In David France's new documentary, trans activist Victoria Cruz seeks to uncover the truth of her death while celebrating her legacy.

Mudbound (Netflix, November 17) - Set in the post-WWII South, Mudbound is an epic story of two families pitted against a barbaric social hierarchy and an unrelenting landscape as they simultaneously fight the battle at home and the battle abroad.

Newly transplanted from the quiet civility of Memphis, the McAllan family is underprepared and overly hopeful for Henry's (Jason Clarke) grandiose farming dreams. Laura (Carey Mulligan) struggles to keep the faith in her husband's losing venture, meanwhile, for Hap (Rob Morgan) and Florence Jackson (Mary J. Blige), whose families have worked the land for generations, every day is a losing venture as they struggle bravely to build some small dream of their own.

Lady Bird (Netflix, Coming Soon) - Greta Gerwig reveals herself to be a bold new cinematic voice with her directorial debut, excavating both the humor and pathos in the turbulent bond between a mother and her teenage daughter.
