Award-winning actress Frances McDormand delivers a powerful performance in the comedy-drama Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, hailed as one of the year’s best films. Fellow award nominees Woody Harrelson and Sam Rockwell also star. Another drama with comedic life twists is Lady Bird, with an award winning performance by Saoirse Ronan.

The moms and dads of comedy are back – with their parents. Mila Kunis and Kristen Bell reunite in A Bad Moms Christmas to rebel against the challenges and expectations of a perfect Christmas as well as against their own mothers. Brad (Will Ferrell) and Dusty (Mark Wahlberg) are joined by their dads in Daddy’s Home 2.

On a lighter note, Basmati Blues, starring Brie Larson and Donald Sutherland, is about a well-intentioned scientist (Larson) who is sent to India to sell genetically modified rice. While there she gets caught up in a scheme to cheat local farmers and falls in love with the one farmer who can save them all. The Female Brain examines what makes a woman swipe right for Mr. Wrong.
