But when Loretta is kidnapped, she finds herself in the plot of one of her very own novels.

‘Licorice Pizza’ (2021)
Last year’s critically acclaimed “Licorice Pizza” is one of the best films you can stream on Paramount Plus. In the 1970s, 15-year-old Gary Valentine (Cooper Hoffman) meets 28-year-old Alana Kane, a photography assistant at his school’s picture day. The two develop a friendship with blurred romantic lines that proves to be a coming-of-age for both of them.
The film explores angst, dysfunctional families, alienation, and loneliness in a turbulent decade with the artistic finesse typical of director Paul Thomas Anderson.
‘Top Gun: Maverick’ (2022)
“Top Gun” skyrocketed Tom Cruise to stardom and captured a generation of fans when it hit theaters in 1986. Now Cruise is back as Capt. Pete ‘Maverick’ Mitchell, reuniting with the original film’s producer, Jerry Bruckheimer, and director, Joseph Kosinski. It’s Maverick’s job to train a new group of Top Gun graduates for a specialized mission. He won’t have an easy time winning the respect of these rambunctious youths, though, especially while juggling problems in his personal life. Many critics say it’s a better film than the original, calling it “wildly entertaining” and “emotional.”
A Paramount Plus subscription would be a great gift for a family member who wants to watch “Top Gun: Maverick.”
