"As is usual with any Mike Leigh film -- a style unique and trademarked by now -- his ensemble is a collection of remarkably adept actors who know their characters so well they could stay in character for weeks, continually improvising, as they often do." (Sasha Stone, The Wrap)
Academy Award Nominee for Best Cinematography. The latest from master filmmaker Mike Leigh explores the last quarter century of the great, if eccentric, British painter J.M.W. Turner (1775-1851), who is both celebrated and reviled by the public and by royalty. Interested in learning more about Turner? Attend our Frameworks event w/Turner expert, Gillian Forrester.

The Imitation Game
"One of the year's finest films; I could happily watch The Imitation Game again." (Leonard Maltin)
Nominated for 8 Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Actor in a Leading Role. During the winter of 1952, British authorities entered the home of mathematician, cryptanalyst, and war hero Alan Turing (Benedict Cumberbatch) to investigate a reported burglary. They instead ended up arresting Turing on charges of 'gross indecency,' unwittingly incriminating the pioneer of modern-day computing. An intense and haunting portrayal of a brilliant and complicated man.

A Most Violent Year
"...Chandorís absorbing no-bull NYC drama further clarifies what might be the most promising career in American movies: an urban-headed filmmaker attuned to economies of place and time, with an eye on the vacant throne of Sidney Lumet.." (Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out New York)
A Critical Favorite! Set during the winter of 1981 -- statistically one of the most crime-ridden in New York City's history -- A Most Violent Year follows the lives of an immigrant and his family as they attempt to capitalize on the American Dream, while the rampant violence, decay, and corruption of the day drag them in and threaten to destroy all they have built. This provocative film stars Jessica Chastain, Oscar Isaac, David Oyelowo (Selma), and Albert Brooks.
