7.4OTTplay Rating
Joseph Gordon-Levitt essays the role of Adam, who is suffering from a rare cancer and has limited time to live. The movie is anything but depressing, which might be the first thought upon hearing the plot line. The Jonathan Levine directorial is heartwarming and poignant with a nuanced take on the topic, interspersed with jokes and finding the true meaning of friendship along the way.

Inception
9OTTplay Rating
If you haven’t watched Nolan’s mind bending flick, you might want to correct that immediately. Even with a star-studded cast which includes Leanardo DCaprio, Cilian Murphy, Tom Hardy, Michael Caine and Marion Cotillard, Levitt shines as Arthur. He is Cobb’s (DiCaprio) partner in this science fiction movie. Reportedly, Levitt had performed most of the action sequences in the film.

The Walk
7.5OTTplay Rating
In this biopic based upon Philippe Petit’s life, Levitt essays the role of a French high wire artist named Petit. He had successfully attempted a tightrope walk between the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York. The Robert Zemeckis directorial is plot-driven for most but soon descends into the thrilling nail biting territory.

7500
6.6OTTplay Rating
It is always a thrill to watch a movie set in an airplane 30000 ft. above ground, with no exits. Levitt essays the role of First Officer Tobia Ellis, a pilot aboard flight A319. After the plane takes off, a group of terrorists hold the plane hostage. What follows is a nail biting action saga.
