Sofia Coppola’s latest film, On the Rocks, starring Bill Murray and Rashida Jones, as well as the documentary Boys State and the Bruce Springsteen documentary Bruce Springsteen’s Letter to You, have all been released recently.

Gordon’s Little America; and the docuseries Visible: Out on Television, about LGBTQ movement milestones on television.
