This Month’s Highlights

Wonder Woman

How many times have you watched this movie since it came out? Possibly not enough! There’s a lot we could say about this always-enjoyable D.C. superhero flick: Gal Gadot’s strong lead performance, Robin Wright’s steely-as-ever turn as one of the great movie aunties, Chris Pine’s all-in enthusiasm in the damsel-in-distress role. Those are all great, yes, but more than anything, we’ll recommend the very cute Gadot-Pine boat scene above. Apologies to The Finest Hours, but this is the “Chris Pine on a Boat” drama we really want. Leaving April 27.

Phantom Thread

This absurdly good P.T. Anderson movie about an obsessive clothing designer is, theoretically, Daniel Day-Lewis’s last movie ever. That’s a shame, because after watching it, you’ll want an entire franchise based on the life and times of Reynolds Woodcock. Remember when Day-Lewis asks Vicky Krieps, “Are you a special agent sent here to ruin my evening, and possibly my entire life?” Just imagine how much more withering their dinner conversations would have become later in life! Leaving April 30.
