"Birdman is the very definition of a tour de force..." (David Edelstein, New York Magazine)
Westchester Exclusive! 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.

"...[A]n urgent, gripping real-life spy story that should be seen by every American, and quite likely by everybody else too." (Andrew O'Hehir, Salon)
Laura Poitras (recipient of the 2012 MacArthur Genius Fellowship and co-recipient of the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service) was several years into making a film about surveillance in the post-9/11 era when she started receiving encrypted emails from someone identifying himself as "citizen four." With her camera in tow, she and journalist Glenn Greenwald flew to Hong Kong for the first of many meetings with the man who turned out to be Edward Snowden. The film that resulted from this series of tense encounters is absolutely a 100% real-life thriller unfolding minute by minute before your eyes.

"Force Majeure is a prickly moral comedy for grown-ups, full of sharply observed moments, spectacular scenery and masterfully manipulated atmosphere." (Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com)
Force Majeure was a critical favorite and word-of-mouth sensation at this year's Cannes Festival, where it took the Jury Prize in Un Certain Regard. This wickedly funny and precisely observed psychodrama tells the story of a model Swedish family on an idyllic ski holiday in the French Alps. But when a threat from mother nature reveals the flaws in human nature, the family's world is shaken to the core.
Ruben Östlund. 2014. 118 m. R. France/Denmark/Sweden/Norway, Various languages with subtitles. Magnolia Pictures.3:05 PM 5:25 PM 7:55 PM
