Compelling indie comedies, artistic dramas, and candid documentaries comprise the most obscure films of 2016. The best 2016 sleeper hits received critical acclaim despite only being available in a handful of small theaters. These limited release gems now get the attention they deserve on this list of the best little known movies of 2016, which features everything from The Lobster to Kubo and the Two Strings to Hunt for the Wilderpeople.

What films will you find on this list of the top underrated 2016 movies? Hello, My Name is Doris is a lesser known title that is well worth the watch. Directed by Michael Showalter, this charming independent film features Sally Field as the title character. Unrequited love, lasting friendships, and personal confidence are at the heart of this quirky tale. Don't Think Twice is another great independent film that few people saw. Musician Nick Cave's heartbreaking documentary One More Time with Feeling was passed over by most movie-goers in 2016. Other good films featured on this top obscure films of 2016 list include Tale of Tales, High-Rise, and Maggie's Plan.

Which sleeper hits were your favorites this year? Give the best movies a thumbs up and please add any good underrated films that are missing.
