This week we are checking out two new movies coming out in theaters and on streaming.

The Dry

The first movie to check out this weekend is The Dry, the story of a federal investigator who is called in to investigate a murder in a small drought stricken town.  While he is there he discovers a link to an unsolved case of a teen's death almost a decade ago.  But, uncovering the truth might be harder than he thinks.

Critics are pretty positive on The Dry with Rotten Tomatoes scoring it a 93% and metacritic giving it a 67/100.  You can watch The Dry on Amazon Prime or Google Play right now.

Dream Horse

Dream Horse is based on the true story of a bartender in a small town who has the dream of breeding and training a racehorse.  To achieve her goal, she gets the town to help with the costs and soon they all have their own racehorse.  He's a little bit rough around the edges, but he ends up being a beacon of hope in their struggling community.

Critics are enjoying Dream Horse with Rotten Tomatoes scoring it an 85% and metacritic not too far behind with a 68/100.  You can see Dream Horse in theaters now.
