“...Nebraska blossoms into a study of provincial American absurdity worthy of Preston Sturges." (A.O. Scott, NY Times)
After receiving a sweepstakes letter in the mail, a cantankerous father (Bruce Dern) thinks he’s struck it rich, and wrangles his son (Will Forte) into taking a road trip to claim the fortune. Shot in black and white across four states, Nebraska tells the stories of family life in the heartland of America.

Dallas Buyers Club
"McConaughey delivers the performance of his career, characterized not just by an astonishing physical transformation but by a wellspring of deep compassion and fearlessness." (Ann Hornaday, Washington Post)
Matthew McConaughey delivers a critically-acclaimed performance as a Texas cowboy who discovers that he is HIV-positive and has a month to live. Unwilling to give up, he takes matters into his own hands, but this means joining forces with an unlikely band of renegades and outcasts. Their shared struggle for dignity and acceptance is a uniquely American story of the transformative power of resilience in the early days of the AIDS crisis.

"Philomena is remarkably funny, with stars Judi Dench and Steve Coogan amiably sharing the comic spotlight." (Inkoo-Kang, Village Voice)
Based on the 2009 investigative book by BBC correspondent Martin Sixsmith about Philomena Lee (Judi Dench), mother to a boy conceived out of wedlock and given away for adoption in the United States. In following church doctrine, she was forced to sign a contract that wouldn't allow for any sort of inquiry into the son's whereabouts. After starting a family years later in England, Lee meets Sixsmith (Steve Coogan) with whom she decides to discover her long-lost son.

Inside Llewyn Davis
"The Coen brothers' new movie ranks with their very best in its nearly pitch-perfect balance of biting satirical humour and deep reserves of feeling." (John Frosch, The Atlantic)
The latest film from the Coen Brothers follows a week in the life of a young folk singer as he navigates the Greenwich Village folk scene of 1961. Guitar in tow, huddled against the unforgiving New York winter, he is struggling to make it as a musician against seemingly insurmountable obstacles-- some of them of his own making.
