2 Days in New York
"The screenplay...has a jittery kind of honesty about it, which Rock and Delpy sometimes push to its limits." (Stephanie Zacharek, NPR)
This follow-up to 2 Days in Paris finds Marion (Julie Delpy) living in New York with her young son and new boyfriend, Mingus (Chris Rock). Marion's new life is chaotic, funny, and insightful, proving that filmmaker/ actress Delpy still has a knack for realistically portraying familial and cultural clashes on the big screen.

Robot & Frank
"A rueful and funny reflection on aging, death, parenthood, and technology." (Dana Stevens, Slate.com)
Aging curmudgeon and retired jewel thief Frank (Frank Langella) lives a solitary life until his son installs a caretaker robot that puts him on a strict regimen of exercise, diet and gardening. Frank’s unhappiness with his new android companion dissipates when he discovers that Robot (voiced by Peter Sarsgaard) is capable of far more than cooking and cleaning. Set in the near future, the film also stars James Marsden, Liv Tyler, Liev Schreiber and Susan Sarandon.

The image of Ponyo—a powerful sea wizard’s fish- like daughter who is desperate to become human—running across the backs of giant, racing fish in the middle of an ocean storm is one of the most exhilarating visuals in any animated film. But it’s only the centerpiece to an overwhelming visual experience as Miyazaki sets his sights on the secret lives under the sea. 35MM ARCHIVAL STUDIO PRINT!

The Queen of Versailles
Opulence and ignorance are centerstage in The Queen of Versailles, when a billionaire business man and his trophy wife, in the process of building their 90,000 sq.ft. home are hit by the financial crisis of 2008. Lauren Greenfield's documentary reveals a lifestyle of astounding excess and overweening entitlement in this terrific documentary that the NY Times says, "captures the tone of the times with a clear, surprisingly compassionate eye."
