"...[A]n altogether extraordinary film about the psychopathology of the ties that bind..." (Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor)
A psychological drama directed by Bennett Miller and starring Steve Carell, Channing Tatum, Mark Ruffalo, Vanessa Redgrave, and Sienna Miller. Based on actual events, the film tells the story of Olympic Gold Medal-winning wrestler Mark Schultz (Tatum), who sees a way out from the shadow of his more celebrated wrestling brother Dave (Ruffalo) when he is invited by eccentric multi-millionaire John du Pont (Carell) to move onto his estate and train. This gripping tale is sure to be an awards season favorite.

"Birdman is the very definition of a tour de force..." (David Edelstein, New York Magazine)
Michael Keaton returns to the big screen in a role that only he can play. Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue Of Ignorance) is a black comedy that tells the story of an actor (Keaton) - famous for portraying an iconic superhero - as he struggles to mount a Broadway play. In the days leading up to opening night, he battles his ego and attempts to recover everything he's lost. Visually stunning, technically superb and featuring knock-out performances from an all-star cast-- Birdman is not just a comeback for Keaton-- it's a comeback for the magic of film itself.

Here, they sneak across the Syrian border as the civil war rages, and dodge bullets in the aftermath of the Gaddafi regime. “Intrepid” doesn’t even begin to describe these courageous individuals. Winner: Best Cinematography, Sundance.
