Need movie or TV suggestions for my mom for Christmas.  

Hey gang - as the title says, need movie or TV series suggestions for my mom.

Only criteria are these:

1.  Within the last 3 years movie wise
2. PG-13, unless it's a compelling story. She is a churchgoing Catholic so need to stay away from graphic sex etc. 
3. No stupid comedy like Knocked Up. She likes smart.
4. Something that's not on Netflix

She likes a lot of different genres so go all out with your suggestions. Doesn't need to be american main stream so indie movies or international would be fine.

Thanks much!

How about "Begin Again" with Mark Ruffalo and Kiera Knightly? One of the loveliest movies I've seen in a very long time. No graphic sex or really bad language.

I don't know if "Philomena", with Judi Dench and Steve Coogan is a good choice - it's about the evils of the Catholic Church in Ireland.

"The Best Marigold Hotel" and "The Second Best Marigold Hotel" are lovely movies.

"Mr. Holmes" with Ian McKellen - I haven't seen it yet but it got fantastic reviews and just came out on DVD and Blu-Ray.
