Low Down Poster

 

Low Down

 

Based on the memoir by Amy-Jo Albany, LOW DOWN is a compassionate, tender look at the complex relationship between Amy-Jo (Elle Fanning) and her father Joe (John Hawkes), a man torn between his musical ambition, his devotion to his teenage daughter, and his suffocating heroin addiction. Set against a sensuously textured 1970s Hollywood, the film beautifully evokes a colorful, seedy world of struggling musicians, artists, and vagabonds, in which Joe and Amy-Jo strive to live the lives they want against seemingly insurmountable odds.

 

"Low Down is a knockout, a candid picture of much of jazz, and one more step for a master actor." - The New Republic.

 

"Pitch-perfect performances and an immersive evocation of period mark out experimental film veteran Jeff Preiss's feature debut." - Daily Telegraph.

 

"John Hawkes and Elle Fanning are outstanding. Possibly the most harrowing tale of drug addiction since REQUIEM FOR A DREAM." - JoBlo's Movie Emporium.

Warren Miller's 2014 film, No Turning Back, pays homage to the 65 years of mountain culture and adventure filmmaking that has lead WME to every end of the winter world. We're taking a legacy that dates back to before skis had edges and mountains had condos and we're running with it to the steepest peaks around the globe and back to the Mom and Pop hills that define skiing and riding. Since he began creating films in 1949, Warren Miller has known that as skiers and riders, there’s no need to look back, we have to continuously drive to keep our edge and chase the snow. This year, we prove that not much has changed when it comes to why it is these athletes tilt and turn down mountains and pray for storms. Sheer delight. Welcome this winter season and remember there’s No Turning Back.

Dear White People Poster

 

Dear White People

 

Winner of the 2014 Sundance Film Festival's Special Jury Award for Breakthrough Talent, Dear White People is a sly, provocative satire of race relations in the age of Obama. Writer/director Justin Simien follows a group of African American students as they navigate campus life and racial politics at a predominantly white college in a sharp and funny feature film debut that earned him a spot on Variety's annual "10 Directors to Watch."

 

"The complicated narratives don't distract from what this film does best: make you laugh about the things that make you furious."- Los Angeles Times.

 

"It's a slyly provocative achievement and a serious calling card for its writer-director, Justin Simien."- Chicago Tribune.

 

"As smart and fearless a debut as I have seen from an American filmmaker in quite some time: knowing but not snarky, self-aware but not solipsistic, open to influence and confident in its own originality."- New York Times.

 

108 min., Rated R.

 

 

Pride Poster

 

Pride - Last Shows!

 

It's the summer of 1984, Margaret Thatcher is in power and the National Union of Mineworkers is on strike, prompting a London-based group of gay and lesbian activists to raise money to support the strikers' families. Initially rebuffed by the Union, the group identifies a tiny mining village in Wales and sets off to make their donation in person. As the strike drags on, the two groups discover that standing together makes for the strongest union of all.

 

"The kind of hearty, blunt-force drama with softened edges that leaves audiences applauding and teary-eyed." - New York Times.

 

"'Pride' is an unapologetic crowd-pleaser of a movie, but it has some potent points to make, and the reality of what happened has a power of its own." - Los Angeles Times.

 

"'Pride' leaves the viewer in the satisfied throes of all of those emotions: happy and sad, buoyed and chastened, and wondering, finally, what the world might look like if solidarity really could be forever." - Washington Post.

 

120 min., Rated R.
