PROMISING YOUNG WOMAN
2020, Focus Features, 113 min, UK/USA, Dir: Emerald Fennell

From groundbreaking director Emerald Fennell (KILLING EVE) comes a delicious new take on revenge. Everyone said Cassie (Carey Mulligan) was a promising young woman ... until a mysterious event abruptly derailed her future. But nothing in Cassie’s life is what it appears to be: she’s wickedly smart, tantalizingly cunning and she’s living a secret double life by night. Now, an unexpected encounter is about to give Cassie a chance to right the wrongs of the past in this thrilling and wildly entertaining story.


THE LEGO MOVIE
2014, Warner Bros., 100 min, USA, Dir: Phil Lord, Christopher Miller

Everything is awesome about the hit computer animated family adventure, which turns what could have been a feature-length toy commercial on its head to become a celebration of childhood creativity. An ordinary construction worker named Emmet (Chris Pratt) is mistaken for “the Special,” chosen to save the LEGO universe from the evil plans of Lord Business (Will Ferrell). The star-studded voice cast includes Morgan Freeman, Liam Neeson and Elizabeth Banks. “Pop-culture jokes ricochet off the heads of younger viewers to tickle the world-weary adults in the audience, with just enough sentimental goo applied at the end to unite the generations.” - A.O. Scott, The New York Times.
