THE DISAPPEARANCE OF ELEANOR RIGBY

Drama  – 2014 – USA – 122 Minutes – Standard Deviations – Rated R

VIEW TRAILER

With his unique vision, writer/director Ned Benson ambitiously captures a complete picture of a relationship in the beautifully relatable portrait of love, empathy and truth that is The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby. Once happily married, Conor (McAvoy) and Eleanor (Chastain) suddenly find themselves as strangers longing to understand each other in the wake of tragedy. The film explores the couple’s story as they try to reclaim the life and love they once knew and pick up the pieces of a past that may be too far gone. Screened for the first time at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, Benson’s latest version of their story combines his previous two films – titled Him and Her – uniting their perspectives and taking a further look into the subjectivity of relationships.

Written & Directed by Ned Benson

Starring James McAvoy, Jessica Chastain, William Hurt, Viola Davis

The latest movie from visionary director Terry Gilliam (Brazil, Twelve Monkeys, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus). The Zero Theorem stars two-time Academy Award winner Christoph Waltz (Django Unchained, Inglorious Basterds) as Qohen Leth, an eccentric and reclusive computer genius plagued with existential angst. Living in isolation in a burnt-out church, Qohen is obsessively working on a mysterious project personally delegated to him by Management (Matt Damon) aimed at discovering the meaning of life – or the lack thereof – once and for all. Increasingly disturbed by unwanted visits from people he doesn’t fully trust, including the flirtatious Bainsley (Mélanie Thierry), Management’s wunderkind son Bob (Lucas Hedges), his unpredictable colleague Joby (David Thewlis), and would-be digital therapist Dr. Shrink-Rom (Tilda Swinton), it’s only when he experiences the power of love and desire that he’s able to understand his own reason for being.

LAST DAYS IN VIETNAM

Documentary/History/War – 2014 – USA – 98 Minutes – American Experience/PBS Films – Unrated

VIEW TRAILER

During the chaotic final days of the Vietnam War, the North Vietnamese Army closed in on Saigon as the panicked South Vietnamese people desperately attempted to escape. On the ground, American soldiers and diplomats confronted a moral quandary: whether to obey White House orders to evacuate only U.S. citizens or risk being charged with treason and save the lives of as many South Vietnamese citizens as they could. With time running out and the city under fire, an unlikely group of heroes emerged as Americans and South Vietnamese took matters into their own hands.

Directed by Rory Kennedy

 “In every way, this is an enthralling but heartbreaking story, beautifully done.” – The Austin Chronicle

“Deftly woven…a concise and gripping film” — The New York Times

BOYHOOD

BOYHOOD

Drama – 2014 – USA – 166 Minutes – IFC Films – Rated R

VIEW TRAILER

Filmed over 12 years with the same cast, Richard Linklater’s BOYHOOD is a groundbreaking story of growing up as seen through the eyes of a child named Mason (a breakthrough performance by Ellar Coltrane), who literally grows up on screen before our eyes. Starring Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette as Mason’s parents and newcomer Lorelei Linklater as his sister Samantha, BOYHOOD charts the rocky terrain of childhood like no other film has before. Snapshots of adolescence from road trips and family dinners to birthdays and graduations and all the moments in between become transcendent, set to a soundtrack spanning the years from Coldplay’s Yellow to Arcade Fire’s Deep Blue. BOYHOOD is both a nostalgic time capsule of the recent past and an ode to growing up and parenting. It’s impossible to watch Mason and his family without thinking about our own journey. 

Written & Directed by Richard Linklater

Starring Ellar Coltrane, Ethan Hawke, Patricia Arquette
