United States. 2018. Directed by David Lowery. (93 mins.) Rated PG-13.

Pure, easy-going entertainment and a fitting farewell to charismatic legend Robert Redford, THE OLD MAN AND THE GUN is a triumphant slice of Americana!

"A puckish film with a wistful quality, a gently comic end-of-the-line adventure about doing what you love, the passage of time and the things that might have been." - Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

Infused with Hollywood’s elegiac, entertaining history of outlaw charm, this glorious true-life tale of career bank robber Forrest Tucker is an irresistible, exhilarating story of mischief. Known for escaping prison 18 times since his first incarceration at age fifteen, Tucker (Robert Redford in his final acting role) is now in his seventies and free. He can’t, however, seem to resist the lure of a good bank heist. With a sublime supporting cast that includes Sissy Spacek, Casey Affleck, Danny Glover and Tom Waits, director David Lowery (AIN’T THEM BODIES SAINTS, A GHOST STORY) breathes invigorating new life into THE OLD MAN AND THE GUN, a classic, glorious tale about a man living life by his own rules.



United States. 2018. Directed by Jacque Audiard. (121 mins.) Rated R.

A sharp, fun, barn-burning tale of brotherhood in the Old West, THE SISTERS BROTHERS is a crackling, adventurous ride!

"A knockout, one-of-a-kind western from French director Jacques Audiard in which odd-bird frontier hitmen are played by Joaquin Phoenix and a hot-damn he's great John C. Reilly. Saddle up." - Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

Bursting with dark humor and irreverence, this colorful adaptation of Patrick deWitt’s award-winning western novel is an eccentric balance of wit, tenderness and rough-and-tumble spirit. THE SISTERS BROTHERS tells the knockout story of two notorious, grizzled and cynical hitmen (John C. Reilly and Joaquin Phoenix) who set out across Oregon in the Gold Rush of 1851 to kill a prospector accused of stealing from their tyrannical crime boss. Quick thinking and an even quicker draw are the requisite means of survival. Director Jacque Audiard (RUST AND BONE) and his skilled cast give this wild and willful romp a heavy dose of heart and soul with its own unique stamp.



UK. 2018. Directed by Wash Westmoreland. (111 mins.) Rated R. [CC,AD]

COLETTE is an inspiring tale of empowerment told through a lens of acceptance and humanity with a spellbinding performance from Keira Knightley!

"Visually delightful, deliciously funny and delectably bawdy, Colette earns Keira Knightley official status as queen of the period film." - Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune

Like Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette, the celebrated French writer and icon, director Wash Westmoreland’s (STILL ALICE) film COLETTE is energetic, utterly fearless and unapologetically feminist. Ripe for adventure and unafraid of her desires, Colette (Keira Knightley) becomes infatuated with and marries Willy (Dominic West), a charming, much older Parisian publisher who encourages her to pen the infamous Claudine books as one of his “factory” authors. Her provocative and scandalous debut – falsely credited to her husband – becomes the toast of the town, triggering a battle for identity, equality and self-determination. Exquisite, elegant and tantalizingly tumultuous, this passionate true story is a radiant, riveting and exhilarating kick.



UK. 2018. Directed by Isabel Coixet. (113 mins.) Rated PG. [CC,AD]

A charming adaptation with exemplary performances, THE BOOKSHOP is the captivating tale of a free-spirited woman who risks everything to open a bookstore in a conservative English seaside town!

"A gentle, quiet film...it's beautifully evocative of the musty, inviting smell of a bookshop on a cool day, or of the nostalgic pleasure of old photographs." - Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times

Quietly subversive and bolstered by superb performances, THE BOOKSHOP is a wistful celebration of words, books and the people who pore over them. When Florence (Emily Mortimer) decides to open a bookstore in the a small, seaside village in Suffolk, she goes head to head with an endlessly calculating local bigwig (Patricia Clarkson) whose wish is to turn the abandoned house into an arts center. But Florence presses on, emboldened by her new friendship with a recluse (the delightful Bill Nighy) who encourages her to follow her dreams. Set in 1959, Isabel Coixet (LEARNING TO DRIVE) delivers a charming, enchanting and tender tale about finding joy in the power of ideas and the books that contain them.
