Landmark Cinemas present: a24 Films

Another Sunday afternoon rolls around and you find yourself paralyzed by the heap of homework awaiting you at your desk. Groaning in misery, you attempt to start the mountain of math you’ve forgotten from Friday. Annoyed, you shut your packet. Onto biology where the cell diagram should make a tad more sense. Yet after skimming the image, it's still driving you insane in the membrane. With a final push, you convince yourself that those AP lang chapters from Hemingway can’t be half as bad as they were Monday morning, right? You really thought. They still are. All you can think is nope. Nada. Not today, school. ‘Perhaps a movie day may shake me from my funk?’ you ponder. ‘Maybe something different?’ But what?
