Christmas Break-In

Rotten Tomatoes Score: Unavailable

The plot: Izzy is an energetic 9-year-old. Overscheduled and running late, Izzy’s parents can’t pick her up on-time the last day of school before Christmas break. A blizzard complicates the matter, but not as much as a pair of bad guys who are freezing in an ice cream truck. The school’s janitor is kidnapped by the intruders, and it’s up to Izzy to save the day.

The Sisters Brothers

Rotten Tomatoes Score: 85% Fresh (Critics) – 66% Fresh (Audience)

The plot: It’s 1851, and Charlie and Eli Sisters are both brothers and assassins, boys grown to men in a savage and hostile world. The Sisters brothers find themselves on a journey through the Northwest, bringing them to the mountains of Oregon, a dangerous brothel in the small town of Mayfield, and eventually, the gold rush land of California — an adventure that tests the deadly family ties that bind.
