All the Money in the World – Dec 22
The true story of John Getty, and his daughter’s attempt to persuade him to pay a ransom for her kidnapped son. It already looked amazing, but since Kevin Spacey was rightfully replaced, all the more reason to see it.

The Post – Dec 22
If anyone can make a thrilling film about the right to a free press, it’s Spielberg. This film details the Washington Post’s leak of the Pentagon Papers, the government’s cover up, and the suffocation of the news media. During this Trump administration, the timing for this story is perfect… plus, Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep co-star in it.

Molly’s Game – Dec 25
Directing for the first time, iconic screenwriter Aron Sorkin (Moneyball, Social Network) is garnering critical acclaim for his take on the true story of Olympic skier turned high stakes celebrity poker game runner and FBI target, Molly Bloom (Jessica Chasten).

Phantom Thread – Dec 25
Set in 1950s London, Phantom Thread is about a dressmaker who falls in love. Written and directed by Paul Thomas Anderson (Boogie Nights) and starring Daniel Day Lewis, both look to create magic again after collaborating on There Will Be Blood. Lewis is arguably the greatest actor of all time, and he’s said this will be his last role before retiring.
