United States/UK. 2018. Directed by Tim Wardle. (96 mins.) Rated PG-13. [CC]

An engrossing and eye-opening journey, the best way to experience the excellent documentary THREE IDENTICAL STRANGERS is to do so without knowing a single thing about it... but read on if you must!

"Tim Wardle's documentary contains as many twists as a great thriller" - Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic

In an unbelievable true story that became a tabloid sensation in 1980, three college students discover that they were identical triplets separated at birth. The brothers quickly become world-famous, forge a relationship and become fast friends. The toast of Manhattan, the triplets are living the high life. But their fairy-tale reunion sets off a chain of events that ultimately unearths an extraordinary and sinister secret that could answer controversial questions at the heart of human behavior. Equal parts enthralling and upsetting but 100% fascinating, THREE IDENTICAL STRANGERS goes beyond the tabloid fodder and delivers a gripping, juicy conspiracy thriller as well as a beautifully heartbreaking rumination on nature versus nurture.



Spain. 2018. Directed by Carla Simon. (97 mins.) Not Rated. in Catalan with English subtitles

SUMMER 1993 is a tiny wonder and an utterly spellbinding tribute to the resiliency of youth!

"Not since Boyhood has a film shown this much respect and understanding for what it's like to be a child." - Scott Marks, San Diego Reader

Beautifully crafted in every way and anchored by a flawless performance from its young star, Carla Simon’s absorbing autobiographical feature debut SUMMER 1993 is an unforgettable film of disarming authenticity. Following her mother’s untimely death, six-year-old Frida is sent to live with her uncle’s family in their sun-soaked, picturesque countryside home. She uneasily feels her way around this strange new place, battling her pain and loss but yearning to find home. Punctuated by moments of youthful exuberance and mature ruminations, this extraordinarily moving snapshot of childhood is a tender, evocative and quietly powerful treasure.



United States. 2018. Directed by Brett Haley. (97 mins.) Rated PG-13. [CC]

HEARTS BEAT LOUD is an irresistible, heartwarming father-daughter tale with a pair of incredibly winning performances from Nick Offerman and Kiersey Clemons and an exceptional soundtrack!

"A sparkling gem with an indie-rock soul. Offerman turns in his best big-screen performance yet." - Rafer Guzman, Newsday

Brett Haley, director of Salem Cinema favorites I’LL SEE YOU IN MY DREAMS and THE HERO, delivers another hit with this joy-inducing, harmonious family fable. Hoping to hold onto their connection through a shared love of music, a widowed hipster father (Nick Offerman) goads his ambitious and talented daughter (Kiersey Clemons) into forming an unlikely – and incredibly catchy – pop band the summer before she heads to UCLA. Channeling their feelings about the life changes each of them faces into their songwriting, the duo creates an unmistakably memorable bond. HEARTS BEAT LOUD is an endearing, energetic tale and an evocative ode to youthful dreams.



United States/Canada. 2018. Directed by Shana Feste. (104 mins.) Rated R. [CC, AD]

BOUNDARIES with Christopher Plummer and Vera Farmiga is an eccentric and uproarious road-trip movie peppered with poignant and inspiring moments of self-discovery!

"A touching yet wised-up father-daughter road movie that's the best version of this sort of film you could imagine." - Owen Glieberman, Variety

This quintessentially American story of an estranged family struggling to re-connect is given fresh perspective by writer/director Shana Feste, who coaxes edgy performances from her phenomenal cast. The normally cool, confident Vera Farmiga shows vulnerability as an anxious single mother who reluctantly agrees to accompany her wayward father, Jack (Christopher Plummer), down the west coast to her sister’s house after he’s kicked out of his nursing home. But only if he agrees to pay her son Henry’s tuition. In order to make this funding possible, Jack meets up with some aging-hippie pals along the way to secretly unload his epic marijuana stash. BOUNDARIES is a moving mixture of riotous road trip shenanigans and heart-rending reunions.



United States. 2018. Directed by Morgan Neville. (94 mins.) Rated PG-13. [CC, AD]

WON'T YOU BE MY NEIGHBOR? is the highly anticipated documentary about Mr. Rogers and how he built his legacy on spreading kindness!

"At a time when tolerance and compassion often seem to be under siege, 'Won't You Be My Neighbor?' reminds us that the softest voices often have the strongest impact."
 - Calvin Wilson, St. Louis Post-Dispatch

A cultural icon, Mister Rogers spent 50 years on a children’s program beseeching us to love and to allow ourselves to be loved. With television as his pulpit, he creatively and compassionately helped transform the concept of childhood. Using puppets and play to explore the most complicated issues of the day—race, disability, equality and tragedy–he spoke directly to children, and they responded by forging a lifelong bond with him, by the millions. Oscar-winning director Morgan Neville (20 FEET FROM STARDOM) reflects Rogers’ unyielding purity and imagination in WON'T YOU BE MY NEIGHBOR?, and through archival footage, paints a more complete portrait of this quietly heroic, revered man who touched all of our hearts with his warmth, gentleness and grace. It's a timely message for all of us to reach out, spread kindness and be just a little more neighborly. Please won't you be our neighbor?



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.
