This Month’s Highlights

The Death of Stalin

A dazzlingly sharp satire from Armando Iannucci, the creator of Veep, The Death of Stalin — much like the title implies — takes place immediately after the death of Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin, and chronicles the manic power struggle that took place as various bureaucrats and sycophants jockeyed to maintain their status in the leadership vacuum. Strangely relevant to our current political realities and darkly hilarious, The Death of Stalin is a whip-smart satire with a stacked cast, don’t miss it. Arrives December 15.

When Harry Met Sally

The end of the year is the perfect time for an annual re-watch of When Harry Met Sally, a strong contender for one of the best romantic comedies ever made. Can men and women be friends? Can you have great sex with a Sheldon? Did the holidays even happen if you haven’t watched this movie? Katz’s Deli has never been the same, and neither have we. Arrives December 1.
