United States. 2021. Directed by Ilya Naishuller. (92 mins.) Rated R. [CC,AD]

Pure fun, pure adrenaline, NOBODY is an action packed free-for-all and an absolute blast from start to finish!

Emmy winner Bob Odenkirk (Better Call Saul, NEBRASKA) stars as Hutch Mansell, an underestimated and overlooked dad and husband, taking life's indignities on the chin and never pushing back. A nobody. When two thieves break into his suburban home one night, Hutch declines to defend himself or his family, hoping to prevent serious violence. His teenage son is disappointed in him and his wife seems to pull only further away. The aftermath of the incident strikes a match to Hutch's long-simmering rage, triggering dormant instincts and lethal skills. In a fun-fueled barrage of fists, gunfire and squealing tires, Hutch is determined that he will never be underestimated as a nobody again. At its heart, NOBODY is a raucous, old-style vigilante romp!




United States. 2020. Directed by Robin Wright. (89 mins.) Rated PG-13. [CC,AD]

A visually striking and deeply affecting tale, LAND is an emotionally rich examination of the ways love and grief are intertwined.

From acclaimed actress Robin Wright comes her directorial debut LAND, the poignant story of one woman's search for meaning in the vast and harsh American wilderness. Edee (Wright), in the aftermath of an unfathomable event, finds herself unable to stay connected to the world she once knew and in the face of that uncertainty, retreats to the magnificent, but unforgiving, wilds of the Rockies. After a local hunter (Demián Bichir) brings her back from the brink of death, she must find a way to live again. Wright shows an incredible grip on both the visual and storytelling duties that come with the director's chair and has delivered an emotionally beautiful, moving and powerfully-performed tale that any viewer can resonate with.

French Exit

United States/UK. 2020. Directed by Azazel Jacobs. (110 mins.) Rated R. [CC,AD]

Wry and beguiling, FRENCH EXIT is an earnest portrait of a bizarrely aimless woman, perfectly played by the lovely Michelle Pfeiffer!

With her plan having been to die before the money ran out, 60-year-old penniless Manhattan socialite Frances Price (Michelle Pfeiffer) discovers things haven't quite gone as planned. Her husband Franklin has been dead for 12 years and with his vast inheritance gone, she cashes in the last of her possessions and resolves to live out her twilight days anonymously in a borrowed apartment in Paris. She is accompanied by her directionless son Malcolm (Lucas Hedges) and a cat named Small Frank – who may or may not embody the spirit of Frances's dead husband. Pfeiffer delivers a sly, elegant performance in FRENCH EXIT, which provides the chief pleasure of Azazel Jacobs' film, a melancholy farce adapted by Patrick DeWitt (The Sisters Brothers) from his novel of the same name.



Long Weekend

United States. 2021. Directed by Stephen Basilone. (91 mins.) Rated R. [CC,AD]

An enchanted weekend courtship leads to unexpected revelations, but the secrets they each carry could be their undoing or the chance for a fresh start. The couple has a lively, appealing natural chemistry in LONG WEEKEND, a wistful, escapist romance that subverts expectations in the subtlest of ways, evolving into something utterly rare and sweet.
