ENDS WEDNESDAY!

Academy Award winner Angelina Jolie directs Unbroken, an epic drama that follows the incredible life of Olympian and war hero Louis “Louie” Zamperini (Jack O’Connell) who, along with two other crewmen, survived in a raft for 47 days after a near-fatal plane crash in WWII—only to be caught by the Japanese Navy and sent to a prisoner-of-war camp. Unbroken brings to the big screen Zamperini’s unbelievable and inspiring true story about the resilient power of the human spirit. Also starring Domhnall Gleeson and Finn Wittrock as Phil and Mac, the airmen with whom Zamperini endured perilous weeks adrift in the open Pacific; Garrett Hedlund and John Magaro as fellow POWs who find an unexpected camaraderie during their internment; Alex Russell as Zamperini’s brother, Pete; and in his English-language feature debut, Japanese actor Miyavi as the brutal camp guard known only to the men as “The Bird.” Nominated for 3 Academy Awards, including Best Cinematography (Roger Deakins).

Academy Award nominee for Best Animated Feature!

From Tomm Moore, the Academy Award-nominated director of The Secret of Kells, comes a beautiful new adventure rooted in Irish folklore. Song of the Sea tells the story of Ben and his little sister Saoirse—the last Seal-child—who embark on a fantastic journey across a fading world of ancient legend and magic in an attempt to return to their home by the sea. The animated film takes inspiration from the mythological Selkies, who live as seals in the sea but become humans on land. Features the voices of legendary Irish performers Brendan Gleeson and Fionnula Flanagan, as well as music by composer Bruno Coulais (Coraline) and Irish band Kíla, both of whom previously collaborated on The Secret of Kells.

Song of the Sea is a wonder to behold. This visually stunning animation masterwork, steeped in Irish myth, folklore and legend, so adroitly mixes the magical and the everyday that to watch it is to be wholly immersed in an enchanted world.”-Kevin Turan, Los Angeles Times (Full review here)

The Imitation Game

Imitation Game

Click to enlarge

Nominated for 8 Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Actor (Cumberbatch), Best Supporting Actress (Knightley), Best Director and Best Adapted Screenplay (Graham Moore).

The Imitation Game is a dramatic portrayal of the life and work of one of Britain’s most extraordinary unsung heroes, Alan Turing (Benedict Cumberbatch, The Fifth Estate, Star Trek Into Darkness, TV’s “Sherlock”). Leading a motley crew of scholars, linguists, chess champions and intelligence officers, the loner mathematical genius was instrumental in cracking the code for Germany’s World War II Enigma Machine, a seemingly impossible code that changed daily, and in the process became a pioneer of modern-day computing. Keira Knightley co-stars as a supportive friend on the code-breaking team who tries (but fails) to help him lead a more normal social life. Intercut with the life-and-death struggle to break the code are scenes from Turing’s past, as an outcast at boarding school befriended by an older boy, and of the future and his disastrous encounter with the police in 1952, charged with the crime of homosexuality. An intense and haunting portrayal of a brilliant, complicated man, The Imitation Gamefollows a genius who under nail-biting pressure helped to shorten the war and, in turn, save thousands of lives. Also starring Charles Dance, Mark Strong and Matthew Goode.

Directed by Morten Tyldum (Headhunters).

Queen and Country

Queen and Country

Queen and Country is the hilarious follow-up to John Boorman’s Hope and Glory (1987 nominated for 5 Academy Awards), when 9-year-old Bill Rohan rejoices in the destruction of his school by an errant Luftwaffe bomb. Queen and Country picks up the story nearly a decade later as Bill (Boorman’s alter-ego), played by a charming Callum Turner, begins basic training in the early 1950s, during the Korean War. Bill is joined by a trouble-making army mate, Percy (Caleb Landry Jones). They never get near Korea, but engage in a constant battle of wits with the Catch-22-worthy, Sgt. Major Bradley — the brilliant David Thewlis. Richard E. Grant is their superior, the veddy, veddy, infinitely put-upon, aptly-named Major Cross. A superb ensemble cast limns a wonderfully funny and often moving depiction of a still-recovering postwar England.

Directed by John Boorman,  UK drama.

Queen and Country is an entertaining and sympathetic guide to a lost world: a rite of passage that Britain was to find it could do without.” -Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian (full review here)

“A pleasing return to form for the 82-year-old British director. (The film) benefits from a vividly realized sense of time and place and a gallery of colorful supporting characters burnished with the warm glow of memory. (With) the wonderful David Thewlis (and) a major played with great, sardonic exhaustion by Richard E. Grant. Caleb Landry Jones has the wiry, electric intensity of the young Brad Dourif (and) is a particular delight to watch as he exults in his own anarchic glee.” —Scott Foundas, Variety

Foxcatcher

Foxcatcher

Based on true events, Foxcatcher tells the dark and fascinating story of the unlikely and ultimately tragic relationship between an eccentric multi-millionaire and two champion wrestlers. When Olympic Gold Medal-winning wrestler Mark Schultz (Channing Tatum) is invited by wealthy heir John du Pont (Steve Carell) to move onto the du Pont estate and help form a team to train for the 1988 Seoul Olympics at his new state-of-the-art training facility, Schultz jumps at the opportunity, hoping to focus on his training and finally step out of the shadow of his revered brother, Dave (Mark Ruffalo), also an Olympic Gold Medal winner. Driven by hidden needs, du Pont sees backing Mark’s bid for Gold and the chance to “coach” a world-class wrestling team as an opportunity to gain the elusive respect of his peers and, more importantly, his disapproving mother (Vanessa Redgrave). Fueled by du Pont’s increasing paranoia and alienation from the brothers, the trio is propelled towards a tragedy no one could have foreseen. Academy Award nominee Bennett Miller (Capote, Moneyball) once again explores large themes in society through his complex character portraits of real people.

Directed by Bennett Miller, US biographical sports drama.

FOUR STARS! The hypnotic and haunting Foxcatcher can prove its worth as one of the year’s very best films. Steve Carell, Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo give the performances of their lives.” -Peter Travers, Rolling Stone (full review here)

Blade Runner – The Final Cut (2007) Special Retro Event

Blade Runner - The Final Cut

Click to enlarge

Visually spectacular, intensely action-packed and powerfully prophetic since its debut, Blade Runner returns in Ridley Scott’s definitive Final Cut, including extended scenes and never-before-seen special effects. In a signature role as 21st-century detective Rick Deckard, Harrison Ford brings his masculine-yet-vulnerable presence to this stylish noir thriller. In a future of high-tech possibility soured by urban and social decay, Deckard hunts for fugitive, muderous replicants – and is drawn to a mystery woman whose secrets may undermine his soul.

“The best version to see is Blade Runner: The Final Cut – as the perfectionist director’s definitive cut is called — which is bleaker than the original but a more wonderfully immersive and true film…a masterpiece of dystopian science fiction” -The Telegraph, London (Full review here)
