White God - Opens May 1st

 

A cautionary tale between a superior species and its disgraced inferior... Favoring pedigree dogs, a new regulation puts a severe tax on mixed breeds. Owners dump their dogs and shelters become overcrowded. 13-year-old Lili fights desperately to protect her pet Hagen, but her father eventually sets the dog free on the streets. Hagen and his master search desperately for each other until Lili loses faith. Struggling to survive, homeless Hagen realizes that not everyone is a dog’s best friend. Hagen joins a gang of stray dogs, but is soon captured and sent to the pound. With little hope inside there, the dogs will seize an opportunity to escape and revolt against mankind. Their revenge will be merciless. Lili may be the only one who can halt this unexpected war between man and dog. 

 

"Hungarian director Kornél Mundruczó downplays White God as a "genre experiment," but his film has real bite regardless." - Toronto Star

 

"A rousing creature-feature thriller and political allegory..." - Globe and Mail

 

"Director Kornél Mundruczó goes big with allegory, violence, drama and sentiment, and the results are riveting." - New York Post.

 

117 min., Rated R.

 

  

 

 

Clouds of Sils Maria - Opens May 8th

 

Maria Enders (Juliette Binoche) is an actress at the peak of her international career who is asked to perform in a revival of the play that made her famous twenty years earlier. Back then she played the role of Sigrid, an alluring young woman who disarms and eventually drives her boss Helena to suicide. Now she is being asked to step into the other role, that of the older Helena. She departs with her assistant (Kristen Stewart) to rehearse in Sils Maria, a remote region of the Alps. A young Hollywood starlet with a penchant for scandal (Chloë Grace Moretz) is to take on the role of Sigrid, and Maria finds herself on the other side of the mirror, face to face with an ambiguously charming woman who is, in essence, an unsettling reflection of herself.

 

"A playful and captivating hybrid of Ingmar Bergman's Persona, Joseph Mankiewicz's All About Eve, and quintessentially Assayas-esque meta-mischief." - The Atlantic.

 

"This recalls Ingmar Bergman's chamber dramas in the intensity and psychological complexity of the central relationship, yet the filmmaking is breathtakingly fluid, evoking a sense of romantic abandon." - Chicago Reader.

 

"A multi-layered, femme-driven meta-fiction that pushes all involved - including next-gen starlets Kristen Stewart and Chloe Grace Moretz - to new heights." - Variety.

 

122 min., Rated R.

 

 

 

Animals - Opens May 15th

Special screening with director and Fort Wayne native Collin Schiffli on May 16, at 8pm. Question and answer session following the film. Advance ticket sales from this screening may be found at the link below

$12 General Admission

$10 Member Admission

 

"Animals" tells the story of a young couple that exist somewhere between homelessness and the fantasy life they imagine for themselves. Though they masterfully con and steal in an attempt to stay one step ahead of their addiction, they are ultimately forced to face the reality of their situation.

  

"Dastmalchian and Shaw are thoroughly convincing both as vividly drawn, emotionally complex individuals, and as a couple inextricably bound by addiction and enabling. Among the well-cast supporting players, John Heard makes the most significant impact." - Variety.

 

"Animals presents an authenticity often lacking in films about drug abuse. It largely has Dastmalchin's screenplay to thank." - Austin Chronicle.

 

"It is a character study that reminds me of the first time I saw Gus Van Sant's Drugstore Cowboy. And it could eventually herald the arrival of as important a talent." - Film Threat.

 

90 min., Unrated.
