MISSISSIPPI GRIND United States. 2015. Directed by Anna Boden, Ryan Fleck. (108 mins.) Rated R.
MISSISSIPPI GRIND, with marvelous performances from Ryan Reynolds and Ben Mendelsohn, is a heartwarming character study and a sly rumination on the mysterious interplay of fate and friendship!
In this lively, freewheeling road movie, Ben Mendelsohn (Bloodline, BLACK SEA) plays Gerry, a talented but down-on-his-luck poker player whose fortunes begin to change when he meets a charismatic young traveler named Curtis (Ryan Reynolds, WOMAN IN GOLD). As they make their way down the Mississippi River to a high stakes game in New Orleans, the two manage to find themselves in just about every bar, racetrack, casino and pool hall they can find. This intoxicating tale, suffused with an evocative soundtrack and enlivened by two pitch-perfect performances, flawlessly captures the seedy world of small-time losers and big-time dreamers.
FINDERS KEEPERS United States. 2015. Directed by Bryan Carberry, J. Clay Tweel. (82 mins.) Rated R.
FINDERS KEEPERS is a surprisingly touching, poignant and jaw-dropping oddity about an epic battle over an amputated leg that garnered international attention!
You can't make this stuff up. In rural North Carolina, Shannon Whisnant's nose for a bargain led him to buy a used grill at an auction, but the severed human limb he found among its ashes was not part of the deal. He spied a golden opportunity to cash in on the media frenzy that soon followed, but when the amputee recognizes his missing appendage and demands to have it back, the bizarre story, along with its perfectly twisted characters, ends up in a heated, televised courtroom battle. The outlandish documentary memorably examines greed, ego, family dysfunction and redemption with humor and pathos.
MISTRESS AMERICA United States. 2015. Directed by Noah Baumbach. (84 mins.) Rated R.
MISTRESS AMERICA is a breezy, tender, laugh-out-loud salute to female friendship with whip-smart, rapid-fire dialogue!
Director Noah Baumbach re-teams with star and co-writer Greta Gerwig for the madcap MISTRESS AMERICA, a comedy about chasing dreams and schemes in the big city. Tracy was expecting her first year in New York to be filled with excitement and glamour, but freshman year has proven to be lonely. When she meets her adventurous, zany, soon-to-be stepsister, Brooke, she is rescued from her disappointment and seduced by Brooke's alluring mad schemes. It's impossible to not get caught up in their whirlwind of enthusiastic antics!
SHANGHAI United States/China. 2015. Directed by Mikael Hafstrom. (105 mins.) Rated R. in English and in Mandarin, Japanese and German with English subtitles
SHANGHAI is a gorgeous, moody thriller set in 1940s China on the eve of war!
Set in Japanese-occupied China during World War II, SHANGHAI is a thrilling mix of drama, action and romance. An American agent from the Naval Intelligence Office (John Cusack) gets caught up with a crime lord when he arrives to investigate the murder of an old friend, unraveling some unforeseen mysteries. An intriguing film noir, this beguiling, gorgeously shot cinematic wonder will make you yearn for the days of Bogart and Bergman.
GRANDMA United States. 2015. Directed by Paul Weitz. (79 mins.) Rated R.
Lily Tomlin is a wonder in GRANDMA, a hilariously marvelous movie about the meaning of family and the value of living life on your own terms!
Lily Tomlin hits a career high point as acerbic poet Elle Reid in GRANDMA, Paul Weitz's caustically funny and poignant family drama. Elle's granddaughter, Sage, turns up unexpectedly needing $600 by sundown, and the two spend the day trying to rustle up the cash while unexpectedly rattling skeletons and digging up secrets. It's a delightfully touching cinematic gem with a phenomenal supporting ensemble that includes Marcia Gay Harden, Judy Greer and Sam Elliott.
