While 2019 is coming to a close, the shortest Oscar season in history is powering ahead. But just because there are still several weeks left before movies like “The Irishman,” “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” and “Parasite” can give their campaigns a rest doesn’t mean they tell the whole story. 2020 is filled with cinematic potential, from the Sundance lineup to anticipated studio efforts like “In the Heights” (above). In this special episode of Screen Talk, Eric Kohn and Anne Thompson share the movies they’re most excited to see in the year ahead and what sort of stories these releases might fuel about the industry as a whole.
