Ron’s Gone Wrong – Barney (Jack Dylan Grazer), a socially awkward middle-schooler, convinces his father to get him a BBot, to be his “Best Friend Out of the Box.” When the BBot arrives, his name is Ron (Zach Galifianakis), but it turns out that Ron is a defective model missing some coding and is a rogue unit that the company is after. Ron and Barney soon find themselves on the run in order to stop the company from reclaiming and destroying Ron. During their journey, the two misfits wind up developing the kind of friendship that BBots are meant to help form with their human counterparts, showing it’s okay to be a little odd.

The Electrical Life of Louis Wain – English artist Louis Wain (Benedict Cumberbatch) is an eccentric boxer, pianist, mad scientist, and an incredibly talented illustrator, most famous for his playful, anthropomorphized, and sometimes psychedelic illustrations of cats. At home, Louis takes care of his widowed mother and five younger sisters. To provide for them, he sells drawings of animals, until he lands a staff job at the Illustrated London News. Due to his lack of people skills, Louis struggles with interacting with others and society. It’s not until he hires a governess named Emily Richardson (Claire Foy) to take care of his younger sisters that he experiences joy he has never experienced before. Playing in select cities.
