What we know

George Clooney stars as a report who’s taken hostage by a man who invested money on his advice, and regretted it. Julia Roberts is the producer of the show who has to respond to the man’s requests and keep them all alive.

What the critics say

  • “Just because of the stage it exists on, as a nationally-released studio feature from politically-conscious people, Money Monster feels like it should have the responsibility of being more than it actually is, and is brought down now by the fact that it’s not.” - CinemaBlend
  • “But this is not really a movie intended to stir up populist anger. It assumes — correctly in this election year — that the anger is out there already and that nobody really needs to be told not to trust Wall Street or cable television.” - New York Times

Love and Friendship

What we know

Whit Stillman directs this Jane Austen adaptation, where Kate Beckinsale plays a widow who goes to live at her in-laws’ estate and attempts to become a matchmaker for herself and her daughter.

What the critics say

  • “tillman has no evident interest in hating Lady Susan Vernon (Kate Beckinsale). The woman must be defeated, yes, for the sake of her daughter. But she’s attractive, clever, and admirably indefatigable. Above all, she offers a means of entry into a realm Stillman adores.” - Vulture 
  • “Beckinsale is the main attraction, delivering hilariously cutting lines with the casual cheeriness of someone who can’t even conceive of caring what others might think of her.” - AV Club

What we know

Mia Wasikowska and Johnny Depp star in the sequel to Tim Burton’s adaptation of the classic book.

What the critics say

  • The actors, except for Depp and Bonham Carter — for whom surrealism seems like a second home — merely go through the motions. As Lewis Carroll should have said: Efficiency is no substitute for enchantment.- Rolling Stone
  • - The Guardian
