What’s New On VOD: Boyhood, Biopics, and Babadooks

If you’ve been too busy holiday shopping to make it out to see the latest blockbusters or indie hits, don’t worry: you can catch up on awards season nominees from home (some while they’re still in theaters). Here is everything recently added to on-demand platforms.

WATCH FIRST: Boyhood

Richard Linklater’s transcendent coming-of-age tale became an instant classic over the summer and is now nominated for five Golden Globes, including Best Picture and Best Director. Filmed over the course of 12 years, audiences become a fly on the wall in the life of Mason (Ellar Coltrane) from ages five to 18. The premise is simple as could be, but we assure you, you will never see a film quite like Boyhood. [Where to stream Boyhood]

WATCH NEXT: The Babadook

First-time director Jennifer Kent‘s twist on the haunted house trope is the best scare we’ve had in years. A mix of The Shining, The Ring, and The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, Kent blends old school horror with a poignant narrative of loss, grief, and the struggles of motherhood. Whatever you do, just don’t watch it alone. (Get a taste of what you’re in for with the short that inspired the film.) [Where to stream The Babadook]

TRY: Free the Nipple

Why can men remove their tops to cool down on a hot day, but women aren’t “allowed?” Inspired by the activists of the #FreeTheNipple women’s movement, Gone Girl‘s Lola Kirke stars in this black comedy about women’s rights, censorship, and hypocrisy of American media towards women’s bodies. [Where to stream Free the Nipple]

The Color of Time
Currency
Get On Up
