This holiday weekend there are multiple films to enjoy and one for almost everyone's taste. "Hitchcock" is an historical comedy/drama for cinephile nerds featuring the beloved Anthony Hopkins and Helen Mirren; "Life of Pi" is Ang Lee's epic adaptation of Yann Martel's survival novel, and "Rust and Bone" is Jacques Audiard's powerful and gritty melodrama starring Marion Cotillard and Matthias Schoenaerts. "The Central Park Five" will please doc fans, and for the youngsters there's "Rise of the Guardians."

This holiday weekend there are multiple films to enjoy and one for almost everyone's taste. "Hitchcock" is an historical comedy/drama for cinephile nerds featuring the beloved Anthony Hopkins and Helen Mirren; "Life of Pi" is Ang Lee's epic adaptation of Yann Martel's survival novel, and "Rust and Bone" is Jacques Audiard's powerful and gritty melodrama starring Marion Cotillard and Matthias Schoenaerts. "The Central Park Five" will please doc fans, and for the youngsters there's "Rise of the Guardians."

Check out reviews, details and trailers below. Happy Thanksgiving from everyone at TOH!

'Life of Pi'
'Life of Pi'
"Hitchcock" Dir. Sacha Gervasi, US | Fox Searchlight | 74% Fresh | Cast: Anthony Hopkins, Helen Mirren, Scarlett Johansson, Jessica Biel | THR: "Hitchcock might be a work of fantasy and speculation as much as it is history and biography, but as an interpretation of a major talent's inner life and imagination, it's undeniably lively and provocative." | Our Review | Hopkins on Hitchcock.

"Life of Pi" Dir. Ang Lee US | Twentieth C. Fox | 85% Fresh | Cast: Irrfan Khan, Suraj Sharma, Gerard Depardieu | Leonard Maltin: "'Life of Pi' offers a phantasmagoria, lulling us into a kind of dream-state where reality and imagination blur in the most beguiling way." | Our Interview with Sharma | Our Review | Oscar Talk.

"Rust and Bone" Dir. Jacques Audiard FR | Sony Pictures Classics | 82% Fresh | Cast: Marion Cotillard, Matthias Schoenaerts | The Atlantic: "The movie takes a contrived-sounding romance and turns it into a visceral, idiosyncratic exploration of battered bodies in search of souls." | Our Interviews with Cotillard & Schoenaerts | At AFI FEST | ThePlaylist Review.

"Rise of the Guardians" Dir. Peter Ramsey | Paramount | 77% Fresh | Voice Cast: Chris Pine, Alec Baldwin, Jude Law, Isla Fisher, Hugh Jackman | Washington Post: "A charming if slightly dark and cobwebbed animated feature about how believing in something makes it real, or real enough."

"The Central Park Five" Dir. Ken Burns, Sarah Burns, David McMahon US | 88% Fresh | Movies: "The real story is about how terrible our society is in relation to the terrible problems of the judicial system, not the latter in and of itself." | Indiewire Calls it The Most Important Doc of Burns' Career.
