Japan. 2018. Directed by Hirokazu Koreeda. (121 mins.) Rated R. in Japanese with English subtitles

A heartwarming and quietly profound masterpiece,SHOPLIFTERS is a spark of joy that will have you rethinking the definition of family!

NOMINEE! Golden Globe Awards: Best Foreign Film

OSCAR SHORTLIST! Best Foreign Language Film Nominations announced January 22, 2019

NOMINEE! Film Independent Spirit Awards: Best Foreign Language Film

NOMINEE! Critics' Choice Awards: Best Foreign Language Film

"Writer-director Hirokazu Kore-eda fills the film with grace notes, humor and fine observations, circling and filling out each character while leaning more on innocence than corruption." - Tom Long, Detroit News

Filled with both good humor and touching melancholy, this moving, intimate film is an absolutely irresistible tale about the meaning of family. Winner of the Palm D’Or in Cannes and Japan’s submission to the Academy Awards for Best Foreign Language Film, this haunting exploration of love and compassion is far more than a heist story. On their way back from a shoplifting excursion, a father and his son discover a little girl shivering in the cold and decide to take her into the warmth of their home. Director Hirokazu Kore-eda has crafted a sumptuously lived-in world for SHOPLIFTERS, an insightful and haunting depiction of a makeshift family living on the outskirts of society – against all odds.


United States. 2018. Directed by Barry Jenkins. (119 mins.) Rated R. [CC,AD]

From Barry Jenkins, the Academy Award Winning director of MOONLIGHT, IF BEALE STREET COULD TALK is a vibrant and beautifully filmed adaptation of the James Baldwin 1970s love story!

WINNER! Golden Globe Awards: Best Supporting Actress (Regina King)

WINNER! National Board of Review: Best Supporting Actress (Regina King), Best Adapted Screenplay

WINNER! Critics' Choice Awards: Best Supporting Actress (Regina King), Best Adapted Screenplay

NOMINEE! Film Independent Spirit Awards: Best Supporting Female (Regina King), Best Feature, Best Director

"An intoxicating, intimate work from a born filmmaker, Beale Street is an elegant poem of a film." - Adam Graham, Detroit News

Set in early-1970s Harlem, IF BEALE STREET COULD TALK is a timeless and moving love story of both a couple’s unbreakable bond and one family’s empowering embrace. From the director of the Oscar-winning hit MOONLIGHT, and infused with the same tender lyricism and flirtatious spark, this profound, deeply moving love story is told through the eyes of Tish (newcomer KiKi Lane), a young woman who must break the news to her family that she’s pregnant by her incarcerated, but innocent, boyfriend (Stephan James, RACE, SELMA). Tish’s mother, played with heartbreaking depth by Golden Globe winner Regina King, must decide how far she will go to secure her daughter’s future. Through the unique intimacy and power of cinema, director Barry Jenkins honors the author’s prescient words and imagery, charting the emotional currents navigated in an unforgiving and racially biased world as he poetically crosses time frames to show how love and humanity endure.


UK/Ireland/USA. 2018. Directed by Yorgos Lanthimos. (120 mins.) Rated R. [CC,AD]

NOMINEE! Screen Actors Guild Awards: Female Actor in a Leading Role (Olivia Colman), Female Actor in a Supporting Role (Rachel Weisz), Female Actor in a Supporting Role (Emma Stone)

"An uproarious send-up of the aloofness of royals, and comes alive thanks to its sterling ensemble cast and Lanthimos' pristine direction." - Adam Graham, Detroit News

Turning the tropes of the powdered-wig period piece upside down and playing what would normally be taken deadly serious for laughs, director Yorgos Lanthimos (THE LOBSTER, KILLING OF A SACRED DEER) continues his superbly crafted dissection of the human condition with this darkly humorous and clever comedy. Set in the sumptuous court of Queen Anne (as played, hilariously, by a rouge-cheeked Olivia Colman) in 18th-century England, the semi-mad ruler frivolously spends her days conducting duck races even though her country is in the midst of a war. Her close friend and advisor, the wickedly witty Lady Sarah (Rachel Weisz), finds herself competing for the queen’s attention with an exceptionally fiendish new servant (Emma Stone) who is determined to worm her way into the queen’s heart. THE FAVOURITE is a complex, daring and exhilarating romp!


UK. 2018. Directed by Josie Rourke. (124 mins.) Rated R. [CC,AD]

An audacious, adventurous costume drama with shining performances from lead actresses Saiorse Ronan and Margot Robbie, MARY QUEEN OF SCOTS has the ferocity to match its royal subjects!

NOMINEE! Screen Actors Guild Awards: Female Actor in a Supporting Role (Margot Robbie)

"Director Rourke exhibits confidence and enthusiasm in dealing with such juicy material in the company of her two outstanding young actresses." - Todd McCarthy, Hollywood Reporter

Exploring the turbulent life of the charismatic Mary Stuart (Saoirse Ronan) who was Queen of France at 16, MARY QUEEN OF SCOTS is an impassioned and sprawling 16th-century tale that is captivating in both visual and historical texture. Widowed at 18, Mary defies pressure to remarry and instead, returns to her native Scotland to reclaim her rightful throne. But Scotland and England fall under the rule of her cousin Elizabeth I (Margot Robbie). Each young queen beholds the other in fear and fascination, female regents in a masculine world, but their rivalry for power erupts in betrayal, rebellion and conspiracies that precariously imperils both thrones. It is a fierce and fascinating portrayal of two powerful women.

"Roma is hypnotic and transporting and sublime, everything a movie seen on the big screen ought to be."
- Dana Stevens, Slate

An immersive, compassionate love letter to the Mexico City of his youth, Oscar winning director Alfonso Cuaron (CHILDREN OF MEN, Y TU MAMA TAMBIEN) crafts an epic semi-autobiographical story of everyday life in which time and space breathe and majestically unfold. He expertly mines the emotional terrain of a middle-class family whose center is quietly and unassumingly held together by its beloved live-in nanny and housekeeper, Cleo (Critics’ Choice Award nominee Yalitza Aparicio). Empathy, loyalty and love transcend differences in class and culture in ROMA, a visionary masterpiece that is vibrantly alive and profoundly moving.
