Bill Murray is at his wry, wisecracking best in this riotous romantic comedy about a weatherman caught in a personal time warp on the worst day of his life. Teamed with a relentlessly cheerful producer (Andie MacDowell) and a smart-aleck cameraman (Chris Elliott), TV weatherman Phil Connors (Bill Murray) is sent to Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, to cover the annual Groundhog Day festivities. But on his way out of town, Phil is caught in a giant blizzard, which he failed to predict, and finds himself stuck in small-town hell. Just when things couldn’t get any worse, they do.

A heart-stopping love story.
Barry Jenkins (Moonlight) adapts James Baldwin’s 1974 novel chronicling two star-crossed lovers in 1970s Harlem. Gorgeously photographed, meticulously structured, and deeply resonant, Jenkins lyrically demonstrates how little has changed in the Black American experience over the past 50 years. The film was awarded Best Feature and Best Director at the 2019 Independent Spirit Awards and Regina King won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress.
