"Shot in black-and-white video that lends this New York odyssey a scrappy feel, Frances Ha foregrounds a characteristically endearing Greta Gerwig performance defined by her usual onscreen combination of high energy wit and awkward self-effacement." (Eric Kohn, Indiewire.com)
Frances Ha is a modern comic fable that explores adjusting to life in the post-college years. The film reteams the always charming Greta Gerwig (Damsels in Distress, To Rome with Love) with filmmaker Noah Baumbach (The Squid and the Whale, Margot at the Wedding) and smartly deals with issues of friendship, class, ambition, failure, and redemption.

The Reluctant Fundamentalist
"Nair has found a real gem in Riz Ahmed, who anchors the film with a charismatically watchable performance. He's in virtually every frame and you hang on his every word." (Bruce Demara, Toronto Star)
The Reluctant Fundamentalist is a story about conflicting ideologies where perception and suspicion have the power to determine life or death. Directed by Mira Nair (The Namesake, Hysterical Blindness) and starring Liev Schreiber, Kate Hudson and Keifer Sutherland, the film feautres a particularly strong performance from Riz Ahmed as a young US immigrant whose pursuit of the American Dream is halted by the 9/11 terroritst attacks.

Stories We Tell
"Stories We Tell is an affecting documentary tale about a mother and wife who ached in many of the familiar ways, but didn’t always follow the typical female playbook, which also gives her life the resonance of a mystery that’s too good to spoil here." (Manohla Dargis, NY Times)
Stories We Tell is an inspired, genre-twisting new film from Sarah Polley that explores the elusive nature of truth and memory. Polley is both filmmaker and detective as she investigates the secrets kept by a family of storytellers.
Sarah Polley. 2013. 108 m. PG-13. Canada. Roadside Attractions .

"An ode to movie love at its most deliriously unfettered, Room 237 is a nonfiction look at some very serious film fans who take The Shining, Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 masterpiece, very, very seriously." (Manohla Dargis, NY Times)
An engaging and, at times, outrageous documentary about the clues and hidden messages in Stanley Kubrick's The Shining and the cinephiles who love to point them out.

Something in the Air
"In Something in the Air, that past—a version of Assayas's own—is rendered in visuals so specific and evocative, it's perpetually alive." (Stephanie Zacharek, The Village Voice)
French filmmaker Olivier Assayas' semi-autobiographical new feature is a vibrant, incisively crafted story of a young man's artistic awakening during a moment in history when young people could feel revolution just within their grasp.
