BUT AC­TUAL HU­MANS ARE DO­ING SOME AWE­SOME STUFF, TOO:

Kay Can­non, Block­ers

The writer of the Pitch Per­fect movies—not to men­tion the trag­i­cally un­der­rated Net­flix se­ries Girl­boss—drops her lat­est “hell yes, women are hi­lar­i­ous” flick. Block­ers is about three par­ents try­ing to pre­vent their kids from hav­ing sex on prom night. Don’t worry, it’s smarter than it sounds. Kind of.

Lor­rie Moore, See What Can Be Done: Es­says, Crit­i­cism, and Com­men­tary

Brought to­gether for the first time, the es­says in this non-fic­tion col­lec­tion from one of Amer­ica’s bright­est lit­er­ary lights dis­cuss nov­els (nat­u­rally), tele­vi­sion, the en­vi­ron­ment and the ab­sur­dity of pol­i­tics. Some fic­tion writ­ers should stick with fic­tion. Moore is very wel­come here.

Di­ablo Cody, Tully

The Os­car-win­ning writer teams up with di­rec­tor Ja­son Reit­man (for the third time) for an­other film about the com­pli­ca­tions of par­ent­hood. Char­l­ize Theron (in non-glam­our mode) bonds with her nanny, who is played by upand-com­ing Cana­dian ac­tress Macken­zie Davis. It’s like a se­quel to Juno—only, not at all.
