Queen Bees United States. 2021. Directed by Michael Lembeck. (100 mins.) Rated PG-13. in English
Featuring some of the most iconic television and movie actors of the past 60 years (Ellen Burstyn, James Caan, Ann-Margret, Jane Curtin, Christopher Lloyd and Loretta Devine), this touching and winsome gem is the perfect reminder of why they've all become such huge stars! While her house undergoes repairs, a fiercely spirited and independent woman (Academy Award winner Burstyn) temporarily moves into a nearby retirement community. Once behind the doors of Pine Grove Senior Community, she encounters a swarm of wickedly wild, willfully wanton widows, cutthroat bridge tournaments and a humming hive of biting "mean girls" the likes of which she hasn't encountered since high school – all of which leaves her yearning for the sweet solitude of home. But somewhere between flower arranging and water aerobics, she discovers that it's never too late to make new friends and perhaps even find a new love. Oh, honey... QUEEN BEES is an absolute charmer!
Finding You United States. 2021. Directed by Brian Baugh. (119 mins.) Rated PG. [CC,AD] in English
After an ill-fated audition at a prestigious New York music conservatory, violinist Finley Sinclair (Rose Reid) travels to an Irish coastal village to begin her semester studying abroad. At the B&B run by her host family, she encounters gregarious and persistent heartthrob movie star Beckett Rush (Jedidiah Goodacre) who is there to film another installment of his medieval fantasy-adventure franchise. As romance sparks between the unlikely pair, a journey of discovery ignites for Finley, transforming her heart, her music, and her outlook on life. FINDING YOU is an inspirational romantic drama full of heart and humor about finding the strength to be true to oneself.
Profile United States/UK/Cyprus/Russia. 2021. Directed by Timur Bekmambetov. (106 mins.) Rated R. [CC,AD] in English and in Arabic with English subtitles
Based on a true story, PROFILE follows a deviously persistent undercover British journalist in her quest to bait and expose a terrorist recruiter through social media – while trying not to be lured into becoming a militant extremist herself. The unconventional thriller plays out entirely on a computer screen and the format isn't just a gimmick – it's an effective and avant-garde cinematic method that allows us to step straight into the mind of the character and put us through the ringer right with them. Slick, utterly involving and crackling with tension, this fascinating film not only entertains and engages, but lingers.
A Quiet Place Part II United States. 2021. Directed by John Krasinski. (97 mins.) Rated PG-13. [CC,AD] in English
A QUIET PLACE PART II is the perfect reason to return to the cinema! Picking up squarely where the first movie left off, the Abbott family must now face the terrors of the outside world as they continue their fight for survival in silence. Forced to venture into the unknown, they quickly realize that the creatures that hunt by sound are not the only threats that lurk beyond the sand path. A nerve-wracking continuation of its predecessor, A QUIET PLACE PART II expands the terrifying world of director John Krasinski's franchise without losing track of its heart.
Dream Horse UK. 2021. Directed by Euros Lyn. (113 mins.) Rated PG. [CC,AD] in English
Championing the uplifting true story of Dream Alliance, an unlikely race horse bred by Welsh bartender, Jan Vokes (Academy Award nominee Toni Collette), this winsome tale is a breath of fresh air. With very little money and no experience, Jan convinces her neighbors to chip in their meager earnings to help raise the horse and compete with the racing elites. As their thoroughbred rises through the ranks and becomes a beacon of hope, this struggling community begins to believe again in the promise of a dream. A fictionalized version based on the hugely popular documentary DARK HORSE, DREAM HORSE is an endearing, determinedly crowd-pleasing winner!
