Afternoon Delight - FILM ARCADE

  • Afternoon Delight

Afternoon Delight
A bored Silver Lake housewife (Kathryn Hahn) hires a homeless stripper (Juno Temple) as a live-in nanny and friend, and all learn Valuable Life Lessons. Well, the stripper doesn’t learn anything, because strippers have it all together. (Film Arcade)

Black Plague
Despite the misleading cover with star Lena Headey, this has nothing to do with Game of Thrones—it’s a lighthearted romantic comedy about the Black Death sweeping 1300s Europe and the possible Satanic conspiracy behind it. See? (Lightning)

Game of Thrones: Season 3
Meanwhile, back in the real Westeros, Robb Stark continues his battles beyond the wall, the wildings are still southbound, Daenerys Targaryen & the Dragons remain adorable and, all anyone really cares about, The Red Wedding! (HBO)

Jailbait
“In the vein of Orange Is the New Black,” in that it’s about women in prison and … that’s it. Sara Malakul Lane stars as a new inmate sentenced for killing her abusive stepfather in self-defense; the usual violence and lesbian stuff ensue. (Asylum)

Nurse Jackie: Season 5
Now out of rehab, Jackie (Edie Falco) jumps into the new world of sobriety and, even worse, dating. Is she headed for a relapse? Like Aerosmith and Jane’s Addiction, Jackie’s only tolerable when on drugs, so (spoiler) yeah. (Lionsgate)
