Awards season is almost upon us, which means—hallelujah!—theaters are finally full of movies you actually want to see. (No offense to all the awkward films no one bothered seeing this summer, we still love you!)
The Oscars are much more enjoyable when you've actually watched the nominated contenders, so here's a handy list of films worth the 💸 to see on the big screen.More
20th Century Women is the semi-autobiographical story of director Mike Mills' young adulthood, and has a completely killer cast complete with Annette Bening, Elle Fanning, and Greta Gerwig. The film is a win for feminists, and tells the story of the profound influence three women of varying ages have on a boy coming-of-age. This is the type of movie Hollywood should be making more of.
Release date: December 25, 2016.
It's almost impossible to write about Loving without making a pun about loving it, but we'll try. The Jeff Nichols directed film follows an interracial couple from small down Virginia as they deal with prejudice and racism. It's a gorgeous movie, but also an important reminder that interracial couples are still judged in 2016. Hopefully, Loving will serve to open hearts and broaden minds.
Release date: Already out. See it before it leaves!
