by Peter Knegt (Updated 10 minutes ago) There’s a whopping 25 films listed on indieWIRE’s August calendar. From an apocalyptic love story to the best race-car driver who ever lived, check out indieWIRE‘s picks for the seven best options, and then check out the full calendar or iW’s summer movie preview; there’s many worthy films that didn’t make this list. 1.

Who’s Already Seen It? Eight critics gave it an average of A- on the film’s criticWIRE page.
