Indignation - Opens September 30th
Based on Philip Roth's late novel, Indignation takes place in 1951, as Marcus Messner (Logan Lerman), a brilliant working class Jewish boy from Newark, New Jersey, travels on scholarship to a small, conservative college in Ohio, thus exempting him from being drafted into the Korean War. But once there, Marcus's growing infatuation with his beautiful classmate Olivia Hutton (Sarah Gadon), and his clashes with the college's imposing Dean, Hawes Caudwell (Tracy Letts), put his and his family's best laid plans to the ultimate test.
" "Indignation" is an elegant debut for longtime producer Schamus; a visit to the past, with both sunshine and darkness." - Seattle Times.
"This is one helluva compelling film that presents us with several of the very best performances of the year." - Chicago Sun-Times.
"Schamus delivers Philip Roth to the screen with his claws intact. It's riveting cinema. Lerman and Letts give performances that will knock the wind out of you." - Rolling Stone.
110 mins., Rated R.
Certain Women - Opens November 11th
One of America’s foremost filmmakers, Kelly Reichardt (Wendy and Lucy, Meek’s Cutoff) directs a remarkable ensemble cast led by Michelle Williams, Kristen Stewart, and Laura Dern in this stirring look at three women striving to forge their own paths amidst the wide-open plains of the American Northwest: a lawyer (Dern) who finds herself contending with both office sexism and a hostage situation; a wife and mother (Williams) whose determination to build her dream home puts her at odds with the men in her life; and a young law student (Stewart) who forms an ambiguous bond with a lonely ranch hand (radiant newcomer Lily Gladstone). As their stories intersect in subtle but powerful ways, a portrait emerges of flawed, but strong-willed individuals in the process of defining themselves.
"With Certain Women, Kelly Reichardt confirms her status as cinema's foremost poet of the American Northwest." - Screen International.
"Perhaps the purest distillation of [Kelly Reichardt's] sensibilities as she patiently explores the longing for human connection in a world where men too often get prioritized." - Flavorwire.
107 mins., Rated R.

"Moonlight is a film that is both lyrical and deeply grounded in its character work, a balancing act that's breathtaking to behold." - RogerEbert.com.
