This week’s new releases include a horror film that centers around a deaf person with a vivid imagination, a drama about a tennis prodigy-turned-coach who sees her husband face off against his former best friend – and her former boyfriend, a thriller about an environmental crisis that forces the government to shed 20% of its population, and much more!
