The One I Love Release Date: October 4

Ugh. Rom-coms are the worst, right? Wrong! When Mad Men's Elisabeth Moss and The League's Mark Duplass are the love interests in the film, you're at least not getting a nicely packaged, banal Kate Hudson movie. The promise of a film that melds surrealism into the world of the couple's counseling definitely seems entertaining. You can check it out at FilmBar during a five-day run beginning Saturday, October 4.

Men Women & Children Release Date: October 17

Aside from having a pretty stellar and highly varied cast (everyone from Adam Sandler to Emma Thompson to Judy Greer), this movie is probably just the kind of movie to get us all really thinking about how social media affects us. Haunting, realistic, and even a little disturbing, director Jason Reitman (Juno, Thank You For Smoking) explores relationships of both teenagers and adults in the world of texting, sexting, online dating, and missed connections.
