Top Five movies to watch on Thanksgiving

Of the major studios’ theatrical releases slated for Thanksgiving release, we’re most excited about the dramatic events unfolding in Beverly Hills. Don’t miss the story of Dana Andrews and Brooke Shields, who’ll be reuniting for A House of Gucci, while stars from the contemporary comedy market are on the slate. Pat Shurman will direct Steven Soderbergh’s Hotel Mumbai, following the deadly 2015 terrorist attacks on the city of Mumbai; the film stars Ben Kingsley, Saif Ali Khan, Rana Daggubati, Manish Dayal, Katrina Kaif, Kabir Bedi, Arjun Rampal, and Shriya Saran.

The acerbic Patricia Clarkson provides some much-needed comfort when she teams up with Rooney Mara and Steve Coogan in Shoplifters, the story of a lonely family living on the edges of town. The Basterds’ director, Quentin Tarantino, will also bring his fantasy-action epic Once Upon a Time in Hollywood to theaters, tracing the legendary Manson Family murders through the lens of actor and former mobster Rick Dalton, played by Kurt Russell, and actor and his stunt double, Cliff Booth, played by Leonardo DiCaprio.

Guided by her inner Rey, and tricked out with alien technology, Felicity Jones takes us on a journey through Aladdin’s forbidden island of Agrabah as the voice of Jasmine in the live-action remake of Disney’s beloved animated film.
