Woody Allen's
"MAGIC IN THE MOONLIGHT"

Thursday, November 27-Sunday, November 30

Set in the 1920s on the opulent Riviera in the south of France, Woody Allen’s Magic in the Moonlight is a romantic comedy about a master magician (Colin Firth) trying to expose a psychic medium (Emma Stone) as a fake.

"A master stroke of enchantment from one of the few legitimate cinematic geniuses of the modern cinema, with a nimble and tender performance of enormous elegance and charm by Colin Firth that is heart-meltingly romantic." —Rex Reed, New York Observer

"Melancholy and doubt may seem like gloomy qualities to blend into an amorous romp. But that shot of gravity is what makes Magic in the Moonlight memorable and distinctively Woody Allen." —Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

"LOVE IS STRANGE"

Thursday, December 4-Sunday, December 7

Ben and George take advantage of New York's new marriage laws and tie the knot after being together for 39 years. Unfortunately, the Catholic school where George teaches does not approve and they reluctantly fire him, forcing the couple to split up and stay with friends while they sell their apartment and look for cheaper housing. George crashes with two gay police officers, while Ben, who's a painter, bunks with his nephew's family in Brooklyn—a temporary situation that weighs heavily on all involved.  Starring John Lithgow, Alfred Molina, and Marisa Tomei

"You need to give Love Is Strange your eyes and ears and attention, let it work its effects on you gradually, like the lovely Chopin piano music that forms the spine of its soundtrack." —Andrew O'Hehir, Salon

"Calling Love Is Strange a great gay love story is both precise and inaccurate; I doubt I’ll see a more finely performed and beautifully crafted love story, with or without any mere modifiers, up on the big screen this year." —
James Rocchi,

“If you only see one film between now and the end of the year, go see 23 BLAST.” Mike Huckabee

“Perfect film to watch with your team. Inspiring, funny and because its based off a true story it’s extra special.” —Joe Galat, President, American Youth Football

"BOYHOOD"


Thursday, December 25-Sunday, December 28

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.

"A masterpiece that isnt quite like anything else in the history of cinema."—Andrew OHehir, Salon

"A once-in-a-lifetime movie."—Mike Ryan, Huffington Post

"There has simply never been anything like this movie."—Logan Hill, Rolling Stone

"LIFE ITSELF"

Thursday, January1-Saturday, January 3

Acclaimed director Steve James (Hoop Dreams) along with executive producers Martin Scorsese (The Departed) and Steven Zaillian (Moneyball) present LIFE ITSELF, a film that recounts the inspiring, entertaining and colorful life of world-renowned film critic Roger Ebert--a story that is by turns personal, funny, moving and transcendent. Based on his bestselling memoir of the same name, LIFE ITSELF, explores Roger Ebert's legacy—his Pulitzer Prize-winning film criticism at the Chicago Sun-Times, his turn as screenwriter of BEYOND THE VALLEY OF THE DOLLS, his on and off screen relationship with Gene Siskel, all culminating in his ascension as one of the most influential cultural voices in America.

"DEEPLY ENTRALLING. Documentary master Steve James has put the pieces of Ebert’s life together with extraordinary fascination and vision."—Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly

"DON’T MISS IT. I’m still a little emotional thinking about it."—Whitney Matheson, USA Today

"HUMAN CAPITAL"

Thursday, January 29-Sunday, February 1

Human Capital begins at the end, as a cyclist is run off the road by a careening SUV the night before Christmas Eve. As details emerge of the events leading up to the accident, the lives of the well-to-do Bernaschi family, privileged and detached, will intertwine with the Ossolas, struggling to keep their comfortable middle-class life, in ways neither could have expected. Dino Ossola (Fabrizio Bentivoglio), in dire financial straits, anticipates the birth of twins with his second wife (Valeria Golino). Meanwhile, Dino's teenage daughter's relationship with hedge-fund manager Giovanni Bernaschi's playboy son complicates an already tricky social dance of status, money and ambition. Paolo Virzi's taut character study deconstructs the typical linear narrative, observing transformative events from each character's perspective. The result is a nuanced account of desire, greed and the value of human life in an age of rampant capitalism and financial manipulation.

Human Capital is Italy's selection for the Academy Award's Best Foreign Film.

"A chic thriller! A top-flight cast gives the character-driven drama depth and conviction."– Deborah Young, The Hollywood Reporter

"Perfectly cast! This slick, stylish fusion of class critique and murder mystery confirms Paolo Virzi as one of Italy's more dynamic directors."– Jay Weissberg, Variety
