Epix may be best known as a platform for classics, but it also features a solid selection of recent movies. We’ve compiled a list of the best movies now streaming on Epix.
1. Mean Creek (2003)
It’s a plot to get revenge on the bully (Josh Peck). It is revealed to the harassed victim (Rory Culkin), his brother, and their friends that the bully has a human side, and that revenge frequently comes at a greater cost than anticipated. This gripping coming-of-age story has outstanding performances from a talented cast of young actors who display a strong moral compass and the capacity to portray complex characters.
2. The Bank Job (2008)
Working-class Britons find themselves in a battle with the rich and powerful in this enthralling and enjoyable drama. When a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity brings them more than just money and jewelry, but also documents with significant secrets, this is what happens. To describe this picture as “the decent version of Jason Statham” is not just a compliment for Statham’s performance but also a way to describe the movie as a whole. As a fan of films like Argo and The Italian Job, you’ll be blown away by The Bank Job.
3. The Peanut Butter Falcon (2019)
Because it was the highest grossing indie film of 2019, you know exactly what to expect from this buddy road trip drama: it’s familiar, but not excessive.
After vandalizing the property of a rival fishing gang, a fisherman (Shia LaBeouf) is forced to flee. While traveling, he encounters a man with Down syndrome on his way to become a professional wrestling star.
4. Hello, My Name is Doris (2015)
After the death of her mother, Doris Miller, a 60-year-old office worker, takes an unexpected turn in her life. Doris’ life was placed on hold early in the film when she had to give up her hopes and ambitions to take care of her ailing mother. However, Doris is awakened when she falls head over heels for John, a much younger coworker, and dives head first into the world of social networking, electro-pop, and Brooklyn hipsterdom. Sally Field’s Doris is charming, endearing, and heartbreaking all at the same time in this film. John and her connection is undeniable, and it’s clear why they formed a bond. You’ll pull for Doris to break out of her shell and embrace her new life to the fullest in this late-life coming-of-age narrative, even if there are moments of uncomfortable humor.
5. Crazy Heart (2009)
Jeff Bridges is a beloved actor. If you won an Oscar for a film, don’t leave it unwatched. Aside from that, there are numerous more reasons to see this film. When a writer interviews a country musician who lives on the streets, he falls in love with her, and the story is based on true events. T Bone Burnett is responsible for the music. Maggie Gyllenhaal portrays a journalist, while Colin Farrell portrays a musician. There are a plethora of compelling arguments in favor of keeping up.
6. Election (1999)
Tracy Flick (Reese Witherspoon) is an infamous “that girl” in Jim McAllister’s high school class, played by Matthew Broderick. Everything goes crazy when Tracy chooses to run for class president. It’s like the floodgates have opened. Trace will stop at nothing to achieve her goal of winning, and as the situation rapidly deviates from control, the comedy and the mayhem ensue!
7. Mommy (2014)
Critics have called Antoine-Olivier Pilon’s character Steve “Rupert Grint on speed” for his performance as an abusive, ADHD adolescent who recently escaped a juvenile detention prison for setting fire to the cafeteria and wounding a fellow student. Diane, played by Anne Dorval, is like Lorelai Gilmore on speed, and it’s safe to assume that when the two of them cross paths, fireworks erupt. But ‘Die’, an anxious teacher who lives across the street, becomes friends with Kyla, who gets drawn into this chaotic, volcanic mess.
Xavier Dolan’s Mommy is his fifth feature-length film and earned the Cannes Jury Prize for its inventiveness. Every now and again, an exhilarating moment will break open the frame, which is photographed in the 1:1 “portrait” style. The Counting Crows, Celine Dion, and Blue (Da Ba Dee) by Eiffel 65 are just few of the artists featured in the soundtrack.
Out-of-control and violent, this dark comedy will leave you feeling like you’ve been punched in the belly. However, it also hits hard and fast right where it counts: the heart. Get ready to alternate between laughing out loud, clinging to your seat, and covering your mouth in disbelief while you watch this movie.
