This just in…

Believe it or not, women used to be paid less than men! What? They still are? Reason enough to relive a moment in feminism. MADE IN DAGENHAM tells the story of some rather determined women who worked for Ford in the UK in 1968. With Sally Hawkins. A “funny, touching and vital salute to women in the work force.” — Peter Travers, ROLLING STONE

Or if you prefer, roll back to the late ’90s and experience the emotional shortcomings of a Viagra salesman and his girlfriend (“Don’t call me your girlfriend!”). Jake Gyllenhaal is the saleman and Anne Hathaway his confused girlfriend in Edward Zwick‘s LOVE & OTHER DRUGS. “A love story that is actually worth falling for.” — Betsy Sharkey, LA TIMES

And more…

Global warming actually exists. We’re all in agreement now, yes? But how much of a problem is it, really? The documentary COOL IT offers a platform to self-professed “skeptical environmentalist” Bjorn Lomborg. “A stimulating and nerdalicious ride.” — Andrew O’Hehir, SALON

Skeptical documentary filmmaker Andrew Jarecki tries his hand at fiction in the based-on-a-real-story ALL GOOD THINGS, about the unsolved 1982 disappearance of Kristie Durst, wife of wealthy and secretive New Yorker Robert Durst. Kirsten Dunst and Ryan Gosling star.  A “provocative movie that will keep you up nights.” — Peter Travers, ROLLING STONE
