THREE BILLBOARDS OUTSIDE EBBING, MISSOURI is a darkly comic drama from Academy Award winner Martin McDonagh (IN BRUGES).

I, TONYA: Last Day

Todays Show Times:

Watch Trailer Director: Craig Gillespie
Writer(s): Steven Rogers
Cast: Margot Robbie, Bobby Cannavale, Sebastian Stan, McKenna Grace
Awards: GOLDEN GLOBE AWARDS - Best Supporting Actress

Based on the unbelievable, but true events, I, TONYA is a darkly comedic tale of American figure skater, Tonya Harding, and one of the most sensational scandals in sports history. Though Harding was the first American woman to complete a triple axel in competition, her legacy was forever defined by her association with an infamous, ill-conceived, and even more poorly executed attack on fellow Olympic competitor Nancy Kerrigan. Featuring an iconic turn by Margot Robbie as the fiery Harding, a mustachioed Sebastian Stan as her impetuous ex-husband Jeff Gillooly, a tour-de-force performance from Allison Janney as her acid-tongued mother, LaVona Golden, and an original screenplay by Steven Rogers, Craig Gillespie’s I, TONYA is an absurd, irreverent, and piercing portrayal of Harding’s life and career in all of its unchecked–and checkered–glory.

This film is nominated for 3 Academy Awards, including

  • Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role (Margot Robbie)
  • *WINNER* Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role (Allison Janney)
  • Best Achievement in Film Editing

The dark comedy approach to the story of Tonya Harding that you had no idea you needed as badly as you do.

Watch Trailer Director: Paul Thomas Anderson
Writer(s): Paul Thomas Anderson
Cast: Daniel Day-Lewis, Lesley Manville, Camilla Rutherford

Set in the glamour of 1950’s post-war London, renowned dressmaker Reynolds Woodcock [Daniel Day-Lewis] and his sister Cyril [Lesley Manville] are at the center of British fashion, dressing royalty, movie stars, heiresses, socialites, debutants and dames with the distinct style of The House of Woodcock. Women come and go through Woodcock’s life, providing the confirmed bachelor with inspiration and companionship, until he comes across a young, strong-willed woman, Alma [Vicky Krieps], who soon becomes a fixture in his life as his muse and lover. Once controlled and planned, he finds his carefully tailored life disrupted by love.

With his latest film, Paul Thomas Anderson paints an illuminating portrait both of an artist on a creative journey, and the women who keep his world running. Phantom Thread is Paul Thomas Anderson’s eighth movie, and his second collaboration with Daniel Day-Lewis.

'Phantom Thread' is at once an evocative period drama and a magical fable about lonely, solipsistic people finding solace in their mutual sense of alienation.

The Post was exciting because everyone onscreen and in the audience embraced the premise that the Post had news to tell that would turn the world on its ear. Sometimes at home watching TV I'm not sure what news is any longer.
