If Beale Street Could Talk (December 14): Director Barry Jenkins’ follow-up to 2017’s Best Picture winner, Moonlight, is an early frontrunner in this year’s awards season, earning three 2019 Golden Globe nominations even before its official release to the public.

Hometown Christmas (December 16): Several former One Tree Hill stars costarred in the Lifetime holiday movieThe Christmas Contract earlier in December, and now it’s Stephen Coletti’s turn. Coletti plays the high school sweetheart of Noelle Collins (7th Heaven‘s Beverley Mitchell), who returns home to Louisiana for the holidays to resurrect her town’s live nativity scene. Old wounds resurface between the two, but as they work together on the nativity, the hurt feelings soon give way to other emotions. Watch Hometown Christmas on December 16 at 8pm ET on Lifetime.
