The Witches

♣♣♣♣/♣♣♣♣♣

A Young Boy (Jahzir Kadeem Bruno) is orphaned in a car accident during the snowy winter of 1968. He relocates from Illinois to Alabama to live with his Grandma (Octavia Spencer) who does her best to give him a semblance of normalcy given their circumstances. Just as the kid is about to recover from his trauma, a witch starts stalking him. As he narrates the encounter to his grandmother, he is surprised to find out that she believes him, and even recalls how her childhood best friend was victimized by a witch by turning her into a chicken. Both of them flee and check-in to a high-class hotel, banking on the belief that the witches only prey on poor children who won’t be missed by their families. Unbeknownst to them, the very same resort is currently hosting a convention for a coven disguised as a child-support group, led by the Grand High Witch (Anne Hathaway) herself.

Rebecca

♣♣♣♣/♣♣♣♣♣

A young and naïve lady-in-waiting (Lily James) works for a wealthy old woman vacationing in Monte Carlo. There she gets to brush elbows with the rich, one of them being affluent widower Maxim de Winter (Armie Hammer). Aloof at first due to the recent death of his wife Rebecca, the two get along quickly and develop feelings for each other, so fast that when her boss plans a sudden relocation to New York, he intervenes and asks for her hand in marriage. Soon enough, Mr. and Mrs. de Winter 2.0 are on their way to his sprawling estate in England. Manderley, they call it, managed by a village of staff overseen by Mrs. Danvers (Kristin Scott Thomas), an old lady who has devoted her life to the first Mrs. de Winter and just would not shut up about her. It doesn’t take long before the new Mrs. de Winter feels sorely out of place and constantly living in the shadow of the wife who came before her.
