Maleficent

From Disney comes “Maleficent”—the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the 1959 classic “Sleeping Beauty.” A beautiful, pure-hearted young woman, Maleficent has an idyllic life growing up in a peaceable forest kingdom, until one day when an invading army threatens the harmony of the land. Maleficent rises to be the land’s fiercest protector, but she ultimately suffers a ruthless betrayal—an act that begins to turn her pure heart to stone. Bent on revenge, Maleficent faces an epic battle with the invading king’s successor and, as a result, places a curse upon his newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Maleficent realizes that Aurora holds the key to peace in the kingdom—and perhaps to Maleficent’s true happiness as well.

Lucky Them

Ellie Klug (Toni Collette) has one last chance to prove her value to her aging music magazine, Stax.

Ellie and Matt have a history. Joined on the road by well-meaning but music-hating documentarian Charlie (Thomas Haden Church), Ellie delves into her past and quickly discovers that hype and mythology have not soothed the pain of her own experiences. Toni Collette anchors a pitch perfect cast that includes Thomas Haden Church, Oliver Platt, and Ryan Eggold in an insightful story about the natural pitfalls of memory, love, sex, and—most dangerous of all—dating a legend.
