The Hateful Eight

While racing toward the town of Red Rock in post-Civil War Wyoming, bounty hunter John "The Hangman" Ruth (Kurt Russell) and his fugitive prisoner (Jennifer Jason Leigh) encounter another bounty hunter (Samuel L. Jackson) and a man who claims to be a sheriff. Hoping to find shelter from a blizzard, the group travels to a stagecoach stopover located on a mountain pass. Greeted there by four strangers, the eight travelers soon learn that they may not make it to their destination after all.

Mrs. Parker and the Vicious Circle

They were the literati of the Jazz Age, but their lives weren't as glamorous as the society pages made them seem. Dorothy Parker (Jennifer Jason Leigh), Robert Benchley (Campbell Scott), Charles MacArthur (Matthew Broderick) and the other regulars of the New York City salon known as the Algonquin Round Table publish celebrated pieces of writing and while away hours over boozy lunches. But for Parker, an endless string of droll commentary is a veneer hiding her emotional and romantic troubles.
