Horrible Bosses 2 follows from where the first film left off.

Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis and Charlie Day all return to their hilarious ways, but does Horrible Bosses 2 do the job well, or is it a pale imitation of the first film? Read our review to find out.
Next up is Foxcatcher, based on the real-life tumultuous relationship between Olympic wrestler Dave Shultz and his multimillionaire benefactor John Du Pont. This film takes a deep, dark look at the destruction caused by the pursuit of the American Dream, along with the struggle of trying to obtain it.

Halifax filmmaker Andrea Dorfman's Heartbeat is last on our list, but definitely not least. Dorfman once again collaborates with actor and singer-songwriter Tanya Davis, whose singer-songwriter character somewhat parallels Davis' real life occupation. Justine (Davis) uses a negative situation in her life as the catalyst to relaunch her creative self into songwriting, exploring what it takes to harness heartbreak and turn it into artistic success.
