In "Welcome to Me, " Kristen Wiig plays a mentally unstable woman who uses her lottery winnings to launch a bizarre, self-obsessed television show. Highly offbeat and often funny, even if the payoff never quite arrives. The great cast includes James Marsden, Wes Bentley, Joan Cusack, Jennifer Jason Leigh and Linda Cardellini.


Angelina Jolie takes on the LAPD in the 2008 drama "Changeling, " directed by Clint Eastwood, with a first-rate performance by John Malkovich. Jolie plays a woman whose life becomes a Dante-esque nightmare in 1920s Los Angeles after she loses her son and police bring the wrong boy back.

Though the movie doesn't quite live up to the actress, Jennifer Aniston triumphs in her portrayal of woman suffering her own multiple catastrophes who becomes obsessed with the suicide of a friend in her therapy group.

Just in time for the premiere of her new comedy, "Hot Pursuit, " comes the Netflix release of Reese Witherspoon's 2001 hit, "Legally Blonde." Her turn as the purposeful but underestimated Elle Woods - a Malibu Barbie-type who enrolls at Harvard Law School to win back her ex-boyfriend - is a girl-power classic.

"The Babadook" takes horror to a new level when a widow's young son begins having nightmares about a monster in their home. The boy's mother, played by Essie Davis ("The Matrix Revolutions"), soon realizes that perhaps her son isn't lying about the monster who came from within the pages of a children's book.

"The Quiet Ones"

"The Quiet Ones" stars Jared Harris ("Lincoln") as a college professor who sets out to prove that poltergeists and the paranormal are all manifestations of the mind. After enlisting his best students, including "Hunger Games" star Sam Claflin, to push a young woman to the brink of sanity as a part of the experiment, he soon realizes that they have conjured up something far more sinister than they could have ever imagined.
