Call Me by Your Name

Darkest Hour

Academy Award nominee Gary Oldman plays newly-appointed British Prime Minister Winston Churchill as he deals with the pressure during pivotal weeks in World War II.


This World War II epic focuses on the experiences of 400,000 Allied soldiers in the Battle of Dunkirk as they try to escape when the German army has them surrounded.

Get Out

On the surface, this film is about the a young African American male who visits his white girlfriend's family. But this horror film turns out to be much more as disturbing secrets are revealed.

Lady Bird

This moving coming-of-age story focuses on the relationship between a strong-willed teenager and her anxious mother.

Phantom Thread

Set in London in the 1950s, Phantom Thread is about a middle-aged couturier who falls for a young waitress. It explores what people in relationships expect of each other, what they give and what they take.

The Post

This true-life story showcases the debate between Washington Post owner Kay Graham and executive editor Ben Bradlee, about whether to publish the secret, political Pentagon Papers. It takes place in 1971 but is still highly relevant today.

The Shape of Water

Guillermo del Toro's latest film involves a mute janitor who falls in love with a most-unlikely creature from the Amazon while working in a top-secret lab during the Cold War.

Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri

After the rape and murder of her teenage daughter, Mildred Hayes is so angry that the case has not been solved that she does puts up three billboards to shame the local police. While tensions escalate, this determined mother will not back down.

    Some of my favorite movies that are nominated this year are Darkest Hour, Dunkirk, Get Out (funny) and last years Moonlight. I love watching the Oscars each year. Thank you for this chance. #SheSpeaksOscar

    This year's crop is really great, and I loved The Post, The Shape of Water, and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri , but I have to say that my favorite is Get Out. It worked on so many levels and reinvigorated the whole horror genre.
