Bridgerton
Jane Austen meets Gossip Girl in this light-hearted drama based on Julia Quinn’s eight-book series. When a scathing periodical is published by a sharp-tongued anonymous figure known as Lady Whistledown, it captures the attention of high society 19th-century London. The series follows the cornerstones of any Regency drama worth its salt, showcasing the  romances, betrayals and scandals of the Bridgerton family during ball season—and refreshingly, it also features a diverse cast. December 25  
Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom

This period drama, based on the play of the same name by August Wilson, follows a day in the life of wildly successful blues singer Ma Rainey during a recording session in 1920s Chicago. Black Panther fans will be pleased to see Chadwick Boseman, in his final role, as Levee, an ambitious horn player who takes over the rehearsal room when Rainey is late to her session. December 18

 

Mank

This biographical drama is a behind-the-scenes look at the making of Orson Welles’ 1941 magnum opus Citizen Kane. Filmed in black-and-white with plenty of visual cues to its source material, Mank follows the quick-witted screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz, played by Gary Oldman, as he struggles to finish the Citizen Kane script, fraternizes with Hollywood beauties and butts heads with Welles during production. December 4

 

Tiny Pretty Things

This suspenseful teen drama series, based on the novel of the same name by Sona Charaipotra, follows an outsider who is accepted into an elite ballet academy after the death of the star ballerina under mysterious circumstances. Set in Chicago, the series was filmed in Toronto last summer so Torontonians will be able to spot some familiar sites, like the Royal Conservatory of Music standing in for the Archer School of Ballet.

The Midnight Sky

Based on the novel Good Morning, Midnight by Lily Brooks-Dalton, this sci-fi film is set in a dystopian future where humanity is obliterated by a mysterious global catastrophe. Three weeks after the disaster, when a group of unwitting astronauts can’t seem to contact their home base and attempt to return to earth, a lone man hiding out in the Arctic, played by a hipster-bearded George Clooney, races to reverse their course towards certain death. December 23

 

The Prom

In Ryan Murphy’s glitzy musical extravaganza, based on Matthew Sklar’s play of the same name, which itself was loosely based on a true story, an Indiana high schooler attracts national attention when she is forbidden from attending prom with her girlfriend. Then, four limelight-starved, fizzled-out Broadway stars—including Meryl Streep as Dee Dee Allen and Nicole Kidman as Angie Dickinson—trek out to middle-of-nowhere Indiana, Tonys in tow, with hopes to plan an epic surrogate prom and resurrect their careers. December 11
