Elvis United States/Australia. 2022. Directed by Baz Luhrmann. (159 mins.) Rated PG-13. [CC,AD] in English
Exploring the life and music of Elvis Presley (Austin Butler) as seen through the prism of his complicated relationship with his enigmatic manager, Colonel Tom Parker (Tom Hanks), ELVIS is a sumptuous, vibrant and electric tribute to the iconic performer. The story delves into the complex dynamic between Presley and Parker spanning over 20 years, from Presley's rise to fame to his unprecedented stardom, against the backdrop of the evolving cultural landscape and loss of innocence in America. With swagger to spare, Butler puts a dynamic, indelible stamp on one of the 20th century's brightest supernovas. We simply can't help falling in love.
The King's wife, daughter and granddaughter – Priscilla, Lisa Marie and Riley Keough – have all spoken out in praise of the way Butler and Luhrmann told Elvis' story, and how they appreciate the film as a new way to remember the late star.
The Phantom of the Open UK. 2022. Directed by Craig Roberts. (106 mins.) Rated PG-13. [CC,AD] in English
Winning, warm and every bit as touching as it is funny, THE PHANTOM OF THE OPEN tells the heartwarming true story of Maurice Flitcroft (Mark Rylance in an unassuming, twinkly-eyed performance), a dreamer brimming with unrelenting optimism. This humble crane operator from Barrow-in-Furness managed to gain entry to The British Open Golf Championship despite having never played a round of golf before. Following the 1976 Open, the rules were changed to prevent Flitcroft from attempting to enter again, but undeterred, he regularly attempted to enter in disguise, under pseudonyms. It is a breezy, delightful and whimsical whale of a tale about fortitude, family, love, the importance of pursuing your dreams and the refusal to either give up or give in!
A Chiara Italy/France. 2022. Directed by Jonas Carpignano. (121 mins.) Rated R. in Italian with English subtitles
A fierce coming-of-age story about the loss of innocence, A CHIARA is a taut, provocative drama following a teen girl whose life unwinds upon discovering her father may be a mafia figure. One night, the Guerrasio family and friends gather for a celebration, and the close-knit family are in top form. However, everything changes the next day when the father disappears. 15 year-old Chiara (Swamy Rotolo), unconvinced by the cover story, starts to investigate and as she gets closer to the truth, she is forced to decide what kind of future she wants for herself. This intelligent, compelling tale presents in stark and haunting ways how a family can be destroyed by secrets and lies, and how a child caught in the crossfire can try to heal from the trauma.
Brian and Charles UK. 2022. Directed by Jim Archer. (90 mins.) Not Yet Rated. [CC,AD] in English
A delightful celebration of inventiveness and ingenuity, BRIAN AND CHARLES is an entertainingly funny film with a huge heart. Something of an outcast, Brian lives alone in a remote village in the countryside and whimsically spends his spare time inventing things out of unique found objects. Without friends or family to rely on, Brian decides to build a robot as a companion to help while away the hours. Charles is not only Brian's most successful invention, but he appears to have a personality all his own and quickly becomes Brian's best friend, curing his loneliness and opening Brian's eyes to a new way of living. Charles also creates more problems than Brian bargained for, and the timid inventor has to face-up to several issues in his life. This disarmingly humorous tale that tickles the ribs and tugs at the heartstrings is a feel-good comedy that is not just about a 7 foot tall robot that loves cabbage, but about friendship, love and letting go. The world will soon fall in love with Brian and Charles...you will, too!

Downton Abbey: A New Era
See it at your Salem Cinema where you know that you and movies ALWAYS matter! UK. 2022. Directed by Simon Curtis. (96 mins.) Rated PG. [CC,AD] in English
Settle in for another delightfully charming whiff of British scandal! From award-winning creator Julian Fellowes comes the newest motion picture event DOWNTON ABBEY: A NEW ERA, a dramatic, emotional and moving continuation of the adored series. This much-anticipated cinematic return of the global phenomenon reunites the beloved cast as they go on a grand journey to the South of France to uncover the mystery of the Dowager Countess' newly inherited villa. With enough winks and nods, merry moments and saucy smirks sure to tickle the faithful, it's a warm cardigan of a film with just enough twists and surprises to keep things spicy. Fans will obviously love it to pieces, though you could easily go in cold and quickly warm to it as a magically lush period piece rich with enchanting nuance.
Everything Everywhere All At Once United States. 2022. Directed by Dan Kwan, Daniel Scheinart. Rated R. (140 mins.) [CC,AD] in English with some Mandarin and Cantonese
More audaciously expansive, adventurous and bizarre than even its title suggests, EVERYTHING EVERYWHERE ALL AT ONCE is the cinematic experience audiences have been craving. Michelle Yeoh gives the performance of a lifetime as an exhausted Chinese American woman who just can't seem to finish her taxes. Directed by Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, collectively known as Daniels (SWISS ARMY MAN), the film is a hilarious and big-hearted sci-fi action-adventure with a dizzying energy and a bonkers imagination. Completely over-the-top zany, EVERYTHING EVERYWHERE ALL AT ONCE is begging to be revisited again and again, delivering an unusually moving, heartwarming and profound message at its core. It's simply astonishing in every way.
