Unbelievable 

When teenager Marie Adler (Kaitlyn Dever) files a police report claiming she's been sexually assaulted by an intruder in her home, the investigating detectives, as well as the people closest to her, come to doubt the truth of her story.

Meanwhile, hundreds of miles away, detectives Grace Rasmussen and Karen Duvall (Emmy winners Toni Collette and Merritt Wever) meet while investigating an eerily similar pair of intruder rapes and partner to catch a potential serial rapist.

Inspired by the real events in The Marshall Project and ProPublica Pulitzer Prize-winning article, "An Unbelievable Story of Rape," written by T. Christian Miller and Ken Armstrong, and the This American Life radio episode, “Anatomy of Doubt”, with episodes directed by Oscar nominees Susannah Grant and Lisa Cholodenko, "Unbelievable" is a story of unspeakable trauma, unwavering tenacity, and astounding resilience.

Marianne 

When a horror novelist takes a break from writing, she discovers the demon from her book exists in the real world. This malevolent spirit named Marianne draws her home and insists she continues writing... or else.

The Mind, Explained

From dreaming to anxiety disorders, discover what's happening inside your brain with this illuminating documentary series.

Evelyn   

EVELYN is a deeply personal film from Academy Award® winning filmmakers of THE WHITE HELMETS and VIRUNGA.  It is the story of how a family survives the unthinkable.

Fourteen years after the suicide of their son and brother, Evelyn, the family decide to walk the length of the UK and try to talk about him - something they had failed to do in over a decade.

This poetic feature documentary explores the fabric of grief and the longevity of love. Part quest film, part road-trip, part memoir, EVELYN is an exposition of the taboos of mental health and male emotion, and a tribute to our times.

The I-Land   

When ten people wake up on a treacherous island with no memory of who they are or how they got there, they set off on a trek to try to get back home. They soon discover this world is not as it seems.

Faced with the I-Land’s extreme psychological and physical challenges, they must rise to their better selves -- or die as their worst ones.
