The Sense of an Ending - Rated PG-13; Drama; 1h 48m; 2017

Stars: Jim Broadbent, Charlotte Rampling, Harriet Walter

Adapted from a brief but emotionally potent 2011 novel by Julian Barnes. Flashbacks arrive in blink-and-you-miss-them bursts that then expand to explain the significance of a look or a gesture; memory becomes a form of time travel, putting Tony (Jim Broadbent) inside his own recollections, taking the place of his young self. Freya Mavor and Charlotte Rampling are hauntingly enigmatic and ravishing as his former love, young and old.

Starring: Lewis MacDougall, Sigourney Weaver, Felicity Jones, Liam Neeson  

A boy seeks the help of a tree monster to cope with his single mother's terminal illness. The movie is memorable for its stunning and inventive imagery, especially when the tree-monster’s tales spring to life as little works of art set in motion. Those tales provide a beautiful respite from the grim reality of the boy's’s life, both for him and for the audience
