Which movie should you see?
These weeks before the new year are rife with social events. Every night it seems that there’s a work happy hour or ugly sweater spectacle, a cookie exchange with friends or dinner with family. By this point, as the parade of parties winds down, you could hardly be accused of misanthropy if you wanted to hide in a dark room and not talk to anyone for a few hours.
That’s where movies come in. You can bring along the best aspects of the dwindling holiday season –– your loved ones, peppermint bark –– yet get a little reprieve from five weeks of perpetual mingling.
The only question that remains: What should you see? The answer is: That depends. This year has been particularly rich in worthy entertainment. So whether you’re interested in watching a comedy from your couch or a drama at the theater, there’s an option.
