Your Sister's Sister
"The three leads are pitch-perfect here, loose and low-key yet fully in character." (Justin Chang, Variety)
Your Sister's Sister starring Mark Duplass, Emily Blunt, and Rosemarie Dewitt is a comic modern update on the classic love triangle. A year after his brother's death, Jack (Duplass) is still an emotional wreck. His friend Iris (Blunt) offers her parents' secluded cabin to him for some needed R&R. Once there, he encounters Iris's sister, Hannah (Dewitt) who is dealing with a recent trauma of her own. The film is a peek into the reconciliation of family, friends, and lovers, as they awkwardly maneuver their way through the obstacles life throws at them.

"Its departures from realism have the effect of enlarging the narrow, unremarkable lives that are its focus, and by extension the audience's sense of what those lives might mean." (AO Scott, New York Times)
Writer and director Todd Solondz (Welcome to the Dollhouse) examines the irretrievability of youth and the mercilessness of time passing in this melancholy and idiosyncratic comedy starring Justin Bartha, Selma Blair, Mia Farrow and Christopher Walken.

Under African Skies
Paul Simon returns to South Africa twenty-five years after his controversial visit in defiance of the UN cultural boycott of the African nation. That first visit gave birth to Simon’s groundbreaking album, Graceland recorded with local South African artists, which changed the face of the international music scene. Directed by Oscar-nominated filmmaker Joe Berlinger (Brother’s Keeper, Paradise Lost Trilogy), it features plenty of rousing music, as well as interviews with Quincy Jones, Harry Belafonte, Paul McCartney, David Byrne and Peter Gabriel. A brilliant film that raises tough issues, while ultimately affirming music’s transcendent power to bring people together. Screening of Under African Skies is courtesy of A&E IndieFilms.

The Raid: Redemption
“A whole mess of bone-crunching, facepummeling, throat-slicing, and fist-pounding awesomeness.” (Hollywood Reporter)

Soon it’s all-out war, as the team fights their way from floor to floor to complete their mission, but also to survive.
