The audacious new film from writer-director Sean Baker (The Florida Project, Tangerine), starring Simon Rex in a magnetic, live-wire performance, Red Rocket is a darkly funny and humane portrait of a uniquely American hustler and a hometown that barely tolerates him.
Joaquin Phoenix followed his Oscar win for “Joker” by delivering some of the most delicate and sensitive acting of his career in Mike Mills’ “C’mon C’mon,” in which the actor plays a soft-spoken journalist traveling the country for a new project alongside his young nephew.
