Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard play two (very stylish) World War II spies fighting the Nazis in this Casablanca-esque—and much buzzed-about—film.
Bow down to Natalie Portman. In this film, she steps into the shoes of Jackie Kennedy in the days after her husband was shot.
Halle Berry stars in this thriller about a mom who’ll stop at nothing to save her son after he’s kidnapped at the playground. (The takeaway based on the terrifying trailer: Never take your eyes off your kids.)

This film follows Katherine Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), a female African-American NASA mathematician who changed the 1962 Space Race. NBD.
Ben Affleck directs and stars in this Prohibition-era film about gangster-run speakeasies and the man (Affleck) who’ll do anything—even piss off a big-deal crime boss—to take control.
An almost unrecognizable Matthew McConaughey stars in this crime adventure film as a prospector who discovers an enormous amount of gold in Indonesia, tipping off the FBI. Based on a true story.
The August Wilson play about a man trying to raise his family while grappling with 1950s race relations hits the big screen with an all-star cast (ahem, Denzel Washington and Viola Davis).
A single mom (Annette Bening) raising her son in 1970s California enlists the help of two younger—and kinda provocative—women to help with his upbringing.
