Change Becomes Us

(Pink Flag)

This British post-punk band returned to unfinished material from 1979-1980 — arguably its most productive period — for this new studio release.

(Magnolia Home Entertainment)

Based on a true story, this Dutch period piece about a young queen (Alicia Vikander) who became a local hero despite her infidelity was rightly nominated for a Best Foreign Film Oscar.

(HBO)
