“Dunkirk” – a thriller following Allied soldiers in 1940 who become trapped on the beach of Dunkirk.

 

“Get Out” – this horror film uses a black man meeting white girlfriend’s parents as a way to shed satiric light on interracial relationships in modern America.  

 

“Lady Bird” – a visionary coming of age story about a high school girl and her mother.  


“The Shape of Water” – a period piece about a mute woman who works for a government  laboratory.  Her life changes when she finds and develops a relationship with an unknown scaled creature.

 

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” – this film follows the events of an unsolved murder and the mother that paints billboards trying to get it solved.

 

“The Post” – a Steven Spielberg film about the hardships overcome by Katharine Graham, the first woman to run a major American newspaper.
