As romance blooms between the two, Elio gains a new understanding of who he is.
A sumptuous romance in the sun-drenched Italian countryside, CALL ME BY YOUR NAME is the final chapter in director Luca Guadagnino’s “Desire” trilogy, following up on his similarly acclaimed I AM LOVE and A BIGGER SPLASH.

Featuring captivating performances by Armie Hammer (THE SOCIAL NETWORK), Michael Stuhlbarg (A SERIOUS MAN), and breakout lead Chalamet, CALL ME BY YOUR NAME explores first love and self-discovery with disarming honesty. From the depths of heartbreak to the heights of joy, it’s a story of coming out and coming of age that critics and audiences can’t help but fall in love with.
Twelve-year-old Miguel dreams of strumming his guitar to stardom like his hero, legendary musician Ernesto de la Cruz. But his family has banned music for generations, for reasons long forgotten.

A dazzling whirlwind of music and imagination for all ages, COCO is a wild and vibrant journey into life beyond death, and the music that drives life.
After finally reaching the common ground in their first go-round, stepdad Brad Whitaker (Will Ferrell) and dad Dusty Mayron (Mark Wahlberg) are back and determined to keep the family peace in DADDY’S HOME 2.
That’s easier said than done once their own dads show up at Christmastime. Dusty’s father, old school Kurt (Mel Gibson), and Brad’s sensitive poppa, Jonah (John Lithgow), aren’t exactly a match made in male bonding heaven. Adding to the mix for further potential domestic disaster is the presence of macho man Roger (John Cena), biological father to Dusty’s own stepson.
DADDY’S HOME director Sean Anders (co-writer of WE’RE THE MILLERS and HOT TUB TIME MACHINE) returns for the sequel along with the original’s co-writer John Morris. Also back are co-stars Linda Cardellini and Scarlett Estevez as ever-supportive spouses Sara Whitaker and Megan Mayron, and comic Hannibal Burress as dependable best bud Griff.
For millennia Asgard has stood tall, the impenetrable home of the gods. Until now. This November, Asgard will fall.
Thor (Chris Hemsworth, BLACK HAT), god of thunder and mighty Avenger, must team up with his diabolical brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston, KONG: SKULL ISLAND) to return their deposed father, Odin (Anthony Hopkins, TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT), to the throne of Asgard.
But when they get lost in the cosmos, their home is left defenseless before the marauding might of Hela (Cate Blanchett, CAROL), goddess of the underworld, who seeks nothing less than the utter destruction of the Norse gods. Thor must battle his way past fellow Avenger the Incredible Hulk (Mark Ruffalo, YOU CAN COUNT ON ME) in an alien gladiator arena overseen by none other than Jeff Goldblum (JURASSIC PARK) as the Grandmaster. And that’s the easy part.
Directed by Taika Waititi (WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS), THOR: RAGNAROK is a rocking and rolling adventure across the spaceways, filled with fun and excitement, and with stakes that are higher than the Marvel Cinematic Universe has ever seen before. Heavily influenced by comics legend Jack Kirby, THOR: RAGNAROK is a blast of imagination that will take you from one end of the universe to the other with a huge smile on your face.
Thirty years ago, Larry “Doc” Shepherd (Steve Carell) served in Vietnam alongside Sal (Bryan Cranston) and Mueller (Laurence Fishburne), with the three men forming friendships for life. Now, when his son is killed in action in Iraq, Doc gets the band back together to help him with the heart-rending funeral.
LAST FLAG FLYING is both an adaptation of Darryl Ponicsan’s 2005 novel and a “spiritual sequel” to Hal Ashby’s 1973 counterculture classic THE LAST DETAIL, with Steve Carell, Bryan Cranston, and Laurence Fishburne taking over the roles originated by Randy Quaid, Jack Nicholson, and Otis Young. Celebrated director Richard Linklater (BOYHOOD, DAZED & CONFUSED, the BEFORE trilogy) brings the film to life with his trademark subtlety and attention to character, weaving a heartfelt and subversive tale of friendship and family.
Fresh from an opening-night appearance at the New York Film Festival, LAST FLAG FLYING follows up on a cult classic, and stands on its own as a funny, thoughtful road movie with a stellar cast and something to say.
Christine “Lady Bird” McPherson (Saoirse Ronan, HANNA, BROOKLYN) is approaching the end of high school. 9/11 just shook the world, and her dad has lost his job, forcing her mother (Laurie Metcalf, ROSEANNE) to hold the family down. Desperate to escape her Northern California childhood, but too immature to make a decision, Lady Bird deploys punk-rock rebellion against everyone in her life, struggling to figure out where to go next - and who to be.
Greta Gerwig has been delighting the indie film scene in movies like FRANCES HA and MISTRESS AMERICA for over a decade. With LADY BIRD, she makes her solo writing and directing debut, bringing her sardonic, observational style - and more than a few of her own experiences - to a sophisticated and relatable mother-daughter story that speaks to multiple generations.
Both an intimate character piece and a universal statement, LADY BIRD is a coming-of-age story about all the joy, heartache, and naive selfishness of youth. The Toronto International Film Festival got on its feet for LADY BIRD’s premiere, and critics agree: it's a hilarious and genuine crowd-pleaser with brains and heart.
