Iceland/France/Ukraine. 2019. Directed by Benedikt Erlinggson. (101 mins.) Not Rated. in English and in Icelandic, Spanish & Ukrainian with English subtitles

An original, compelling and delightful tale, WOMAN AT WAR is an ecological thriller that exudes a puckish sense of humor!

"An artful fable that examines what it really means to save the world, Benedikt Erlingsson's Woman at War is the rarest of things: a crowd-pleaser about climate change." - David Ehrlich, Indiewire

An intelligent, satisfying, comedic crowd-pleaser, WOMAN AT WAR takes on pressing global concerns with humor and heart. Halla is a much-beloved, middle-aged Reykjavik choir conductor who leads a secret life as an eco-warrior, fighting to save the Icelandic countryside from industrial pollution one noxious electrical pylon at a time. But when Halla learns that she’s finally been cleared to adopt a Ukrainian orphan, she must decide if she is willing to abandon her role as savior of the Icelandic Highlands in order to fulfill her dream of becoming a mother. This powerful, pitch-perfect story is a droll, audacious tale that hilariously thumbs its nose at the establishment.


Hungary. 2019. Directed by Milorad Krstic. (96 mins.) Rated R. [CC,AD]

ONE WEEK ONLY! RUBEN BRANDT, COLLECTOR is a clever art history primer tucked nicely into a visually splendid post-modern heist film!

"An acrobatic, larkish globetrotting adventure about paintings and psychotherapy that defies easy categorization save inclusion on any adult animation fan's must-see list." - Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times

Director Milorad Krstic's encyclopedic knowledge of art history and love for world cinema shines in every frame of this entertaining, fast-pace, animated thriller for adults. As a psychotherapist, Ruben Brandt advises his patients to possess their problems in order to conquer them. But alas, Brandt has his own issues – terrible nightmares as the result of subliminal messaging he was subjected to as a child. When he decides to follow his own doctrine, he suddenly becomes the ringleader of a gang of notorious art thieves. RUBEN BRANDT, COLLECTOR is a shrewd mash-up of caper flick, art history lesson and espionage thriller all rolled up into one gorgeous, hand-drawn gem!


Colombia/Denmark/Mexico. 2018. Directed by Cristina Gallego, Ciro Guerra. (125 mins.) Not Rated. in English and in Spanish & Wayuu with English subtitles.

ONE WEEK ONLY! BIRDS OF PASSAGE is a sweeping Colombian drama about a native family striving to keep their culture and traditions alive amid the pursuits of material wealth!

"A visually stunning and often surprising true story that charts the rise of the Colombian drug business back before Escobar from its unexpected roots, among an indigenous clan in way over their heads." -  Peter Debruge, Variety

Documenting the true-to-life rise and fall of rival Wayuu clans in northern Colombia, this epic tale of family and greed is a meditation on the corrupting forces of wealth and power. What was meant to be a one-time marijuana deal becomes a major drug trafficking operation when a young suitor tries to scrape up enough money for a dowry. Once he gets a taste of the dizzying pleasures of the outside world, this new wealth sets in motion the disintegration of a culture rich in tradition. BIRDS OF PASSAGE is a fascinating, unexpected take on the cartel genre from Oscar-nominated filmmakers Cristina Gallego and Ciro Guerra (EMBRACE OF THE SERPENT) that will leave you utterly breathless.


Iceland. 2019. Directed by Joe Penna. (98 mins.) Rated PG-13. [CC,AD]

Mads Mikkelsen is luminous in ARCTIC, a powerful and shivering survival story set in an icy wilderness!

"Arctic tells this story of self-reliance and survival with such austerity and absolute integrity that the results are breathtaking." - Oliver Jones, Observer

A captivating, visceral story that unfolds naturally while elegantly portraying a struggle for hope that is hard to come by in the forlorn, frozen tundra, ARCTIC is a gripping tale of survival. Steely and stoic, Mads Mikkelsen delivers a compelling, complex performance in this tale of a man forced to use his sparse resources when a rescue helicopter crashes in the fierce wind, leaving a seriously injured woman in his care. Tested by the bitter cold and the unpredictability of his natural surroundings, he faces unrelenting, perilous challenges on his quest for medical attention. It's a stark, harrowing slice of life-or-death adventure.


United States. 2019. Directed by Karyn Kusama. (123 mins.) Rated R. [CC,AD]

Emotionally resonant and satisfyingly twisted, DESTROYER is a fitfully engaging crime thriller!

"Kidman's such a furious engine of rage driving the story forward and this unapologetically pulpy drama benefits from her relentless ability to wrestle control of every situation." - Eric Kohn, Indiewire

Director Karyn Kusama breaks cinematic ground in DESTROYER with a female detective every bit as badass, brooding and brash as her male counterparts. When a new case uncovers traumas from a past undercover operation, corrupt LAPD cop Erin Bell (Nicole Kidman in a glorious physical and emotional transformation), haggard from years of hard living, is forced to face her personal and professional demons. As we watch the action unfold over two tight timelines, the layers of Erin are peeled like an onion and the truth begins to come into focus. This electrifying hard-boiled thriller pulls no punches and keeps us guessing until the very end.
