La Religieuse/The Nun (2013, Guillaume Nicloux) AmazonPrime

Neruda (2016, Pablo Larraín)
Lion (2016, Garth Davis)

Though an older film, it’s a gem from a top director.

Nocturnal Animals (2016, Tom Ford) Well-written and well-done, but very disturbing subject matter. Hoping Michael Shannon will get the Oscar!
Chicken People (2016, Nicole Lucas Haimes) Amazon Prime
Patriots Day (2016, Peter Berg)
