The romantic comedy Holidate is a Netflix original film that covers a multitude of holidays, including Thanksgiving.

Sloane (Emma Roberts) hates the holidays due to the judging she comes under from her family at each holiday dinner she attends sans date. Jackson (Luke Bracey) spends his holiday with a woman he really has no interest in. The two fight and ends up leaving the festivities, single.

When Sloane and Jackson meet, they discover they both hate the holidays for the same reason. When Sloane shares her aunt’s strategy to avoid family members’ judgment, the pair decides to follow suit. Aunt Susan brings a new date to each gathering and calls them her “holidates.”  Sloane and Jackson agree to spend holidays together only to avoid the usual family awkwardness.

The animated science-fiction comedy, Free Birds, was originally released in 2013. This film follows two turkeys who travel back in time to alter their species from becoming the traditional Thanksgiving meal.

It is a hilarious look at Thanksgiving through the eyes of the animal who will end up on many of our plates each season. Reggie (Owen Wilson) is a domesticated bird, pardoned by the US President, and is taken to Camp David to live a life of leisure without the fear of being eaten on Thanksgiving.

The film stars Woody Harrelson, Amy Poehler, George Takei, Colm Meaney, Keith David, Dan Fogler, Jimmy Hayward and Lesley Nicol.

The dramedy Friendsgiving has an all-star cast that includes  Malin Åkerman, Kat Dennings, Aisha Tyler, Chelsea Peretti, Christine Taylor, Jane Seymour, Deon Cole, Wanda Sykes, Margaret Cho, Fortune Feimster, Jack Donnelly and Ryan Hansen.

What was supposed to be a quiet Thanksgiving with two friends Molly and Abby, turns into a huge dinner party with a random assortment of friends. Molly’s estranged mother arrives from Sweden unannounced. Other friends, some with children, arrive and invite more of their friends.


“Given Nicolas Cage’s penchant for playing destructive, retribution-seeking lunatics,” IndieWire’s Ryan Lattanzio wrote earlier this year, “you wouldn’t be remiss for thinking ‘Pig’ to be yet another vehicle for the actor to seek hell-raising vengeance.” Indeed, the “John Wick” vibes would seem to be strong with Michael Sarnoski’s debut, in which Cage plays a reclusive widower and former chef whose beloved truffle pig is stolen by a pair of desperate meth addicts, but this tender and surprisingly gentle movie defies expectations at every turn. While Cage’s character may blow through Portland with blood caked on his face in search of his beloved swine, what appears poised to become a violent rampage simmers instead into a soulful meditation on loss; not another film about the nature of grief so much as a mythic tale about the nature of acceptance. What initially promises to be a wilder riff on “Taken” winds up cleaving a lot closer to the likes of “Ratatouille,” and the journey it takes to get there makes for one of the very best movies of the year.


Just in time for the release of Sean Baker’s incredible “Red Rocket,” Magnolia Selects is celebrating the movie that elevated him towards the highest echelons of American indie cinema and kick-started his current hot streak of scrappy, frenetic movies about life in the margins of the richest country on Earth. “Tangerine” is still every inch the bittersweet rush of blood to the head it was when it took Sundance by storm in 2015, and its influence on low-budget digital filmmaking only seems to grow by the day. Here’s what Jude Dry had to say about the film when IndieWire named it one of the 100 best movies of the 2010s:

An audacious and infinitely re-watchable farce about a day in the life of two trans girls working the streets of downtown Los Angeles, Sean Baker’s “Tangerine” was both an instant classic, and a lightning rod for emerging trans cinema. Baker earned major points for casting actual trans women in the leads — a rarity in 2015 that has since become the norm — and his decision paid off in a big way; Mya Taylor and Kitana Kiki Rodriquez saturate the film in such delicious specificity that it’s almost enough to make you want to swear off professional actors altogether. Shot entirely on iPhone (with the help of an anamorphic adapter), “Tangerine” made waves when it premiered at Sundance in 2015. And sure, the cinematography is vibrant and alive in a way that no one has been able to replicate on a consumer-grade camera since, but the look of the film was only a means to an end. On the contrary, it’s the raw intimacy of Baker’s approach that made “Tangerine” an instant queer classic.
