Anna Kendrick and Ron Livingston hoist a couple in Joe Swanberg´s "Drinking Buddies."
Anna Kendrick and Ron Livingston hoist a couple in Joe Swanberg's "Drinking Buddies."

Drinking Buddies Olivia Wilde and Jake Johnson are workmates at a Chicago brewery - they lunch, drink, joke, flirt. But each has a significant other, throwing a wrench in their friendship in Joe Swanberg's minimalist take on male-female relationships. With Ron Livingston and Anna Kendrick. R


In a World. . . Lake Bell wrote, directed, and stars in this winning, off-the-wall comedy set in the world of voice actors - an egomanical and neurotic Hollywood gang. Professional jealousies, personal rivalries, sexism, and father-daughter tensions are explored. R


Short Term 12 A low-key, high-emotion indie set in a foster-care facility for at-risk teens, with a career-defining performance from Brie Larson as the supervisor who hides her own hurt with an outsized empathy. Full of heart and heartbreak, it's smart, funny, inspiring. R
