MANCHESTER BY THE SEA (USA, R) - After the death of his older brother, Lee is responsible for raising his 16-year-old nephew.

NOCTURNAL ANIMALS (USA, R) - Susan divorced her husband ages ago, but out of the blue he provides her with a copy of his manuscript and requests feedback.

BAD SANTA 2 (USA, R) - The scuzzy Christmas duo are back in the act, only this time they've got a bad mom to help them. And when I say bad mom, I mean she's a criminal and no good for her kid. However, it does make for somewhat dumb and passable comedy.
DIRECTED BY: Mark Waters
