Austrailia. 2018. Directed by Jennifer Peedom. (74 mins.) Not Rated.

Supplementing its breathtaking imagery with a lovely classical orchestra score and narration by Willem Dafoe, MOUNTAIN is an astonishing big-screen wonder!

"An exhilarating vision of many of the world's highest - and most gorgeously photogenic - peaks, and the intrepid sorts who set out to conquer them." - Walter V. Addiego, San Francisco Chronicle

Bolstered with a soaring score by the Australian Chamber Orchestra, Willem Dafoe's hearty, soft voice narrates this cinematically stunning ode to the world's mountain peaks and humanity's fascination with conquering them. Filmed in 15 countries and assembled from 2,000 hours of hypnotizing footage, MOUNTAIN takes the viewer on a sweeping journey to the most awe-inspiring summits on earth. This breathtaking film vividly captures the fear and reverence inspired by the world’s highest peaks and glorifies the pursuit of peril – from ice climbers, snowboarders and sky-diving wing-suiters, these thrill-seekers’ daredevil antics will leave audiences astounded and inspired.



UK. 2018. Directed by Dominic Cook. (110 mins.) Rated R. [CC, AD]

ON CHESIL BEACH is a lovely, reflective and intimate drama about a newly married couple full of introspection and longing!

"It's a lyrical and rapturous film - a repressed passion play, funny, delicate and heartbreaking." - Owen Glieberman, Variety

ON CHESIL BEACH, British theater director Dominic Cooke's assured, wistful film debut, is a wonderfully sensitive and emotionally enticing piece about what it means to love, as well as what it means to let love go. Three-time Academy Award-nominated actress Saoirse Ronan and rising star Billy Howle play young newlyweds in 1962 visiting the gorgeous English seaside on their honeymoon. Shy, sexually inexperienced and unfamiliar with how to maintain everlasting relationships, they timidly navigate their awkward feelings and desires. Told with grace and humor, this intricate, introspective gem is rich, revelatory and resonating.



United States. 2018. Directed by Paul Schrader. (108 mins.) Rated R. [CC]

From acclaimed director Paul Schrader, FIRST REFORMED is a haunting and meditative story brimming with insights into faith and guilt!

"This is a movie about faith tested, and people trying to reconcile hope with a world that can feel hopeless. It's a film to be seen in a dark theater with an audience hushed in reverence of the power of cinema." - Chris Vognar, Dallas Morning News

A resonating, gripping new thriller from writer/director Paul Schrader (the legendary screenwriter behind Taxi Driver), FIRST REFORMED is a passionate film infused with conflicted religious fury about one man's crisis of faith and his reckoning with environmental decay. Ernest Toller (Ethan Hawke), a former military chaplain haunted by his past, leads a dwindling congregation at a historic abolitionist church in Upstate New York. When one of his parishioners (Amanda Seyfried) confesses her concern for her radical activist husband, Toller’s own beliefs are dramatically challenged. Schrader has masterfully composed a film of classic rigour and stately grace where undercurrents of emotion threaten to break apart an orderly life.



United States. 2018. Directed by Michael Mayer. (98 mins.) Rated PG-13. [CC, AD]

THE SEAGULL, featuring a fabulous cast including Saoirse Ronan, Annette Bening and Elisabeth Moss, intertwines a myriad of complex relationships comprised from Chekhov's alluringly insulated world!

"It captures the true sense of humanism at the very soul of the story, which reflects both the lightness and the true darkness of life." - Katie Walsh, Tribune News Service

An exquisite adaptation of Anton Chekhov’s classic play, THE SEAGULL is a lively, absorbing saga about art, fame and a family entangled in a clever web of love triangles set against the backdrop of a stunning country estate. Combining the talents of Elisabeth Moss from The Handmaid’s Tale, three-time Oscar nominee Saoirse Ronan from LADY BIRD and Annette Bening, one of Hollywood’s biggest names ever since AMERICAN BEAUTY, a series of elaborate encounters play out over the course of one dramatic weekend. Director Michael Mayer turns his source material into a sparkling, fast-paced and sultry adventure.



United States. 2018. Directed by Betsy West, Julie Cohen. (97 mins.) Rated PG. [CC]

RBG provides an engaging, enlightening and entertaining look into Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's intellect, work ethic, bone-deep decency and commitment to justice!

"Stands as a film that informs, and sometimes even delights with its portrait of one of the more remarkable lawyers, judges and feminist icons of our time." - Bilge Ebiri, Village Voice

This compelling and courageous documentary details precisely how Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s vigorous dissenting opinion and ferocious 20-push-up workouts have earned the tiny, soft-spoken intellectual giant the iconic title Notorious RBG. Now 84, her strategic, trailblazing work in defining gender-discrimination has created unprecedented legal advancements for women’s rights and equality. Through intimate interviews and unprecedented access to Ginsburg’s life outside the court, RBG tells the electric and engaging story of a woman who, refusing to relinquish her passionate duty, is still a force with which to be reckoned.
