ENDS THURSDAY!

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.

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)

The Face of Love is an emotionally rich, psychologically complex drama about how we cope with loss, live in the moment and ultimately move forward. Five years after the death of her beloved husband Garrett (Ed Harris), Nikki (Annette Bening) meets a man named Tom (also played by Ed Harris) who seems his exact duplicate. Not only does this stranger possess the same deeply lined face and startling blue eyes, he also shares Garrett’s kindness, humor, and passion for art. And yet he is a stranger. Suddenly, a flood of old feelings rush back to her: she’s met the love of her life. Again. Romance blossoms between Nikki and this alluring doppelgänger, but she can’t bring herself to tell him the truth about what drew her to him. So she hides her photos and prevents him from meeting friends and family. Still, she can’t resist taking him to all the old haunts. It isn’t a question of if the truth will come out, but when. Along the way, Nikki must also balance her romantic obsession with Tom with her complicated relationship with a kindly confidante and would-be lover, played by Robin Williams.

Directed by Arie Posin, US romantic comedy

Can you believe it’s been 10 years since the cult classic, super-quotable, memorable teen movie “Mean Girls” premiered? That’s 10 years of trying to make “fetch” happen, 10 years of telling the hottest guy in school that “his hair looks sexy pushed back,” 10 years of following “the rules of feminism,” 10 years of … yeah, you get the point.

In this screenplay written by and co-starring comic genius Tina Fey, Lindsay Lohan plays Cady Heron, a teen girl who has been home-schooled her whole life. Having also just returned from Africa, she is new to the confusing cultural mish-mash of contemporary high school. She manages to get along fairly well until she falls for the ex-boyfriend of Regina George (Rachel McAdams), the leader of Cady’s A-list clique. Also starring Amanda Seyfried, as well as Amy Poehler, Ana Gasteyer and Tim Meadows of “SNL” fame. Directed by Mark Waters.

Don’t forget…. “On Wednesdays we wear pink”.  April 30th is the perfect celebration date!
