Babies and cyborgs are among what’s headed to theaters this weekend in The Boss Baby and Ghost in the Shell. Also hitting screens is Jessica Chastain in the Holocaust film The Zookeeper’s Wife, the re-release of Jake Gyllenhaal in Donnie Darko (2001), and the mental illness doc God Knows Where I Am.
Read on to find out what The Hollywood Reporter‘s critics are saying about the weekend’s new offerings (as well as which film will likely top the weekend box office).
Alec Baldwin voices a suit-wearing, briefcase-carrying baby on a mission from Babycorp headquarters to stop their rival from stealing parental affection from [talking] babies everywhere. Jimmy Kimmel and Lisa Kudrow voice the parents while Tobey Maguire narrates the film based on the picture book by Marla Frazee. THR film critic Michael Rechtshaffen calls the DreamWork Animation effort a “delightful blend of clever and tender that’s certain to tickle audiences of all ages and stages.” Read the full review here.
God Knows Where I Am
The documentary explores the effects of mental illness as it follows the diary of a woman whose body was discovered in a New Hampshire farmhouse after suffering from starvation and loneliness during a New England winter. THR film critic John DeFore writes in his review that the film is full of “artistic ambition” and will “play very well with nonfiction audiences and have special value to advocates for the homeless and the mentally ill.”
