    Based on a true story, Miles Teller and Jonah Hill lead the way in this dark comedy about two young men who begin to traffic guns to American allies in Afghanistan after signing a $300 million contract with the Pentagon. Hill steals the movie with his over the top love-to-hate-him character Efraim Diveroli.

    This movie follows Joaquin Phoenix and his relationship with his operating system. Seven years later and Her resonates more deeply than ever.

Stephanie recommends:

  1. 90 Day Fiancé – (Hulu)

    Bryan Cranston stars in this new thriller. A judge gets caught up on a cover-up to save a member of his family from the consequences of an auto accident.
