Set in Los Angeles, slightly in the future, Her follows Theodore Twombly (Joaquin Phoenix, The Master), a complex, soulful man who makes his living writing touching, personal letters for other people. Heartbroken after the end of a long relationship, he becomes intrigued with a new, advanced operating system, which promises to be an intuitive entity in its own right, individual to each user. Upon initiating it, he is delighted to meet “Samantha,” a bright, female voice (Scarlett Johansson) who is insightful, sensitive and surprisingly funny. As her needs and desires grow, in tandem with his own, their friendship deepens into an eventual love for each other. From the unique perspective of Oscar-nominated filmmaker Spike Jonze (Being John Malkovich, Where the Wild Things Are, Adaptation) comes an original love story that explores the evolving nature—and the risks—of intimacy in the modern world. Also starring Amy Adams, Rooney Mara and Olivia Wilde, Her is nominated for 5 Academy Awards, including Best Picture.

Pelada (A Soccer movie)

Pelada

In partnership with West High Soccer Team

While it’s still breaking through in the United States, soccer (or “football” in most cultures) is the most popular sport in the rest of the world, and it’s a game people love to play and to watch. Luke Boughen and Gwendolyn Oxenham are two gifted American soccer players who were highly ranked college athletes and just missed out on professional careers. That hasn’t dampened their enthusiasm for the sport; Boughen says “When the ball is kicked towards me, I consider it the game beckoning me,” and in the documentary Pelada he and Oxenham follow the game’s call around the world. In Pelada, Boughen and Oxenham travel to twenty-five different countries and play pick-up games wherever they find them, from prison yards to construction sites, from alleys to playgrounds, from a moonshiner’s camp in Kenya to a game in Iran where Oxenham breaks a social taboo by kicking the ball with male players. At each stop along the way, the players talk with their new friends about the lure of the game, revel in the excitement of even the most humble match and reveal how a friendly game breaks down barriers and brings strangers together. The title Pelada literally means “Naked” in Brazil, but is also local slang for a neighborhood pick-up game; the film received its world premiere at the 2010 South by Southwest Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Ernest & Célestine

Ernest and Celestine

Click to enlarge

From the producer of THE TRIPLETS OF BELLEVILLE and THE SECRET OF THE KELLS comes a visually stunning and enormously entertaining new film that captures the kinetic, limitless possibilities of animated storytelling.

Deep below snowy, cobblestone streets, tucked away in networks of winding subterranean tunnels, lives a civilization of hard-working mice, terrified of the bears who live above ground. Unlike her fellow mice, Celestine is an artist and a dreamer—and when she nearly ends up as breakfast for ursine troubadour Ernest, the two form an unlikely bond. But it isn’t long before their friendship is put to the test by their respective bear-fearing and mice-eating communities. Magical and funny, Ernest & Celestine joyfully leaps across genres, propelled with brilliant comic timing, to capture the kinetic possibilities of animated storytelling. Bringing it all together is the warm on-screen chemistry between the two lead characters—a tender and playful rapport that will put a smile on your face and touch your heart. The English-language version stars the voices of Forest Whitaker, Mackenzie Foy, Lauren Bacall, Paul Giamatti, Megan Mullally, Nick Offerman, William H. Macy and Jeffrey Wright. Winner of France’s César Award for Best Animated Feature and nominee for the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature.

“Ernest & Celestine delivers a sweet message that should prove delightful to young and old alike. Though the premise makes it sound like it could be preachy, this cute children’s story is anything but.” -Jamie S. Rich, The Oregonian (Read the full review here)

Voices from the Ice, Retreat and Renewal,  and The Meaning of Wild       

Chugach National Forest and Alaska Geographic present a special Earth Day Event in celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Wilderness Act and its special meaning for Alaska. Three wilderness-themed films feature Alaska’s wildest places and the people and natural forces that have shaped the land. Voices from the Ice is an Alaska Classic highlighting the glaciated wildness that is Anchorage’s backyard – the Chugach National Forest, where calving glaciers thunder into meltwater lakes an hour and a world away from Alaska’s most urban city. Retreat and Renewal, the newest film to come from the Chugach National Forest, is the dramatic story of a magnificent and dynamic ecosystem, and the creatures integral to the life of this glacier-dominated yet eminently accessible landscape. The Meaning of Wild  takes viewers on a journey through one of our nation’s wildest places, the Tongass National Forest of Southeast Alaska. The film follows wildlife cameraman Ben Hamilton as he travels by boat, plane, kayak and foot to capture and share the true value of Wilderness. For more information visit Alaska Geographic’s Wilderness Filmfest webpage.

Adult World

Adult World

Amy is naive, awkward and anxious to get her poetry career off of the ground in a post-grad existence that is going nowhere. Living with her parents in a seemingly bland upstate New York town and desperate for income, she begrudgingly accepts a job at Adult World, the local, wood-paneled sex shop. Owned by a frisky elderly couple and staffed by diva transvestite Rubio and sweet local boy Alex, Amy balances her work amongst the pornography and sex toys by fiercely pursuing a surefire kick start for her success: a mentorship with reclusive writer Rat Billings, played by a hilarious John Cusack. Slowly, Amy’s world begins to meld with that of her co-workers, most affectingly as she and Alex strike up a flirty relationship.

Adult World takes its audience on a charming, nostalgic ride back to a time in young adulthood when you think you have all of the answers to a happy existence. Headstrong and defiant, Amy stumbles through her new life, surprised to find that not only can the people you trust break your heart but, more importantly, that inspiration and support can be found in the most improbable places.

Directed by Scott Coffey, US 2013 comedy.

Adult World captures beautifully, and with a great deal of self-deprecating humor, what it’s like to feel trapped in a place you think is too small to hold you.” -Stephanie Zacharek, Village Voice (Read the full review here)

Winters Tale

Set in a mythic New York City and spanning more than a century, Winter’s Tale is a story of miracles, crossed destinies, and the age-old battle between good and evil. Peter Lake (Colin Farrell) is a master thief, who never expected to have his own heart stolen by the beautiful Beverly Penn (Jessica Brown Findlay, “Downton Abbey”). But their love is star-crossed: she burns with a deadly form of consumption, and Peter has been marked for a much more violent death by his one-time mentor, the demonic Pearly Soames (Russell Crowe). Peter desperately tries to save his one true love, across time, against the forces of darkness, even as Pearly does everything in his power to take him down—winner take all and loser be damned. What Peter needs is a miracle, but only time will tell if he can find one. Also starring Jennifer Connelly, William Hurt and Eva Marie Saint. The film marks the directorial debut of Academy Award-winning screenwriter Akiva Goldsman (A Beautiful Mind), who also wrote the screenplay, based on the acclaimed novel by Mark Helprin.
