More than 600 movies have opened in theaters in 2015, so if you missed a few while you were seeing "Jurassic World" a second time, don't feel too bad.

Some of this year's most noteworthy movies never played on more than a few screens. Others, like "Room" and "Carol," may expand into wider release before the end of the year. Here are eight 2015 releases you almost certainly didn't see but should; if you can't find them in theaters, keep an eye out for them on streaming, VOD, and cable.
