Finish Winter With February Comedy And Animation
Just seven days left to official declaration of spring. What a relief! To go on with this happy tune, try watching a new comedy from a rather long list of new releases. Laughing your way through the last week of this winter is definitely not a bad idea. New works of animation would also do, if you prefer visiting cinema with your little ones. And don't miss the latest releases of science fiction.
Plot Synopsis: While searching for any significance to his existence, suicidal Ben Layten (Thomas Middleditch) discovers that he almost had an adopted sister. With the help of his enthusiastic neighbor Tabby (Diana Bang), Ben sets out to find this not-quite sibling in an effort to discern if his life could have been different or more meaningful. While tracking down his would-be sister, he meets the mysterious Hanna Weathers (Jess Weixler) and suddenly finds himself in a very different relationship than what he'd been hoping for. Ben is forced to confront some dark truths as he faces the possibility that everything he thinks he knows about himself, and about Hanna, just isn't true… and that life, and love, is a lot more complicated than he ever imagined.
