You may remember this film from when I hit up Sundance earlier this year. Now it is finally coming to theaters. Telling the story of Lizzie Borden, the film focuses on how the boring, high society house is flipped upside down when the daughter finds a friend in the housekeeper and then begins to plot to take down the patriarch of the clan. There is a lot of romance, too, so be ready.

White Boy Rick

Another flick based on a true story. This one sets us back in the 1980s in the middle of the War on Drugs despite the crack epidemic in the country. It tells the story of a father and his son, and how his life goes from becoming an undercover police informant to an actual drug dealer, and eventually ending up in jail for life. Not the happiest results but will leave you emotionally moved all the same.
