Raw and electric, this street-level bank robbery movie will forever change the way you look at Robert Pattinson (TWILIGHT). In GOOD TIME he plays a twitchy, edgy crook who is desperate to save his brother from the psych ward - and he will do whatever it takes, no matter how illegal.
Reminiscent of the gritty New York City thrillers of the ‘70s but with the speed and fury of modern cinema, GOOD TIME is tense and exciting, wringing anxiety out of even the smallest scenes. It’s the latest film from the indie darling directing duo, Josh and Benny Safdie, but this doesn’t feel like a standard slow indie feature. It’s big and exciting, unafraid of its pulpy crime roots and yet willing to go deep into its roster of flawed, all-too human criminal characters.
This documentary was adored by critics and audiences alike at the Sundance Film Festival, and it’s not hard to see why: STEP is an inspiring, joy-bringing and toe-tapping exploration of hopes, dreams, hard work and dancing.
In the months after the death of Freddie Gray and the resulting riots that ripped through Baltimore, the young women of the Lethal Ladies step team face stress at home and at school. As the first graduating class of the Baltimore Leadership School for Young Women they have the pressure of applying to college and leading the way for other young women in their neighborhood, all while competing in the state step competition.
These brave, driven young women don’t let anything get between them and their dreams as they take out their frustrations and fears in joyously, transformative dance routines. Director Amanda Lipitz gets up close and personal with these women and shows us their highs and lows, and she sends us out of the theater with smiles on our faces and tears on our cheeks.
In a world where things can sometimes seem overwhelming and given to darkness, STEP is a reminder that we can take control of our lives and our communities and make the world a better place with a little bit of rhythm and love.
It is 1967 and Detroit is burning. As racial tensions explode in the city, a group of white police officers descend on a motel, responding to reports of shots fired. By the time that night was over three innocent people were dead, and seven more had been terrorized and brutalized. This is their true story.
Director Kathryn Bigelow (THE HURT LOCKER, ZERO DARK THIRTY) returns to the big screen to deliver one of the most intense and vital films of 2017, DETROIT. Bigelow’s precise exploration of themes of power, race, and corruption creates an exercise in tension that's just breathtaking. She also pulls the very best out of an exceptional ensemble cast that includes John Boyega (STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS), Anthony Mackie (CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR), Hannah Murray (Game of Thrones) and Will Poulter (THE REVENANT) in a breakout role.
Thoroughly gripping and truly unforgettable, DETROIT is as relevant today as it was when it happened. It's an unmissable piece of filmmaking.
Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: Boy meets girl. Girl breaks up with boy. Girl goes into a medically-induced coma and the boy stays by her bedside, dealing with her crazy parents.
Based on a heartwarming true story, THE BIG SICK follows up-and-coming comedian Kumail (Kumail Nanjiani, SILICON VALLEY) as he meets Emily (Zoe Kazan, RUBY SPARKS), a local student. They hit it off beautifully, a perfect couple from the first date. But Kumail comes from a traditional Pakistani family, and he’s expected to get into an arranged marriage with a nice Pakistani girl. Unsure how to bridge his cultures, Kumail keeps them separate… and when Emily finds out she feels betrayed and leaves him.
But when Emily gets mysteriously sick and is put into a medically-induced coma, Kumail is the closest person in her life. As her parents - a glorious Holly Hunter (BROADCAST NEWS) and a revelatory Ray Romano (EVERYBODY LOVES RAYMOND) - rush to her bedside, dealing with their own issues and cultural differences, Kumail finds himself trapped between worlds and falling back in love with this girl he thought was out of his life.
Funny, sweet and sometimes painfully honest, THE BIG SICK rewrites the rom-com playbook for the 21st century. Written by Nanjiani and his wife Emily Gordon, based on their real-life courtship, THE BIG SICK will make you laugh and cry and then laugh while you’re crying.
