It's a light first week of 2019 in theaters, with one new wide release and the local opening of two of the best films of 2018.

Hirokazu Kore-eda's Shoplifters (pictured) showcases the director's creative sweet spot balancing sentimentality with acidic social conscience.

Eric D. Snider appreciates the good-natured, funhouse sensibility of the horror thriller Escape Room.

In this week's feature review, Barry Jenkins adapts If Beale Street Could Talk as a rapturous, tragic mix of love story and injustice story.
