The movie follows Molly Bloom, a former Olympic class skier who runs an exclusive poker empire for celebrities, business tycoons, and the mob.

Also, she has plenty of chemistry with Idris Elba, playing her lawyer. Molly’s Game is overall one of the more purely enjoyable dramas of the past couple of years.
The Half of It
The Half of It, inspired by Cyrano de Bergerac, is the ultimate small-town flick with a big heart. The movie follows Ellie Chu, a less-than-popular girl from the tiny town of Squahamish, New York. Chu is known for making pocket money by writing homework papers for her classmates. One day, a popular jock, Paul Munsky, asks her to write a love letter to Aster Flores, another girl at their school. What Munksy doesn’t know is that Chu is secretly in love with Flores too. Although there are plenty of coming of age Netflix original films, few have the genuine charm and nuance that The Half of It has plenty of. The Half of It joins the roster of great teen coming of age Netflix original movies.
Marriage Story follows the lives of Charlie and Nicole as they go through an increasingly bitter, coast to coast divorce while raising their only child. The film carefully splits its time between both Charlie and Nicole, making them feel fully three dimensional, and making their actions completely understandable even when they act cruelly towards each other, with their respective lawyers. Marriage Story is heartbreaking, vital, and one of the best acted films of the year.
Always Be My Maybe
Reunited after 15 years, famous chef Sasha and hometown musician Marcus feel the old sparks of attraction but struggle to adapt to each other’s worlds. Always Be My Maybe follows chef Sasha who, after a breakup, begins feeling old sparks of attraction with a childhood friend after seeing him for the first time in fifteen years. The movie is genuinely charming, thanks to the performances from Wong and Park. Always Be My Maybe is perfect if you are in the mood for a solid and charming romantic comedy.
After spearheading an ill-fated bank robbery, a man must get his mentally challenged younger brother out of jail. At the same time, he needs to elude his own capture. Good Time follows Connie, a would-be bank robber, as he attempts to get enough money to get his developmentally disabled brother Nick out on parole. His attempts lead him all over New York City as circumstances get progressively more dangerous for both Connie and Nick. Good Time is yet another great film by Safdie brothers, who are proving to be two of the best directors working right now.
In this movie “Inside Man“, a detective matches wits with a thief who’s always one step ahead of the cops and when a loose-cannon negotiator arrives, things spin out of control. This is definitely one of Spike Lee’s most crowd pleasing blockbusters to date. The heist thriller centers on police detective Keith (Denzel Washington), robber Dalton (Clive Owen), and Manhattan power broker Madeleine (Jodie Foster). They all become involved with an elaborate Wall Street heist over the course of a day. Inside Man is a cinematic delight that shows that even Spike Lee’s lower-stakes fare can still pack a punch.
