material for a short story, a play (staged in the West End and adapted by BBC Radio), and now a film, starring Maggie Smith in a role that seems tailor-made for her drollery. more...
  • From Vegas to Macau III (NR)

    In Wong Jing and Andrew Lau's Chinese action film, a manattending his daughter's wedding receives a phone call that someone is trying to kill him. more...
  • Hello, My Name Is Doris
  • Hello, My Name Is Doris (R)

    After more than a decade doing TV, writer-director Michael Showalter (The Baxter, Wet Hot American Summer) returns with another of his wacky but endearingly sweet rom-coms, this one about a May-December office crush. more...
  • A Hologram for the King
  • A Hologram for the King (R)

    Tom Hanks stars as a washed-up salesman (his dwindling fortunes in the U.S. are dramatized in an awkward parody of the Talking Heads' "Once in a Lifetime") who journeys to Saudi Arabia and takes up residence in the King Abdullah Economic City, an unfinished commercial and residential development near Jeddah, to sell a new teleconference system to the king. more...
  • Florence Foster Jenkins
  • Florence Foster Jenkins (PG-13)

    The story of Florence Foster Jenkins, a New York socialite who became known as the world's worst soprano, has been told many times before—and beautifully, in the French drama Marguerite (2015)—but this is the version that will stick, because it stars Meryl Streep. more...
