Taken 3

Liam Neeson, Forest Whitaker, Maggie Grace and Famke Janssen star in director Olivier Megaton's thriller, the third film in the franchise. The movie focuses on a former government operative who goes on the run after being framed for a murder who didn't commit. THR film critic Clarence Tsui writes in his review that it ends "the trilogy with a whimper rather than the kind of unfettered bang delivered by the first two films."

Beloved Sisters

A pair of upper-class sisters both fall for the same writer in director Dominik Graf's romantic drama. Hannah Herzsprung, Florian Stetter and Henriette Confurius co-star. THR film critic Boyd van Hoeij writes in his review that the film is a "handsomely produced if occasionally rather old-fashioned feeling period drama, which plays like a soap opera in which the characters just happen to have better manners and finery."

It's All So Quiet

Director Nanouk Leopold's drama stars Jeroen Willems, Henri Garcin and Wim Opbrouck in the story of a man living with his ill father. According to THR film critic David Rooney, the film "is a lovely testament to the talents of Dutch actor Jeroen Willems," who died in 2013 at age 50, and "this aptly titled, slow-burn drama is also a poignant reflection on solitude, homosexual repression and aging."
