Late Night: A swell romantic comedy of a very particular sort, a film that details the delightful attachment two women — played by Emma Thompson and Mindy Kaling in tip-top form — have not to any man (or even each other) but to the profession they're completely devoted to.
The Art of Self-Defense: Riley Stearns wrote and directed this unnerving, exacting dark comedy about masculinity and violence, starring Jesse Eisenberg as a socially awkward young man who gets much more than he bargained for when he starts learning karate.
Maiden: A potent documentary about the first all-female crew to compete in yachting's grueling Whitbread Round the World Race in 1989, it tells a mighty tale about the majesty of the human spirit and the power of women.
