  4. The Good Dinosaur. A kids movie about dinosaurs.
  5. Room. It’s the story of a kidnapped woman, staring Brie Larson, and her 5-year-old son, held in captivity in a backyard shed. She is desperate to escape, but the situation seems hopeless, until...
  6. Brooklyn.  In the 1950s, shy Irish immigrant Eilis, played by the very hot Saoirse Ronan is alone in New York. Then, she falls for a nice, Italian boy in Brooklyn.
