Four singletons challenge the concept of “soulmates” in this Italian rom-com. Four to Dinner promises not only steaming piles of pasta, but steamy affairs, mix-ups, back-stabbing, and all that great drama those friends with benefits relationships bring along with them. The friends swap out for one another, trying different couple combinations to see what fits and what doesn’t. This sounds a little like the Mike Nichols classic Closer, which brought out the best drama, romance, and contemporary look on love.

Dear Mother is a provocative French comedy that’s sure to have you cracking up this month. The upcoming film is a semi-fantasy, semi-comedy, semi-drama: when a man’s heart stops beating, he’s forced to confront the oedipal issues he faces with his mother. Further, if he wants to be alive in the coming weeks, he’ll need to pose an unthinkable question to his mother as well. If he can complete all the tasks, he’ll live. But if he fails to do so within three days, he’ll die. What a bizarre premise!

We’re sorry that Phantom Thread won’t be available to stream before New Year’s Eve, since it’s the perfect way to celebrate the holiday. Nevertheless, watch it a few weeks late when it lands on Netflix later this month. The Paul Thomas Anderson hit follows a famous fashion designer and his new muse, a young chaotic women on the verge of doing something completely destructive. The days begin with confrontations, the love is tender, and the omelettes are poisoned. Phantom Thread is a masterpiece.

Tessa and Hardin’s toxic love story returns for a third film in the After trilogy. Originally based on a Harry Styles fanfic, the saga has spiraled into something that’s so much more meaningful. In this new film, we’ll get to see if Tessa ends up with passionate lover Hardin or kind boyfriend material Trevor. On top of that, we also need an update on Tessa’s father, who turned out to be the homeless man Hardin encountered in the beginning of the second film. But most importantly? We want those steamy scenes!
