This Week, Part 2 (Aug. 14-16, 2015)

Because of embargoes, a lot of our critics aren’t able to share links with you until release day. Here are some last-minute reviews for this weekend’s upcoming films. We’ve kept in all the reviews posted yesterday as well so you can have more help in deciding what to see (if you haven’t already).

Our critics have been hard at work reviewing the latest films. Here is a look at what’s coming out this weekend (in select cities, check your local listings) and what else may be in theaters right now.

Mistress America

David Bax @ Battleship Pretension

  • Excerpt: Along with the soaring Frances Ha, Mistress America is evidence that Gerwig the actor is at her best when interpreting the words of Gerwig the screenwriter. She plays Brooke to perfection, making her delusions of having been wronged or of opening a restaurant pitiably transparent while always keeping her charismatic and magnetic enough to buy that Tracy would be in her thrall.

People Places Things

[New Today] Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies

  • Excerpt: People Places Things is an unexpected pleasure.

[New Today] Kristin Dreyer Kramer @ NightsAndWeekends.com
