Our critics review “Doctor Sleep,” based on Stephen King’s bestselling novel of the same name and is a sequel to “The Shining;” “Honey Boy,” written by Shia LaBeouf about his own life growing up in the spotlight, and he stars as his own father; “Last Christmas,” about an unlucky woman who takes a job as a department store elf, then meets a love interest played by Henry Golding (of “Crazy Rich Asians” fame).
