Running Time: 137 minutes
This final film of the trilogy (or quartet) supplies everything that Mockingjay—Part 1 didn’t, which is to say, spectacular actions sequences, a few moments of real pathos, and even a dollop of acute, if reactionary, social commentary as the insurrection gradually degenerates into a mirror image of the Capitol regime it is trying to overthrow. Jennifer Lawrence holds it all together, as she has throughout, aided and abetted by the usual suspects, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Jeffrey Wright, Stanley Tucci, and the diabolical Donald Sutherland, as well as the marvelous Julianne Moore, a digitally enhanced Philip Seymour Hoffman, and the bland boys, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth, or Liam Hutcherson and Josh Hemsworth…oh well, whatever.—Peter Biskind
“Counters the meager helpings offered by most teen-driven entertainment with one of the heartiest character arcs ever afforded a young female protagonist.”—Peter Debruge, Variety
“In a crowded field, winds up being one of the year’s most satisfying popcorn movies.”—Alonso Duralde, The Wrap
“…immensely satisfying, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 sends out the dystopian sci-fi franchise on a feel-bad high.”—Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald
“This is by far the darkest, most violent entry in the series, but also the best.”—Geoffrey Macnab,Independent (UK)
“For its final installment, the Hunger Games saga at last catches fire. Mockingjay – Part 2 proves to be the most satisfying, gripping and emotional film in the franchise, teeming with tense action sequences and a well-earned poignancy.”—Tim Grierson, Screen International

Masterpiece’s Downton Abbey returns for it’s sixth and final season of intimately interlaced stories, centered on an English country estate–a deliciously entertaining formula that has made it the highest-rated drama in PBS history and one of the highest-rated dramas now on American television.
Season 6 opens in 1925 with a series of crises reflecting the momentous changes that are transforming society. Women’s rights have given Lady Mary and Lady Edith new positions of responsibility: Mary runs the estate, and Edith manages the magazine she inherited from Michael Gregson. Meanwhile, Tom Branson has left for Boston, and newlyweds Lady Rose and Atticus Aldridge are trying their luck in Jazz Age New York. Anna Bates faces a murder charge, though many still suspect her husband. And for the rest of the servants, big doubts hang over their jobs. Will great houses and the fortunes that support them soon be gone?
Downton Abbey is a popular British period drama that began airing in the United Kingdom in the fall of 2010, and is re-broadcast in the United States on PBS. The series has received many accolades, including a Golden Globe Award for Best Miniseries or Television Film, a FABTA award and a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Miniseries.
Downton Abbey Season 6 premieres January 3 on WMHT TV
