After the Toros’ team captain Torrance discovers that their routine was stolen by the Clovers, they vow to beat them. The movie is full of energy and fun to watch for everyone!

Catch Me If You Can

A man who posed as a pilot, a doctor, a prosecutor–Leonardo di Caprio plays Frank Abagnale Jr, a real-life con man who did just that. Catch Me If You Can tells this exhilarating story with great detail. Not only was it a great film for the general audience, but it also received critical acclaim, including two Academy Award nominations. So, whether you’re a Leonardo di Caprio fan or just love crime movies, make sure to give this a watch on Peacock!


Fences is the film adaptation of the Pulitzer Prize-winning play Fences. It stars Denzel Washington and Viola Davis who play husband and wife Troy Maxson and Rose Maxson. Troy is a garbage collector living in Pittsburg who once dreamed of becoming a professional baseball player. However, Major League Baseball did not allow black athletes to play during his prime, so he was unable to achieve his dream. His bitterness over this causes him to disagree with his son’s dreams of becoming a football player, causing tension in his family. The film was chosen by the American Film Institute as one of the top ten films of 2016 and was praised for the actors’ emotional performances. It was also nominated for four Oscars with Viola Davis winning Best Supporting Actress
