"Chris Gardner es un padre de familia que lucha por sobrevivir. A pesar de sus valientes intentos para mantener a la familia a flote, la madre de su hijo de cinco años Christopher comienza a derrumbarse a causa de la tensión constante de la presión económica; incapaz de soportarlo, en contra de sus sentimientos, decide marcharse. Chris, convertido ahora en padre soltero, tenazmente continúa buscando un trabajo mejor pagado empleando todas las tácticas comerciales que conoce. Consigue unas prácticas en una prestigiosa correduría de bolsa y, a pesar de no percibir ningún salario, acepta con la esperanza de finalizar el plan de estudios con un trabajo y un futuro prometedor. Sin colchón económico alguno, pronto echan a Chris y a su hijo del piso en el que viven y se ven obligados a vivir en centros de acogida, estaciones de autobús, cuartos de baño o allá donde encuentren refugio para pasar la noche. A pesar de sus preocupaciones, Chris continúa cumpliendo sus obligaciones como padre y se muestra cariñoso y comprensivo, empleando el afecto y la confianza que su hijo ha depositado en él como incentivo para superar los obstáculos a los que se enfrenta."--Sitio web de HoyCinema

Peter Parker is finally happy: he is doing well at the school, girlfriend MJ Watson loves him, and the whole city loves Spider-Man, finally bestowing upon him the praise he so rightly deserves. But peace may not be possible for a superhero. Harry Osborn has taken up his late father's mantle--becoming The New Goblin, bent on revenge. Uncle Ben's real killer, Flint Marko, has been transformed into the Sandman. An alien symbiote has attached itself to the Spider suit, turning it black, enhancing its powers, and warping Peter's personality. When Peter finally overcomes the contaminated suit, it infects rival Bugle photographer Eddie Brock, who becomes villain Venom. In this battle, Peter must conquer his personal darkness as well as Spider-Mans foes, free the compassionate hero within, and trade teenage self-absorption for adulthood

There is an old belief that everyone is rewarded with the heaven or hell that he deserves. For Phil, the nasty, self-centered weather forecaster in "Groundhog Day," that hell reveals itself one morning in the Groundhog Capitol of the USA, Punxsutawney, Pa. He has journeyed there to do a remote broadcast about his namesake, the groundhog Punxsutawney Phil, and wakes up the next morning in the same bed, with the radio playing the same song, and it gradually becomes clear to him that he is reliving precisely the same day. It will be Groundhog Day again tomorrow, too, and on the day after that. Finally, Phil begins to ponder the question "What would you do if you were stuck in one place, and everything that you did was the same, and nothing mattered?"

"Bennett Miller's adaptation of Michael Lewis' non-fiction best seller Moneyball stars Brad Pitt as Billy Beane, a one-time phenom who flamed out in the big leagues and now works as the GM for the Oakland Athletics, a franchise that's about to lose their three best players to free agency. Because the team isn't in a financial position to spend as much as perennial favorites like the Yankees and the Red Sox, Beane realizes he needs to radically change how he evaluates what players can bring to the squad. After he meets Peter Brand (Jonah Hill), an Ivy League economics major working as an executive assistant for scouting on another team, Beane realizes he's found the man who understands how to subvert the system of assessing players that's been in place for nearly a century. However, as the duo begin to acquire players that seem too old, injured, or inept to play major-league baseball, they face stiff resistance from both the A's longtime scouts and the team's manager Art Howe (Philip Seymour Hoffman), who outright refuses to allow Beane's more-nontraditional acquisitions to play"--Allmovie.com, November 19, 2018
