Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — So much has changed since the first Harry Potter film, and we’re not just talking about the transformations of Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson into 20-something sex symbols (and Radcliffe into one who considers himself an honorary member of the LGBT community). This is easily the most adult of the Harry Potter films, with a PG-13 rating. Fans of the books know what to expect (a two-parter because the story was just too damn intricate), and though he’s seen only peripherally, there’s always the knowledge that Professor Dumbledore is gay (thanks, J.K. Rowling) to keep you invested.
Made in Dagenham — Happy-Go-Lucky's indefatigable Sally Hawkins and The Hours' Miranda Richardson headline the cast in the relatable true tale of a group of female workers at the Ford Dagenham plant in England who, in 1968, strike out for equality, with Bob Hoskins offering support. What may sound like dour drama is, in the hands of Calendar Girls director Nigel Cole, a surprisingly accessible candy-colored romp.
