Join us weekly as Rotten Tomatoes reports on what’s indie features are streaming. From promising releases by new voices to experimental efforts from storied filmmakers – or perhaps the next indie darling to go the distance for end-of-year accolades – we will break it all down for you here each week.


This week in our Indie Fresh List, we have a documentary about the history of stuntwomen in Hollywood, a dramedy about a family of con artists, and a historic beauty pageant. For our Spotlight Pick, we honor the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg by bringing back the recent biopic On the Basis of Sex, which Focus Features reissued this week as a tribute to Ginsburg’s life and legacy. Finally, in our Indie Trailers section, we have new clips featuring Jamie Dornan, Anthony MackieJulianne Moore, and Janelle Monáe


New This Weekend

Behind every jaw-dropping fight sequence or racing car chase, there’s a talented group of stunt performers, and Stuntwomen: The Untold Hollywood Story examines the women who make  Charlize Theron, Zoe Saldana, and Uma Thurman look incredible on screen. Featuring countless interviews with stuntwomen, filmmakers, and Hollywood stars like Michelle Rodriguez, who serves a the narrator, the film is “engaging as it weaves personal interviews with a treasure trove of archival footage and images. You really get to understand the history and the struggles these women face every day,” writes Sara Clements of Next Best Picture.

Available to rent or buy on FandangoNow, VuduiTunes, and Amazon


Kajillionaire (2020)

89%

For 26 years, a family of con-artists has lied, schemed, and scammed their way through life. When things get dicey during an ill-conceived heist, they charm a stranger into joining them, the ramifications of which change everything. The film stars Evan Rachel Wood and Gina Rodriguez and is directed by Miranda July, and Ann Hornaday of the Washington Post calls it “Funny, poignant, and ultimately triumphant.”

In select theaters now and available to rent or buy on FandangoNow.


Misbehaviour (2020)

83%

Gugu Mbatha-RawJessie Buckley, and Keira Knightley star in this dramedy that reenacts the events of the 1970 Miss World competition. Knightley and Buckley play members of the women’s liberation movement who plot to confront the sexism of beauty pageants by disrupting the live broadcast of the event. Within the pageant, things are further shaken up when news breaks that one of the competition’s first Black contestants defied the odds and took home the top prize. “Misbehaviour is excellent at not pitting women against each other. The movie takes what could be easily a progressive vs. superficial women narrative and turns it into a compassionate tale of sisterhood,” writes Stefania Sarrubba of The Mary Sue.

Available to rent or buy on FandangoNow, VuduiTunes, and Amazon.

Focus Features has issued a re-release of their 2018 film starring Felicity Jones, in which she plays Ginsburg and of which Charlotte O’Sullivan of the London Evening Standard said, “[Taking] its cue from Ruth, On the Basis of Sex includes everyone in the equation. Mothers – and fathers! – should take their brainy kids to see it.” On the Basis of Sex and the companion documentary RBG will play 1000 theaters this weekend and will also be available on demand, with all proceeds going to the American Civil Liberties Union Foundation.
