Now that the Best Exotic Marigold Hotel for the Elderly and Beautiful has only a single remaining vacancy, Sonny (Dev Patel) must figure out how to accommodate guests (including Richard Gere) as they arrive.

'71

'71


"[Jack] O'Connell runs away with '71, in which his character's every emotional, psychological and physical hurdle makes for kinetic cinema." (Manohla Dargis, New York Times)

'71 takes place over a single night in the life of a young British soldier (Jack O'Connell) accidentally abandoned by his unit following a riot on the streets of Belfast in 1971. Unable to tell friend from foe, and increasingly wary of his own comrades, he must survive the night alone and find his way to safety through a disorientating, alien and deadly landscape.

Yann Demange. 2014. 99 m. R. UK.

Magician: The Astonishing Life and Work of Orson Welles

Magician: The Astonishing Life and Work of Orson Welles


“A lively…energetic, fast-moving portrait. Workman provides a strong visual sense of the world in which Welles lived and worked.” The Hollywood Reporter

This lively documentary ranges far and wide as it examines the enigma of Orson Welles as a Hollywood star, colossal director, and—for some—equally colossal disappointment. (He said, with a smile: “I always liked Hollywood very much. It just wasn’t reciprocated.”) This look at one of the true larger-than-life characters of the 20th century includes all sorts of gems, for example Welles himself, telling stories and cheerfully contradicting himself from one interview to the next.

Chuck Workman. 2014. 94 m. PG-13. USA. Cohen Media Group.
