Pick of the Week

Pitch Perfect Box Art

Pitch Perfect

Anna Kendrick stars in this surprise hit musical comedy as Beca, a freshman who's not quite right for any clique at her new college, but somehow finds herself muscled into a ragtag group of singers. If she can lead this vocal ensemble out of their traditional arrangements and perfect harmonies into all-new mashups, they might just fight and climb their way to the top of the cutthroat world of competitive collegiate a cappella. This could wind up either the coolest thing they'll ever do or the most insane, and it will probably be a little of both.
