Call the library to check availability and request these new items:

Bad Moms (R)
Amy has a seemingly perfect life, however she's over-worked, over-committed, and exhausted. Fed up, she joins forces with two other over-stressed moms on a quest to liberate themselves from conventional responsibilities--putting them on a collision course with PTA Queen Bee Gwendolyn and her clique of devoted perfect moms.

Captain Fantastic (R)
An unconventional man raises his six children in the forest of the Pacific Northwest, isolated from society. When he is forced to bring his family out of seclusion and into the world, it leads to a confrontation with his father-in-law, who wants his grandchildren to have a normal life. Now Ben must question if his methods are the best for his family.

Eat That Question (R)
Told solely through rare and never before seen historic footage of Frank Zappa’s highly acclaimed 30-year career, this unique 90 minute documentary is an energetic celebration of an often outspoken and brilliant musician.

The Fits (NR)
Eleven-year-old tomboy Toni is bewitched by the tight-knit dance team she sees practicing in the same Cincinnati gymnasium where she boxes with her brother. Enamored by the power and confidence of the strong community of girls, Toni neglects her boxing, and instead eagerly absorbs the dance routines and drills from a distance.

Harmontown (NR)
Dan Harmon takes his popular podcast Harmontown on a calamitous cross-country tour. Much more than a comedy documentary, the film uncovers Harmon's public persona to reveal his complex character and his equally complex personal relationships.

Hell Or High Water (R)
When a desperate father learns the bank is going to take his family's land, he and his ex-con brother are left with no choice. They decide to rob the bank's branches, putting themselves in the crosshairs of an aging Texas Ranger.

Imperium (R)
When extremists steal devastatingly toxic materials in order to build a dirty bomb, FBI Agent Nate Foster, with help from Agent Zamparo, goes undercover in order to infiltrate their shadowy underworld. But can Nate find the group's leader--and the bomb--before his cover is blown?

Morris From America (R)
Morris is a 13-year-old who has just relocated with his single father to Heidelberg, Germany. Morris is a complete fish out of water--a budding hip-hop star in an EDM world. Morris sets out against all odds to take the hip-hop world by storm, and win the girl of his dreams.

The Wailing (NR)
A foreigner's mysterious appearance in a quiet, rural village causes suspicion among the locals--suspicion which quickly turns to hysteria as the townspeople begin killing each other in brutal outbursts for seemingly no reason. As the investigating officer watches his daughter fall under the same savage spell, he agrees to consult a shaman for answers--unknowingly escalating the situation into something far more dangerous.

War Dogs (R)
Two friends in their early 20s, living in Miami Beach during the Iraq War, exploit a little-known government initiative that allows smaller businesses to bid on U.S. military contracts. Starting small, they begin raking in big money and living the high life. But the two get in over their heads when they land a $300-million deal to arm the Afghan military.
