Five Must-See Movies in November

The way films come and go, in and out of theaters, usually it's easier to miss a movie than catch it. That makes planning ahead a must when it comes to moviegoing in the Valley. That's also why we've handpicked five must-see flicks screening this month to add to the ol' planner. Snag some snacks and scope out our picks.

Lincoln We're calling it now. This fall's big one, the one that everyone (even your mom) will ask if you've seen yet, is Lincoln. Why? Well, there's Steven Spielberg in the director's chair. Daniel "The Greatest Actor of Our Time" Day Lewis stars in the titular role. Oh, also, remember how there was just an election? Right. That might have a smidge to do with it.
