After a day at home surrounded by family … you might be ready to get out of the house. Well, you’re in luck. This week, we recommend a few movies to see this weekend, as well as a few to look forward to.

The film is the latest from Richard Linklater, who we talked with recently about patriotism and the timing of war movies.
