"The film is crisp, evenly paced, its colors bright, as sharp as the winter cold." (David Edelstein, New York Magazine)
After the shocking and abrupt death of an elementary school teacher, Bachir Lazhar is quickly hired as a replacement. Bachir, an Algerian immigrant living in Montreal after his own personal tragedy, finds himself at the center of a shaken and dysfunctional education system. An understated, poignant drama, Monsieur Lazhar was one of the most talked about films at Sundance and Toronto, and recently received an Oscar nomination for Best Foreign Language Film.

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel
"A sterling cast and a fine balance of comedy and poignancy make this story of unfulfilled Brit retirees discovering new life in India a pleasure-filled journey." (David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter)
Enticed by advertisements for the newly restored Marigold Hotel, a group of British retirees decide to “outsource” their retirement and move to less expensive and seemingly, exotic India. They soon discover that the hotel is a shell of its former self and isn’t as luxurious as they had believed. With an all-star cast that includes Bill Nighy, Judi Dench, and Maggie Smith, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is a witty, up-lifting, feel-good comedy.

Fantastic Mr. Fox
This delightfully funny tale for the whole family is “a sublime example of what can be done with painstaking, old-school animation” (Philadelphia Inquirer). Living in a remarkably detailed three-dimensional world, the corduroy-clad Mr. Fox (voiced by George Clooney) audaciously decides to take on three feeble-minded farmers, who resort to extreme tactics to protect their chickens.
