The Boy Downstairs

GirlsZosia Mamet stars in the indie comedy The Boy Downstairs, one of those movie filled with Brooklyn brownstones and listless people.

Watch the trailer and see! The Boy Downstairs opens February 16, 2018. Here's the synopsis.

After an awkward first encounter, Diana proclaims her intentions for a genuine friendship, but as the story progresses and old wounds are reopened, she is forced to confront the true nature of her feelings.

Seeing Allred

Women's rights attorney Gloria Allred is now the subject of her own Netflix documentary, Seeing Allred. Allred's career of high-profile, occasionally controversial cases gets put under the microscope, and the doc appears to be unafraid to get up close and personal with the attorney. "I feel fortunate that Seeing Allred captures my passion and battle for justice for many victims of injustice," Allred said in a press release for the film. "The courage that my clients demonstrate, in speaking truth to power, inspires me every day as we fight together." This is yet another original feature from Netflix, who are hell-bent on concurring the world of original streaming material. Seeing Allred premieres on the streaming service February 9, 2018. Here's the synopsis.

A warrior for change. A lightning rod for controversy. Gloria Allred has devoted 40 years to asserting and protecting the rights of women, overcoming personal trauma, media scrutiny, and powerful men. Watch Seeing Allred, a Netflix documentary, February 9.


Steven Kastrissios, director of The Horseman, helms the Albanian horror film Bloodlands, and this eerie new trailer hints at something truly intriguing. This trailer is deliberately vague, using suggestion and dread rather than straight-out showing the audience what the film is fully about. That may not sit well with horror fans who just want non-stop jump-scares, but for everyone else, this is an effective trailer. It also looks visually striking, which is always a bonus. Bloodlands 0pens January 30, 2018. Here's the synopsis.

A struggling family in Albania, wrestling with tradition, must unite against a mysterious clan's aggressions, leading to a 'blood feud' that is all too familiar in the Balkans.


The Sundance Film Festival begins this week, so how about a Sundance trailer? Variety debuted the trailer for Loveling, the opening film of Sundance's World Cinema Dramatic Competition. The film is set "On the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro," and focuses on a woman named Irene (Karine Teles) who "has only a few days to overcome her anxiety and regain her inner confidence before sending her eldest son out into the world." "It's a film about the colossal and almost inexplicable family love," said Loveling director Gustavo Pizzi. "A film that talks about the difficulties of family life, about the caring of parents toward their children, and about the great expectations of happiness fulfilled every day."
