"The Selfish Giant" (December 17)

Arbor (Conner Chapman) is younger and more daring; Swifty (Shaun Thomas) is older and more cautious. But when the two Bradford teens find themselves out of school and running free upon the dark rolling hills of Northern England, a copper stealing gig quickly takes the fun out of playing hooky.

Where to Watch: iTunes, Bright House, Cablevision, Comcast, Cox, Insight, Time Warner


"Some Velvet Morning" (December 10)

Things go from bad to worse when Fred (Stanley Tucci) surprises Velvet (Alice Eve) with the news that he has finally left his wife, only to find himself rebuffed by his beautiful former mistress in veteran drama writer-director Neil LaBute's "Some Velvet Morning." Vowing to keep up the fight to win back Velvet's affection, Fred dives head first into emotional chaos as it unfolds from floor to floor in Velvet's white-walled townhouse.

Where to Watch: iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, YouTube, Playstation, XBOX, Vudu, Time Warner


"Twice Born" (December 6)

Starring Penelope Cruz and Emilie Hirsch, the romantic war drama "Twice Born" follows Cruz as she returns with her son to present-day Sarajevo where her son's father died in the Bosnian conflict.

Where to Watch: iTunes, Bright House, Cablevision, Comcast, Cox, Insight, Time Warner


"White Reindeer" (December 6)

Our own Eric Kohn said that director Zach Clarke "delivers a solemn twist on the holiday movie formula that simultaneously inhabits the genre and turns it inside out." This darkly comedic tale of an unexpected tragedy around the holiday season examines a housewife as she struggles to put her life back together. The dead pan humor contrasts well as she finds herself in more outrageous and dangerous situations.

Where to Watch: iTunes, Bright House, Cablevision, Comcast, Cox, Insight, Time Warner


"Wrong Cops" (December 20)

Quentin Dupieux's latest is a loose follow-up to his oddball comedy "Wrong." The comedy centers on a professionally rag tag gang of LAPD police officers steering from one gaff to another as they attempt to dispose of a body they burdened themselves with by opening fire at the wrong time and more importantly, at the wrong person.

Where to Watch: iTunes, Bright House, Cablevision, Comcast, Cox, Insight, Time Warner
