CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED ENTERTAINMENT YOU MAY HAVE MISSED IN 2015

-
Jessica Jones Another year has come and gone, and chances are high that despite your good intentions to see a certain movie, read a book or see a live show, you didn't. It happens. After all, you're busy, so it's easy to miss out on really good entertainment. But not to worry, you can still check out some of the award-winning entertainment that debuted in 2015. Here are three of the most critically acclaimed works of last year, and where to watch each one.





Netflix's "Jessica Jones"

One of Netflix's biggest hits of the past year was "Marvel's Jessica Jones." Adapted from a comic book of the same name, this series features a former superhero suffering from PTSD who decides to open up her own private investigation business in New York City.

Critics praised this show for its feminist protagonist that bucks traditional female conventions. New York magazine's TV critic praised it for its striking visuals, subtle storytelling methods and the fair way the show treats its gay characters. The show received a 93 percent critics' approval and a 90 percent approval rating from audience members on critical aggregator site Rotten Tomatoes.

Spotlight
"Spotlight"

One of the most critically acclaimed films of last year was "Spotlight." This drama showcases a team of Boston Globe reporters who worked on a groundbreaking story about Catholic priests who were abusing children, and the Catholic Church's decades-long cover-up of the abuse.

Critics loved this film. The Washington Post's Ann Hornaday compared it to iconic and important journalism films such as "All the President's Men" and "Citizen Kane." Hornaday also praised the director for accurately capturing what a true newsroom environment feels like, saying he created "a world that is utterly, convincingly immersive, down to the last granular detail."

If you missed it, check out sites like Fandango to find theaters showing this film near you. Since the film will most likely be nominated for numerous Academy Awards, it will probably be in theaters until March.




The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time
Broadway's "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time"

The Broadway adaption of "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time" -- based on a best-selling book of the same name about an autistic boy -- received rave reviews from top critics. Ben Brantley of The New York Times described it as "one of the most fully immersive works ever to wallop Broadway." Brantley also praised it for showing the audience exactly what it would feel like to be someone with autism. This is no small feat, seeing as how something as mundane as holding a conversation or even walking down the street can be as hard as scaling Everest for someone with autism.

Fortunately for you, the show is still on Broadway. You can use online ticketing sites like Telecharge to purchase tickets for this and other award-winning Broadway shows.
