Make it a double function with “ Greta ”(March 1), in which Isabelle Huppert, playing another quelched piano instructor, stalks an impressionable Chlo Grace Moretz.

I’ m most delighted for March’ s actress-driven dramedies. Up is “ Gloria Bell ”(March 8), starring Julianne Moore as a middle-aged divorce looking for love in Sebastin Lelio’ s remake of his own movie “ Gloria. ”( If you sanctuary ’ t seen “ Gloria, ” stop what you ’ re doing today.

A-list Lifetime Originals

Top to bottom: “Escaping the Madhouse: The Nellie Bly Story” and “Love You to Death.”

That’ s right, I stated Lifetime.

Where else can you see Christina Ricci play reporter Nellie Bly going undercover to report on a psychological organization? Bly’ s findings were released in the 1887 book Ten Days in a Mad-House, and now they are the ideal fodder for “ Escaping the Madhouse: The Nellie Bly Story ”(Jan. 19), a sensationalistic doozy that co-stars Judith Light as a nurse who abuses clients.

Then comes “ Love You to Death ” (Jan. 26), a Munchausen syndrome by proxy drama with Oscar winner Marcia Gay Harden as what looks like a picture-perfect mom taking care of her child up until her dream world goes crazy. Take that, “ Sharp Objects. ”
