A Cat in Paris
Dino is a cat who leads a double life. By day he’s a lovely pet, living with Zoe, the young daughter of a Paris detective. But at night Dino sneaks out the window to work with a slinky cat burglar with a big heart. A beautifully hand-drawn caper set in the shadowy alleyways of Paris, A Cat in Paris was created with young viewers in mind, but it’s smart and stylish enough that adults love it, too. Nominated for the Best Animated Feature Oscar!

Searching for Sugar Man
"An electrifying illustration of music's power to inspire and change lives on both sides of the footlights."
Academy Award Nominee for Documentary Feature
The greatest '70s rock icon that you've never heard of, Rodriguez's albums were critically well-received, but bombed on the U.S. charts. While he faded into obscurity in the States, his legend grew in South Africa, where a bootleg copy of his album made it to the airwaves and quickly became a phenomenal success. The film follows two of Rodriguez's biggest fans, who travel to the U.S. in hopes of finding out what happened to the singer whose anti-establishment message connected with them during the dark days of apartheid. Searching for Sugar Man is a story of hope, inspiration, and the resonating power of music.

Sleepwalk With Me
"It is an unvarnished portrait of the kill-or-be-killed stand-up comedy world’s lower echelon, in which paying dues means driving from gig to gig for meager wages in places that are nearly empty or are home to crowds that subject the performer to brutal heckling. " (Stephen Holden, New York Times)
Mostly known to those who follow stand-up comedy or listen to This American Life, Mike Birbiglia is now making a name for himself as filmmaker and star in this summer's newest hit, Sleepwalk With Me. This semi-autobiographical film, based on Mike’s popular one-man show, tells the story of Matt (Mike Birbiglia), a budding comic who has reached a crossroads in his life; his comedy career is at a standstill, he's in a rut with his girlfriend of eight years, and he has recently started having bouts of sleepwalking. This small, funny, and thoroughly likable film has already broken house records at the IFC Center and is sure to make Mike Birbiglia a household name. Produced and co-written by Ira Glass, Sleepwalk With Me also stars Lauren Ambrose (Six Feet Under) and Carol Kane.

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.
