Check out our weekly picks of what you can now buy or rent in June!
Our pick of the week: Thoroughbreds (available to rent or buy)
Indie movie fans won't want to miss the dry, clever and dark film Thoroughbreds, which stars Olivia Cooke (Me and Earl and the Dying Girl) as Amanda and Anya Taylor-Joy as Lily (The Witch), two suburban teens who plot to kill Lily's overbearing father. They hire a drug dealer played by Anton Yelchin in his final film role to do the deed.
Our pick of the week: Love, Simon (available to rent or buy)
One of the most notable films of this year, Love, Simon is the first film produced by a major Hollywood studio to feature a gay protagonist. The film follows Simon (Nick Robinson), a gay teenager who is in the closet and who struggles with keeping this secret from his friends and family. Things start to change for Simon when he falls for an anonymous student from his high school who he begins emailing when "Blue" posts on a popular blog that he is gay. This film is funny, smart, and groundbreaking as it will definitely open doors for more mainstream LGBT narratives.
This week's Movie for a Loonie: War for the Planet of the Apes
Our pick of the week: Blockers (available to buy)
One of the most underrated comedies of this year is Blockers, which stars Leslie Mann, Ike Barinholtz and John Cena as three parents who try to prevent their children from losing their virginity on prom night. This movie gives us a different side to the typical teen prom story, and its clever perspective made it one of the funniest movies we've seen in 2018.
This week's Movie for a Loonie: Goodbye Christopher Robin
Our pick of the week: Isle of Dogs (available to buy)
Wes Anderson has perfected the art of stop-motion animation. He did it once with Fantastic Mr. Fox, and hits the mark again with his dark comedy Isle of Dogs. The film takes place in Japan where dog flu has resulted in all dogs being banned and sent to a remote island to die. A young boy whose dog was taken away goes to this island to try and find him, and gets the help of a group of dogs voiced by Bryan Cranston, Edward Norton, Bill Murray. Jeff Goldblum and Bob Balaban.
Available to rent: Tyler Perry's Acrimony
Movie for a Loonie: Kingsman: The Golden Circle
