STAR WARS: EPISODE VIII: THE LAST JEDI
Jedi Master (Mark Hamill) unwillingly attempts to guide young hopeful Rey (Daisy Ridley) in the ways of the force, while Leia, former princess turned general (Carrie Fisher in a final film) rallies to lead what is left of the Resistance and its leader, Captain Poe (Oscar Isaac) away from the ruthless tyrannical grip of the First Order. Packed with invention, wit and action, this critically acclaimed film was nominated for four Oscars, including Best Original Score and Best Visual Effects. (2017), PG-13, 152 minutes.

SOMETHING THE LORD MADE
This Emmy-winning HBO film based on a true story follows white surgeon Alfred Blalock (Alan Rickman) and his black assistant, Vivien Thomas (Mos Def), who teamed in the 1940s to develop a procedure to save children suffering from a heart defect. But Thomas’s status as a second-class citizen prevented him from getting recognition, as Blalock took all the credit. Their close, respectful relationship was complicated by the social realities of the time. Engrossing and moving. (2004), NR, 102 minutes.
