Christine, a feared and respected business woman (Kristin Scott Thomas) delights in toying with her ambitious yet naive assistant, Isabelle (Ludivine Sagnier, The Swimming Pool). Blind to Christine's duplicitous behavior, Isabelle's devotion to Christine is tested when she discovers that Christine has been passing off her work as her own.

"Movies about belief and believers frequently succumb to woozy piety or brittle contempt, but Higher Ground belongs...among the elect. Focused with sympathetic intensity on the ordeal of a single soul, it illuminates, as though from within, a complex spiritual struggle." (AO Scott, NY Times)
In Higher Ground, Vera Farmiga (Up in the Air, Down to the Bone) portrays a woman whose personal struggles with love, faith, and trust in humans and God begins to affect the tight-knit spiritual community to which she belongs. Based on the memoir of Carolyn S. Brigg's, The Dark World, the film is Farmiga's directorial debut.
Vera Farmiga. 2011. 109 m. R. USA. Sony Pictures Classics.2:35 PM 5:00 PM
"The joy of this small, unimportant contest is weirdly addictive; you come out of the film as if from a concert, playing the music of false voices in your head."- (Anthony Lane, The New Yorker)
Reprising their roles from Tristam Shandy: A Cock and Bull Story, Steve Coogan (Our Idiot Brother, Tropic Thunder) and Rob Brydon (Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels) reunite with Tristam director Michael Winterbottom (A Mighty Heart) in this witty and poignant improvisational comedy. Hired by The Observer to review fancy restaurants in the Northern England countryside, Coogan reluctantly asks Brydon to accompany him when his girlfriend and closer friends all say no. Playing loose versions of themselves, the duo spend their time on the road competing in a delightful game of comedic one-upmanship.
Michael Winterbottom. 2010. 107 m. NR. UK. IFC Films.4:45 PM
