"This coming-of-age love story is all texture, tone and nuance...Luca Guadagnino has made a lovely cinematic feather. And it floats down beautifully, riding a soft breeze of melancholy and grace." - Tom Long, Detroit News

"It's a piercing glimpse of a young man's bright, confounding first love, the kind of love that brings disorientation and rhapsody." - Chris Vognar, Dallas Morning News


Director Luca Guadagnino's sun-drenched masterpiece is a lush exploration of desire and intimacy, an intoxicating reminder of the tentative gestures and fleeting moments that mark first love. As the summer of 1983 in his family's Italian villa lazily drifts by for 17 year-old Elio (Timothée Chalamet), a visiting graduate student (Armie Hammer) seems at first to be little more than the latest in a long line of his father's research assistants. However, as the days linger, a tender connection develops between the two. CALL ME BY YOUR NAME is an extravagantly beautiful, emotionally resplendent romance.

"Paul Thomas Anderson's Phantom Thread casts a remarkable spell; it wraps around you, like a delicately scented cashmere shawl woven from music and color and astonishing faces." - Moira Macdonald, Seattle Times


Set in the glamour of 1950s post-war London, Paul Thomas Anderson's (MAGNOLIA, THERE WILL BE BLOOD) moody and mesmerizing PHANTOM THREAD is a serenely sensual, spellbinding and seductive portrait of a tortured genius. Renowned dressmaker Reynolds Woodcock (Daniel Day-Lewis in his final film) and his sister Cyril (Lesley Manville) are at the center of British fashion, dressing royalty, movie stars, heiresses, socialites, debutants and dames with their distinct style and grace. Women come and go through Woodcock's life, providing the bachelor with inspiration and companionship, until he becomes enamored by a strong-willed woman (Vicky Krieps) who refuses to come second to his artistry. A half-harrowing, half-tender chamber piece about the nature of love, there isn't one wasted frame in Anderson's delirious, lush, hypnotic meditation on the push-and-pull that exists between obsessions professional and personal.

I, TONYA

United States. 2017. Directed by Craig Gillespie. (119 mins.) Rated R.

Factual and funny, I, TONYA captures both Harding's radiance as well as her frayed edges in a tale bursting with confidence and style! 

Golden Globe Winner!
Best Supporting Actress - Allison Janney

"Scene by scene, it made me laugh, cringe, get angry, upset, confused, enlightened, entertained, almost tearful and awed." - Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune

"I, Tonya is kitschy and smart and funny and insightful, and sometimes sobering." - Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-TImes


Oregonian Tonya Harding dominated the ice with unrivaled athleticism and the triple axel, but she stole the headlines for something else entirely. Brought to life in unforgettable performances by Margot Robbie and Golden Globe winner Allison Janney, I, TONYA is an irreverent yet sympathetic look at one of the biggest scandals in sports history. Based on interviews with Harding and her ex-husband, Jeff Gillooly, who orchestrated the famous attack on rival skater Nancy Kerrigan resulting in Harding's lifetime ban from figure skating, this hilarious, shamelessly entertaining and darkly comical story breaks the mold of the conventional screen biopic. Directed by Craig Gillespie (LARS AND THE REAL GIRL), its defiantly unconventional search for the truth behind the screaming headlines that made a monster out of the potential champion finds humor, heart and hard knocks in one of the 20th century's most gripping true-life tales.

"Magical, thrilling and romantic to the core, a sensual and fantastical fairy tale with moral overtones, it's a film that plays by all the rules and none of them, going its own way with fierce abandon." - Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

"You never know where The Shape of Water is going. But, like water, you let it engulf you and sweep you away." - Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times


Stunning, sweet and spectacular, Guillermo del Toro, genius teller of tales, has created a wondrous take on the classic monster movie, lending it the magic, fiery passion of fairy tales. At the height of the Cold War in the early 60s, Elisa (Sally Hawkins), while working as a janitor in a high-tech US government laboratory, discovers a frighteningly fascinating creature being used for a top-secret experiment. The cruel and self-serving federal agent in charge (Michael Shannon) seems convinced that the surest way to handle the mysterious being is to kill it, but Elisa will risk everything to prevent that from happening. No filmmaker has plumbed the soul of screen monsters with more empathy and fervor than del Toro (PAN'S LABYRINTH) and in THE SHAPE OF WATER, he delivers an unforgettably spellbinding and poetic production brimming with grace and grandeur.

DARKEST HOUR

"As a portrait of leadership at its most brilliant, thoughtful and morally courageous, Darkest Hour is the movie we need right now." - Ann Hornaday, Washington Post

"A persuasive window into history, and so arresting in its portrait of one of the 20th century's most important leaders that every minute of it is absorbing." - Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle


Brilliantly depicting the myriad obstacles Winston Churchill faced in his determination to resist the Nazis, DARKEST HOUR ushers us into the backrooms and bunkers of British government during a pivotal point in World War II. With British resources dwindling and the U.S. yet to enter the fray, Churchill (a courageous and transformative performance from Gary Oldman) proves himself to be a living, breathing lion of a leader. Working from Anthony McCarten's ingeniously structured script, director Joe Wright (PRIDE AND PREJUDICE, ATONEMENT) deploys a battery of inventive visual designs to capture his story with dazzle and pizazz.

"The film is a dazzling collaboration between two of the most impressive art-house actresses of the past decade." - Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune

"Gerwig's directorial debut is a joy from start to finish, a warm, generous snapshot of teenage vulnerability and exuberance." - Laura Zarum, Village Voice


Incredibly personal and immensely relatable, Greta Gerwig's astounding directorial debut LADY BIRD excavates both humor and pathos in the tricky bond between a mother and her teenage daughter. The rebellious young Christine McPherson (splendidly brought to life by Saoirse Ronan) - affectionately known as "Lady Bird" - is an ambitious, bright and precocious high school senior navigating the pressures and constraints of Catholic school in Sacramento. She dreams of a future full of east coast skyscrapers, Ivy League universities and cosmopolitan culture. This witty, captivating treasure is a delightful and moving look at the relationships that shape us and the beliefs that define us. This is one of the year's best movies!
