Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds
Bright Lights is the intimate profile of Carrie Fisher and her equally famous mother, Debbie Reynolds. The “powerful portrait of love in action” (Entertainment Weekly) brings viewers into the homes and private lives of two of Hollywood’s most effusive and eclectic personalities. In addition to highlighting some delightful back-and-forth banter from the Beverly Hills compound they share (a brick walkway separates their houses), Carrie and Debbie offer candid insights into their careers and personal lives, for better and (sometimes) worse.

Rules Don’t Apply
It’s Hollywood, 1958. An aspiring young actress, songwriter, beauty queen and devout Baptist virgin, Marla Mabrey (Lily Collins), and her young, ambitious, deeply religious Methodist chauffeur, Frank Forbes (Alden Ehrenreich), both struggle with the absurd eccentricities of the wildly unpredictable billionaire they work for, Howard Hughes (Warren Beatty). Their attraction to each other not only puts their religious convictions to the test, but also defies Hughes’ #1 rule: no employee is allowed to have any relationship whatsoever with a contract actress. Hughes’ behavior draws them both deeper into his bizarre world, and their lives are changed. Written and directed by Beatty (with a story by Beatty and Bo Goldman), Rules Don’t Apply also stars Annette Bening, Matthew Broderick, Alec Baldwin, Candice Bergen, Ed Harris, Oliver Platt and Martin Sheen.
Bad Santa 2
Fueled by cheap whiskey and greed, Willie Soke (Academy Award-winner Billy Bob Thornton), teams up once again with his angry sidekick, Marcus (Tony Cox), to knock off a Chicago charity run by curvaceous Diane (Christina Hendricks). But the arrival of Willie’s horror story of a mother, Sunny (Academy Award-winner Kathy Bates), and “the kid” – Thurman Merman (Brett Kelly) – may upset their plan.
Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk
Academy Award winner Ang Lee (2012, Best Director, Life Of Pi ) brings his extraordinary vision to Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, based on the widely-acclaimed, bestselling novel.
