"Tea With The Dames": Also known overseas as "Nothing Like A Dame," this new documentary from Roger Michell ("Notting Hill") gives you the opportunity to be a fly on the wall during chats between beloved actresses Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, Eileen Atkins and Joan Plowright. Friends for decades, the four women were filmed discussing their lives and careers over a weekend at an estate in the British countryside that Plowright once shared with Sir Laurence Olivier. This is made for a very specific audience, but if you're excited at the initial description, you're in for some candid, lighthearted fun. (Cable and digital VOD)

"Hold The Dark": Fresh from its U.S. premiere at Fantastic Fest, Jeremy Saulnier ("Green Room") returns with another remarkable thriller, this time set in a remote village in Alaska. Medora (Riley Keough, "American Honey") is a grieving mother whose son Bailey is taken and presumably eaten by a pack of wolves outside her home. He is the latest child, but not the first, in the area to meet this horrible fate. With her husband Vernon (Alexander Skarsgard, "Big Little Lies") away from home serving in the Army, she has no idea how to tell him that their son is dead. Rather oddly, her first step is writing a letter to Russell Core (Jeffrey Wright, "Westworld"), a man who has literally written the book about wolfpack behavior called "A Year Among Them." When Russell shows up at her door in a blisteringly cold and bleak winter where the sun goes down at 3:30 in the afternoon, he isn't sure exactly what he can do to help. Medora insists that he track the wolves and kill them, something he tempers by saying, "The natural order doesn't want revenge." He's dealing with his own demons, unsure how to best tackle somebody else's. Before long, he's out in the woods donning a massive fur coat and heavy boots to brave the elements and see if he can find the animals who are on the hunt. Vernon soon returns home and most certainly wants revenge. He's a man with less patience and more of a violent disposition than Russell, and things really begin to twist and turn after brutal truths are revealed. Austin's own Macon Blair (who also starred in Saulnier's film "Blue Ruin") adapted the screenplay from a novel by William Giraldi, and Danish cinematographer Magnus Nordenhof Jønck beautifully captures the foreboding wilderness. View it in the astonishing 4K Dolby Vision transfer, which brings great depth and incredible texture to the snow-covered landscape. (Netflix, available in 4K UHD)
