Kate (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) and
Charlie (Aaron Paul) are a young married couple whose bond is built on a
mutual love of music, laughter and drinking...especially the drinking.
When Kate’s drinking leads her to dangerous places and her job as an
elementary school teacher is put into jeopardy, she decides to join AA
and get sober. Sobriety isn’t as easy as Kate had anticipated. She
realizes she must face a difficult past, including a troubled
relationship with her mother, (Mary Kay Place) a party girl in her own
right. To cover up a drinking related incident which takes place in the
classroom, Kate fabricates a story to her employer, the school
principal, Patricia Barnes, (Megan Mullally) who is overly nurturing and
perhaps nosy. This lie soon balloons out of control and Kate is faced
with a myriad of important choices she must make. Charlie, a music
writer, whose care-free demeanor hasn’t changed much since college,
struggles to be supportive of Kate’s new lifestyle.
A LATE QUARTET
On the eve of a world renowned string
quartet’s 25th anniversary season, their beloved cellist, Peter Mitchell
(Christopher Walken), is diagnosed with the early symptoms of
Parkinson’s Disease. When Peter announces he wishes to make the upcoming
season his last, his
three colleagues find themselves at a crossroad. Competing egos and
uncontrollable passions threaten to derail years of friendship and
collaboration. Robert Gelbart (Philip Seymour Hoffman), the quartet’s
second violinist, announces his desire to alternate chairs with first
violinist Daniel Lerner (Mark Ivanir), after years of sacrifice and
peacemaking for the benefit of the group. Robert’s wife, violist
Juliette Gelbart (Catherine Keener) has a particularly difficult time
grappling with the tragic diagnosis, as Peter has served not only as a
colleague, but as a dear father figure since childhood.
THE HOUSE I LIVE IN
Filmed in more than 20 states, THE HOUSE I LIVE IN
captures heart-wrenching stories from individuals at all levels of
America's War on Drugs. From the dealer to the grieving mother, the
narcotics officer to the senator, the inmate to the federal
judge, it offers a penetrating look inside America's longest war,
laying bare its ominous inner workings and profound human rights
implications. While recognizing the seriousness of drug abuse, the film
investigates the tragic errors and shortcomings that turned a matter of
public health into a criminal justice opportunity, earning the United
States the dubious distinction of being the world's leading jailer and
giving rise to a vast industry of mass incarceration that feeds upon
the lives of poor and minority Americans. Digging deeper, the film
examines how political and economic corruption over forty years have
perpetuated the War on Drugs despite persistent and recurring evidence
of its moral, economic, and practical failures.
BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD
Hushpuppy (Quvenzhané Wallis) lives with her father, Wink (Dwight
Henry), in a remote Delta community. Wink is a stern taskmaster, but he
is preparing his young daughter for the end of the world. When Wink
falls mysteriously ill, nature seems to fall ill with him.
Temperatures rise, the ice caps melt and fearsome prehistoric beasts
called aurochs run loose. Rising waters threaten to engulf their
community, sending Hushpuppy in search of her long-lost mother.
