MOVIE NIGHT at Home!
★★★✩✩ NR On the day of her boyfriend’s surprise birthday party, a woman ( Broad City’s Abbi Jacobson) ends up driving her heroin-addicted brother (Dave Franco) in search of a detox center. The two leads (both more known for their comedic acting) shine in a searing drama that demonstrates the hope and frustration of loving an addict. AVAILABLE NOW ON: Netflix
★★★✩✩ PG-13 This preposterous yet propulsive thriller follows an ex-cop-turned-insurance salesman (Liam Neeson) who loses his job. And his commute home is even worse: A stranger (Vera Farmiga) on his train forces him to help identify a mystery passenger holding evidence — or else! It’s an enjoyably off-the-rails ride. AVAILABLE APRIL 17 ON: DVD, Blu-ray, itunes
★★★★✩ PG-13 Washington Post publisher Katharine Graham (Meryl Streep) and Post executive editor Ben Bradlee (Tom Hanks) battle the government for the right to publish the Pentagon Papers. A best picture Oscar nominee, director Steven Spielberg’s rabble-rousing newsroom drama makes journalism great again — and functions as a prequel to All The President’s Men. AVAILABLE APRIL 17 ON: DVD, Blu-ray, itunes
