A charismatic New York City jeweler always on the lookout for the next big score makes a series of high-stakes bets that could lead to the windfall of a lifetime. Howard must perform a precarious high-wire act, balancing business, family, and encroaching adversaries on all sides in his relentless pursuit of the ultimate win.
The extraordinary tale of Harriet Tubman's escape from slavery and transformation into one of America's greatest heroes, whose courage, ingenuity, and tenacity freed hundreds of slaves and changed the course of history.
American car designer Carroll Shelby and driver Ken Miles battle corporate interference, the laws of physics and their own personal demons to build a revolutionary race car for Ford and challenge Ferrari at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1966.
You gotta expect Hollywood to come out and take the opportunity to slash a conservative network with its rampant sexy image and a headline sexual harassment scandal toppling one of the most powerful media control freaks in the TV industry, Roger Ailes. Tinseltown came out with a credible product, with the sure-footedness of Jay Roach's slillful direction . Nichole Kidman's performance is her strongest in quite some time, while Charlize Theron's portrayal of Megyn Kelly was scarily spot on.
The wife took my early-20's daughter who is beginning a career in NYC to the showing. It certainly opened her eyes to the predatory nature of certain horny higher ups. The movie should be must viewing for those vulnerable females entering the workforce. I'll up my star rating when Hollywood does a sequel on Harvey Weinstein as well as NBC network, with the central figure Matt Lauer front and center. Can't wait to see that.
