What You Should Care About This Week

Tuesday, 10/15

Catch and Kill

In Bookstores

Relevant, timely and a damn good read. Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter Ronan Farrow exposes—in a dramatic account of violence and espionage—serial abusers and a host of powerful men (Matt Lauer and Harvey Weinstein) hell-bent on covering up the truth, at any cost.

Me: Elton John
Official Autobiography

In his first and only official autobiography, Elton John reveals the truth about his extraordinary life, from his rollercoaster lifestyle as shown in the film Rocketman (to which we had mixed reviews on as a movie), to becoming a living legend in the world of pop culture and music.

Democratic Debate

Tuesday, 10/15

Democratic Debate

At Otterbein University

CNN and The New York Times will co-host the fourth Democratic presidential primary debate. And it's a big one, literally. Twelve candidates will appear onstage together, which the Times reports makes the debate the largest primary debate in recorded American political history.

10:00 am EDT at Nike

The ultimate ode to “Air Force 1 Low” and New York City sports. These kicks highlight all the great aspects of the shoe through family, sports and time. Or as Nike puts it, “Even if you weren't alive in '86, your uncle always reminds you how it was the greatest year in sports, and roughly four years before that was the greatest year in sneakers.” With stark contrasts between the left and right pair, these still somehow fit perfectly together.

Jojo Rabbit

In Theaters

This film-fest favorite follows a Hitler Youth who finds out his mother is hiding a Jewish girl in their attic. The black comedy's blend of irreverent humor and serious ideas definitely won't be to everyone's taste. The anti-hate satire is audacious to a fault.

The Lighthouse

In Theaters

From visionary filmmaker, Robert Eggers, and the hit-making studio, A24, comes this hypnotic and hallucinatory story of two lighthouse keepers, William Dafoe and Robert Pattinson, on a remote New England island in the 1890s. Will it be weird? Definitely. But are we definitely intrigued to see it? Oh hell yeah.
