New Release Picks: "Red Notice," "tick, tick...BOOM!," and an interview with Pulitzer Prize winning editor Art Cullen

This past Friday saw the release of a handful of interesting movies, including tick tick boom!, the new Jonathan Larsen biopic starring Andrew Garfield directed by Lin Manuel Miranda (in theaters for a week before coming to Netflix), Red Notice, a big budget globe-trotting action heist type thing starring The Rock, Ryan Reynolds, and Gal Gadot, and Home Sweet Home Alone which does exactly what it says on the tin, and can be found on Disney+.

For our Staff Picks we decided to highlight movies set in newsrooms that were about print media. Why? Well, there's a new documentary premiering on PBS this coming Monday, called Storm Lake, about small-town Iowa newspaper the Storm Lake Times, and we're pretty excited to share an interview Bruce Miller did recently with Storm Lake's Pulitzer Prize winning editor Art Cullen.

Storm Lake, directed by Jerry Risius and Beth Levison, premieres Monday, Nov. 15 on PBS at 10/9c. Check your local listings.

Olivia is Connecticut's resident expert on evergreens. Days before Christmas she gets a plea for help from Jack, a Christmas tree farmer in need of her skills to figure out what mystery illness is causing their trees to die out and ruining their business, which has been his family's legacy for 100 years. After calling off her Christmas wedding six months earlier, Olivia isn't eager to head home for the holidays so she agrees to make a detour and stop at Jack's farm in Avon to examine the trees. Unable to immediately discover the cause, Olivia is determined to get to the root of the problem and extends her stay to run advanced tests. With time to kill while she waits for test results for the trees, Olivia joins Jack and his friends at the holiday festivities around town and finds their traditions a welcome change to the reserved holidays she grew up with. As they spend more time together, they begin to fall for each other and Jack helps Olivia reconnect to Christmas, her parents and herself. In the end, her tenacity pays off and Olivia not only devises a way to preserve Jack's trees but she discovers the shocking truth about why his firs were fizzling — much to the dismay of Dwayne, a rival local tree farmer
