No. 4 -- Being Flynn
When a young man discovers the person he thinks is his father at a local homeless shelter, life has new meaning. This father-son drama about finding out where you come from -- even if it’s more painful than not knowing -- stars Paul Dano, Robert De Niro and Julianne Moore.
Rotten Tomatoes: 55% splat
No. 5 -- Freak Dance
If you’re a fan of the famous dance movie genre, this will be a treat for you. Set on making fun of the Step Ups and Electric Boogaloos of the past decade in dance films, Freak Dance has all the clichés and a bunch of laughs as we find out what’s so charming, but also just as cheesy about dance movies.
