The Little Hours
Alison Brie, Aubrey Plaza and Kate Micucci are naughty nuns in oddball literary adaptation
The Little Hours is a send-up of the absurd idea of sin and that human beings can actually give up their sins of the flesh, but Jeff Baena’s attentions are focused on the fact that cursing, drunken, fornicating nuns are funny as hell.

Edgar Wright takes an eclectic cast on a high-speed joyride with the stereo cranked to 11

Sentimental and scenic, trilogy-ending sports flick cruises to the finish line
Cars 3 is no ironclad Pixar classic but it is a well made film that delivers more or less the same sentimental moral as the original and Larry the Cable Guy is hardly in this one at all.

My Cousin Rachel
Love, marriage and maybe murder in merry olde England
Between My Cousin Rachel's intriguing opening and its punchy ending, the nuanced script and subtle direction successfully elevate du Maurier’s self-consciously old-fashioned source material.
