Both tender apologia and vigorous justification, Clint Eastwood's "The Mule" is a deeply, fascinatingly personal meditation from the 88-year-old director who, like his aged drug mule protagonist, has spent a long time on the road.

"The Mule" is the indefatigable Eastwood's second film...

In one of Julia Roberts' many heartbreaking scenes in "Ben is Back" — and they're pretty much all heartbreaking — she lays down the law to her 19-year-old son, a recovering drug addict who's shown up unexpectedly for Christmas.

Yorgos Lanthimos' "The Favourite," a wicked blast of nasty fun, gleefully dispenses with the usual decorum of the period drama to free its powerhouse trio of actresses — Olivia Colman, Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz — in a deliciously performed romp through the wigs and corsets of 18th century...
