The day after Thanksgiving is not only the biggest leftover eating spree of the year; movie theaters are as packed as our stomachs are. To catch our list of what's playing now and what's coming for the holidays, listen to our conversation with Arnold Gorlick, founder of Madison Art Cinemas in Madison, Conn.

HINT: Bill Murray gives one of his greatest all-time performances. And the messy magic realism film Birdman with Michael Keaton is one of Faith's favorites this year. The cast, director, and cinematography, she says, are nothing short of fascinating and brave. Plus, who doesn't love a movie about code-breaking and Stephen Hawking's remarkable life?
