DIRECTOR: Paul Feig

STARRING: Blake Lively, Anna Kendrick, Henry Golding, Linda Cardellini, Rupert Friend

Stephanie is a single mother with a parenting vlog who befriends Emily, a secretive upper-class woman who has a child at the same elementary school. When Emily goes missing, Stephanie takes it upon herself to investigate.

“As bright and bracing as an ice-cold gin martini with a lemon twist, and just as satisfying.” LA TIMES

“Sly and sweet with an acid finish, "A Simple Favor" is a female-friendship comedy with neo-noir ambitions.” NEW YORK TIMES

“Thanks to the stylish direction by Paul Feig, a whip-smart screenplay by Jessica Sharzer (adapting Darcey Bells’ novel) and performances that pop from the screen, A Simple Favor is a sharp-edged delight.” CHICAGO SUN-TIMES

ACTION | DRAMA

DIRECTOR: Karyn Kusama

STARRING: Nicole Kidman

Destroyer is a 2018 crime thriller film directed by Karyn Kusama, from a screenplay by Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi. It stars Nicole Kidman, Toby Kebbell, Tatiana Maslany, Scoot McNairy, Bradley Whitford, and Sebastian Stan.

LAPD detective Erin Bell, as a young cop, was placed undercover with a gang in the California desert with tragic results. When the leader of that gang re-emerges many years later, she must work her way back through the remaining members and into her own history with them to finally reckon with the demons that destroyed her past.

“Kidman has always been a chameleon, but in this case, she doesn’t merely change her color (or don a fake nose, à la “The Hours”); she disappears into an entirely new skin, rearranging her insides to fit the character’s tough hide.” VARIETY

“At the center of it all is Kidman, the indisputable heart of the film, whose all-in performance elevates Destroyer above a well-made cop drama and into something special. Kidman herself, clearly one of the finest actors of her generation, or anyone else's. Kidman has fully absorbed Erin inside her, as there doesn't seem to be a point where the character ends and the actress begins.” THE WRAP

ACTION | DRAMA

DIRECTOR: Steve McQueen

STARRING: Viola Davis, Michelle Rodriguez, Elizabeth Debicki

Set in contemporary Chicago, amidst a time of turmoil, four women with nothing in common except a debt left behind by their dead husbands' criminal activities, take fate into their own hands, and conspire to forge a future on their own terms.

“With a killer cast… director Steve McQueen turns four women and a heist into the powerhouse thriller of the year. You're in for a hell of a ride.” ROLLING STONE

“It offers everything adults used to love about cinema.” THE OBSERVER

“McQueen has made a big, pulpy crowd-pleaser, but he uses it to tell a story with real meaning. Widows is methodical in its imagery and gracefully written; it’s also a suspenseful blast, best seen with the biggest, most animated audience possible.” THE ATLANTIC
